Today we're talking about the top 10 things we would try and save if our house was on fire. No people or pets, they are taken care of.
- My computer, phone and iPad because all the pictures, files, contacts and e-mails are on it, plus they are my work tools.
- My car, I have waited for it for 8 months, it's technically a baby!
- Photo albums, because in the olden days the pictures were a matter of paper, not pixels!
- Seasonal items like my Halloween Ghost Lights, the Elf on the Shelf or the St. Patrick's Day Leprechaun Hotel
- I currently stash a couple of Minecraft party favours and birthday gifts for Colin's 8th birthday that I would hate to lose since I had to order and import them.
- Craft supplies - that sh** is expensive around here!
- Body lotions. I have quite the collection, and they're not available in Switzerland
- My purse(s)
- My wedding ring - not the dress, though Did I tell you that I had to go and pick it up because it didn't sell?
- The wine bottles
What I guess I'm saying with this list is: Clothes are replaceable. DVDs and Books, too. Furniture, appliances - we can get new ones, nicer ones, actually! When I moved in here, my then boyfriend promised "anything you hate, we'll throw it out!" I never made use of that. I'd much rather spend our money for traveling.
I have been working so hard to declutter our house, it would probably be freeing to start over. Not that I want to start a fire!
