    Default What's your personal "can't live without it" list?

    I'm talking about material things here. I'm just assuming most of us would head the list with things like "my family" or "self-respect" otherwise.

    Mine is:
    Great Coffee
    High Speed Internet
    Books

    If we're talking stuff

    ~ books

    ~ chocolate or cookies
    (I could probably give up one or the other if I had to but never both)

    ~ my smushy pillow & my fuzzy, cuddly, blankets

    ~ the three rings I wear everyday
    1- One of only 2 or three things my father ever personally got for me
    2- The second one is from mom that has been passed down from her grandmother.
    3- The third is my engagement ring. DH picked it out for me when we had nothing. It is not large or fancy but there it is very me and there is the newness of love and committment attached to it. My wedding ring disappeared in one of my weight yo-yos and I never really liked the band anyway even though we agreed on them. DH picked the engagement ring out without me. I wear my it, generally with the stone turned in and protected, as I would my wedding band. Even if we ever split I would keep the ring as a symbol of the good stuff.

    My beads and everything to make beaded stuff.

    My sewing skills and all my sewing machines, fabrics, and the 'little stuff' for sewing.

    My carpentry tools. Wish I had better skills, but I get better with every project.

    Either one of our RVs.

    My willingness to try new things.

    I love books but I could get those from the library.
    Hi-speed internet we can't even get where we live!

    What I can't live without though is....
    My car - we live in the country and I'd never get anywhere without it.
    My garden - learned to love it last year and have fantasy dreams about a pantry filled of colourful canned veggies!
    My satellite tv - I could give it up but not until the final season of ER ends.
