Tell us Tuesday is a weekly question and answer feature… I throw out a question on a frugal topic, and you answer! Feel free to leave any links to posts that you’ve written in the topic in your comments.
When we had our break-in a few months ago, they took both our laptops and my cellphone. It was a huge hassle, dealing with the police and the insurance- in fact we still haven’t been reimbursed. It’s also been difficult dealing with all the information that was stolen; I’m still trying to recreate my records.
But I am so relieved that my most valuable possessions weren’t touched. Without even talking about things without monetary value like family photos, the thieves didn’t take anything that has both financial and emotional value. I was especially relieved to find that my jewelry (mostly sentimental stuff) wasn’t touched, and my husband was hugely relieved that his five guitars weren’t stolen. All together, my pearls and his instruments are worth about â‚¬5,000 monetarily… but so much more sentimentally!
How much are your most emotionally valuable possessions worth?
