I still have the small extinguisher by the entry door, but I bought a new one for the bedroom that is rated 3A, 40BC and can be recharged after use. I think I paid about $40 for it at Lowes. I wanted something big enough that I could hopefully knock down a fire between the bedroom and the door to get out at night. Of course I have smoke detectors in the living area and the bedroom so I should get a very early warning if a fire should start.
You might want to read this previous post when you have nothing better to do! The ABC's of smoke, CO, & LP detectors, etc.

MSHappyCampers...that small one by the door is almost useless.

Used ours when I had two new Goodyear tires blow out on a travel trailer and the tires almost caught fire.

That small extinguisher didn't last very long at all.

You're absolutely right Arch! About all it's good for is a small stove fire!

Test your smoke detectors, inspect your fire extingushers, practice an escape plan in the dark (suprise drills in the middle of the night are the best) and if you can, practice with your extingusher on a live fire. Question, can you really get out of your escape window? How high is it? Something to think about in the perparations.
