First of all i will look for eatables and other daily necessities like clothes and medicine. Afterwards i will take a small item which will remind me of the good days, anything luxurious.
What is the most special thing I did today- I was MYSELF. Happy and in love and unapologetically myself.

Food would be the obvious top priority, then clothing/shoes, as I can imagine everything you'd own after 15 or so years would be basically in tatters. After that medicine, and any sort of sanitation/hygiene products, as they'd probably all be in located together. Finally I would search for literature of any kind, anything that I could comfortably carry. Especially with access to online or electronic reading, I think books have become something we take for granted, instead of viewing them as the luxury they are.

If I found myself in this situation, I would look for things that would increase my knowledge. For example, I am not that good with memorizing places so I would definitely look for maps. Another example of what I would look for is books. This is not just because of my love for reading but because of the lessons and insight we gain from books.

- Reading Device: B00KC6I06S
I have actually thought about this so many times. A lot would depend on how far I have to carry everything back, what I had to transport it with, and what I was in desperate need of.
Most important things:
-medicine, bandages, medical stuff
After that, if I have room, hygiene products, books, anything that can be used for something needed (wire, string, etc.)
I make a lot of things around our home from other things. I'm a bit of a gypsy and live in a rural farming town on a mountain, so I can be quite creative!

Food will be the first on the list. Then I'd look for medicines and clothes as well. Knives will also be useful.

I would look for food, clothing, toiletries and blankets. Any camping materials would also be a great find! I would also look for backpacks to make carrying everything around with you.

I would be searching for food, medicine, warm clothes and blankets, weapons, flashlights, batteries and if I could I would try to scavenge gas from cars to put in my car. I would still like to be able drive from point A to point B.

I would definitely look for necessities like food, clothes, and tools. For tools, I would look for a knife to defend myself with or even a gun if there is one. I would also try to make the house into a suitable shelter.

I'd look for things that are well made and can help me make/repair other things. Food is great, but seeds are better (if you have a place to stay in for a season). Clothes are also great, but so are sewing kits. Perhaps that's just because I'm crafty.

I would look for food, clothing, first aid kit, and some weapons for protection. I also look for things that can connect me to the previous world

Like many post before me, I would look for food, weapons and clothes. However I think I would also try to find books or playing cards which can be used for entertainment and fire starters. Maybe artwork, I love art and wondering if it's small enough to carry it could be a happy reminder the way the remote seemed to August or the magazine was to Kristen.

- Latest Review: "Gilligan's Toy" by Janice Smith
Obviously, or at least what I would think is pretty obvious is food. Whether you needed to update your expired food, or if you have enough, then eat saving your current food. I would look for newer clothing, not only to fit the weather, but also to replace clothes that were worn, torn, and otherwise becoming useless. Medicine to me sounds like a given and weapons to carry as well.
Off the wall items, a tarp. I have found that in all my camping experiences and dystonia novels tarps come in handy for everything. Shelter, warmth, water collection, clean surface, etc.
It's Always Worth the Read.
