    I could not live without my chapstick or lip balm.

    Having a home to live in. May be material, but even the cavemen had a cave to rest in.

    Material thing..I could not live without..how about I will replace it with absolute necessity as food and water and often more important than food...bath tub, bath oil beads and hot water.

    Can't think of anything.  Voice of experience, not just talking.  Once (circa 1984), deciding I needed to "reinvent" myself, I dumped nearly everything I owned in a Portland, Oregon, dumpster.  Right down to my baby pictures, which incensed my sisters no end when they I told them about it a few years later.

    Kept my manuscripts (stories I'd written) but could have lived without if needed.  Hung onto a couple sets of clothes, but would have been arrested without those.  And a guitar, but later traded that off for a week's residence on a couple's living room couch when I was essentially homeless for a time.

    So...nope.  Can't think of  a thing.

    My laptop. A lot of my life and career require it. Especially writing and design.

    My Bible or my Kindle with a copy of the Bible on it.  Actually, when the Persecution of the American Church begins and our Bibles are taken from us as Hate Speech Documents, I'll live w/out it by having Scripture memorized.

    My laptop. You basically have access to anything you could want or need through your laptop so if I couldn't have anything else I'd choose that.

    My Bible, although I know it is the living and active Word of God, but I can put my hands on it, so in that sense, it is material.  Faith Repear

    Computer for me as I use it practically every day.

    I need it for communication and learning. It is a gateway to know what is going on all over the world.

    It is definitely a must for me to survive.

    Number one is air, two is warmth, three is water, four is food.

    Facetious and ambiguously broad question, madam.  There are several things for me.  The first thing that come to mind is the collection of items used for basic personal hygiene.
