“Historically, silver and gold bullion have acted as a long-term store of value. Thus, they are considered an excellent way to preserve purchasing power.
For example, today it takes nearly the same quantity of silver to buy a gallon of gas as it did 40 years ago. Compare this to our current fiat currency, the U.S. dollar. Forty years ago, gasoline cost 35 cents per gallon. Today, this same gallon costs over $3.50. This means our fiat paper dollars have, when it comes to gasoline, lost nearly 90% of their purchasing power over that 40-year period.’ (Silver Saver 2011)

If you are a smoker, learn how to grow your own tobacco and stock up on rolling papers. There are several places where you can purchase seed for growing your own tobacco and the best part is you will be smoking tobacco free of any chemicals or additives. Even if you are not a smoker tobacco has traditionally proved to be a good barter commodity. Tobacco is also a medicinal herb and mypatriotsupply.com has two varieties of tobacco seed.
If you have any medical conditions that require special medications there is a possibility that you may run out of them and not be able to obtain refills in an extended disaster situation. Take some time now and research medicinal herbs that were used in the past to treat your condition. Find and purchase open pollinated seeds for them and experiment with growing them. Also research the recipes and preparation methods required for using them in medicinal teas poltices or powerdered so you will be knowledgeable on how to prepare and administer them if you need to.
Over the years I have tried products from a several companies that sell emergency supplies and foods that can be stored for extended periods of time. One of those quality company is The Ready Store. They have quite an extensive inventory of survival and emergency preparedness items. This one is used by several U.S. Government Departments like State and Homeland Security. It also has a weekly newsletter and frugal Friday other daily specials that can help save your budget for emergency supplies.
