FINANCIAL DISASTER

Have you ever wondered what skills you might want or need in an economic crisis? Do you have a financial plan for your family if we were ever to have a financial depression? There are several methods to procure goods and provide for the needs of our families. Preppers try to research and develop more than one strategy for doing anything, that includes emergency financial planning. Below are some essentials for an emergency financial plan.

FINANCIAL DISASTER PREPARATION
1. CASH
A friend in Geraldine was gutted when he could not buy groceries during an event which meant electronic cash systems were out of action. If he a bit of cash stashed away he would have been ok. Add a mix of small notes & large notes to your bug out bag or fire safe. The small notes are for small purchases. Many believe that people will overpay for items in emergency situations because of shortages and extortion.
2. ONE YEAR'S SUPPLY OF EMERGENCY SUPPLIES
Having food, water, warmth, first aid, and hygiene supplies means that you won’t have to worry about paying or bartering for items. Create a plan and calculate the number of supplies to get you through a year.
3. GOLD SILVER AND COPPER
If the dollar collapses it is very likely that gold, silver, and copper will be the next currency. There are affordable ways to stock up on these commodities. In the nonfiction book: The Modern Survival Manual: Surviving the Economic Collapse of Argentina the author was asked what he wished he would have done to prepare, he said, I wish I would have had a stash of men’s silver wedding bands to barter with. Add a few silver coins to your emergency stash every year.
4. GOODS TO BARTER WITH
Goods such as food, soap, fire starters, will always be in demand. If money loses its value items such as these will be useful for trading for others things you’ll unexpectedly need. Start developing your barter network now. My neighbour barters apples from her tree for vegetables from our garden. Think of which commodities you want to stock-up on for bartering purposes
5. DEVELOPE YOUR BARTERING SKILLS
Consider developing a skill that is of value in a bartering economy. It’s the safest of all of the 5 Essentials for an Emergency Financial Plan. All the others can be stolen or lost in a crisis. Skills you’ll always have, whereas, goods you can run out of. My uncle bartered his handyman skill regularly. He had a seasonal job at a meat workswhich meant that he was laid-off a couple of months each year. When he was laid-off, he would take whatever work he could find, even if the payment for his work was in goods rather than cash.
