As a part of preparedness, cash isn’t on the top of the list. Put your money into things that would not only sustain you and your family, but also can be used to barter with. This article is another example as to how cash poor we are today.

Confusing Money for Value

You should have seen us when we wore RolexesTM, big diamonds and the latest fashions.  You should have seen our 3000 sq. ft. house that required a full-time housekeeper and gardeners, not to mention the electric, phone and water bills.  You should have seen my long, weekly manicured fingernails and perfectly coiffed hair.  You should have seen the Cadillacs we drove.   It was the image of monetary wealth – unfortunately, all too often confused with real value.

Great Ways to Carry Emergency Cash

As part of my Every Day Carry (EDC) I always like to keep enough cash on had to at least buy an entire tank of gas.  When I travel on business I like to have at least $1,000 in cash with me at all times.  Carrying cash is always a challenge because, if lost, can’t be replaced like a credit card.  This is why it is important to spread your cash around and never keep in all in one place (like your wallet).
