I haven't really bought anything that I wouldn't be ok losing. I think it's quite common for people having experienced loss not to want to hold onto anything for fear of losing it again.
I sat at home last ninth and looked around at items that I might grab...
1. Mobile phone
I would grab this and the charger because it's my main form of contact and communication.
This is the only thing non-living that I would have to grab. Everything else is replaceable. All heirlooms were lost in the fire so there isn't anything like that to grab.
I guess number two could be...
2. Stitchy stash
My stash is one craft bag, a plastic file and then 8 boxes of threads. How many items does that cover?
I might grab the file (with charts) and the threads and maybe some fabric?! Would I have time?
I might grab this only because it's easier to type on and watch Netflix on and such!
I have a painting on my wall that I bought in 2002 in Ghana and I love the vibrancy and the design and yet there are so many flaws in terms of perspective yet it makes me love it more.
Anyone who knows me knows I love Pluto, I have a collection of pluto's....which keebs would scoff at...I have four of them :) but two Pluto mugs too! I might grab those.
6. Walking dead graphic novels
I have 23 of these and yeah, not the easiest thing to grab, but they survived the fire, we're stolen by the burglars and eventually returned to me, so I fell that they should stay with me.
7-10. Wild cards
I'd like to keep these as to be used on the day...like I'd grab my boots but only if I was wearing shoes, I also have a cosy homemade jumper, and then there is that dress that I feel amazing in...lol!
