I don’t know about you, but I’ve developed the habit of not carrying cash or coin in my daily life. Most of my large transactions (like paying bills) are online, and the smaller day-to-day stuff (bagel shop, grocery, gas) uses my debit card. When before I was disabled, I used to use cash and throw my change into a jar. And sometimes cash it in when times were tough. They are tougher now, but, I don’t generate any more change! :-(
I know. In TEOTWAWKI, I’m screwed.
Not that cash has real value as a medium of exchange, anyway.
SO, if you want a truly depressing read, go to the link here from Charleston Voice. Then
start continue hoarding canned and dry goods, water filters, ammunition, silver and medication. Oh, and toilet paper!
If you can afford to.
