I've been watching the news on the stock drops the last few days. I was considering pulling cash out of my account to have a bit on hand, then got to thinking. Well, if cash is worthless, then what? I don't want to give out ammo as barter, I don't want to arm someone that might come back to me later that night What would a silver or gold coin mean to someone that is starving? What are other small, inexpensive items for barter assuming that standard currency items (cash, gold/silver) doesn't mean anything. If you were trying to get by in NOLA during Katrina, what would be of value to someone? random ideas Canned goods TP beer pop tarts tools? Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
