DEAR HELOISE: My sister’s home burned to the bottom and he or she misplaced every little thing. She mentioned she wished she had time to get her photograph albums out as there have been so many reminiscences in them. This made me suppose. I noticed I’ve a number of containers with photograph albums and memorabilia on cabinets in closets all through the home. If I needed to go away the home immediately, I most likely would not be capable of collect all of them and carry the heavy containers out in time to save lots of them. So, I went to a storage sale and acquired two rolling suitcases, very inexpensively. I now retailer our photographs and different irreplaceable gadgets within the suitcases, which might simply be rolled out of the home in an emergency. They’re lined up in a closet near the entrance door. — SARAH IN KENTUCKY
