Cold Hard Cash

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

If today all the banks were to go down and you could not get your money out of the bank...how much money do you have on hand?

We keep one months pay in cash in a fireproof lock box. 

We also keep $300 cash for quick emergency type situations.

We keep several grand in our bedroom safe. Anyone who is going to keep emergency money should remember to keep a good quantity of smaller bills. If a true emergency ever comes, no one will want to, or be able to make change for large bills.

Yeah.  We have lots of smaller bills.  Very few large bills.  We started stashing it in there $5 and $10 at a time.  We kept it up until we had one months pay plus some in there.

In a true emergency money will quickly be obsolete. Barter will be the only way to aquire things until a new economy is established. True story, look into it.
