Seeing money's about to become worthless, what foods should we start
hoarding?

Beans. They provide fuel also. Couple of bean meals and the methane will
keep the oven going long enough to make a roast.

Canned and dried.

Stock up on firewood too and learn to cook outdoors. ;-)

Yes! And onions and other root foods in a dark basement.

Those would have been on my grandparents' list many years ago -- they lived
in Ohio, old frame house with dark root cellar. Definitely would not work
for me -- one-story house on a concrete slab in hot climate (East Texas).

I keep a few cases of MRE's on hand, mainly because I like to play with my
food.

Diamond Adult Premium Dog Food. Flyball dogs give it three paws up.

MREs aren't cheap! I don't buy them but have seen the cost for the
civilian version. But they sure do serve a useful purpose. I have to eat
them when deployed at times, and the jalapeno cheese spread eaten right
out of the packet is the bomb! I'm impressed with the spiciness of them
these days. I do lean towards the vegetarian meals, but MRE Etiquette
decrees that you just grab one out of the communal box and take your
chances.

You're in the military? I thought it was your husband who was enlisted.
Not that it matters

I was just outside a little while ago, and saw no sign of the sky
falling. People may not have money to buy the nicer things in life, but
I don't see anybody at risk of starving. Much of the food in the US is
used for animal feed. Perhaps fewer animals will be grown for food, and
there will be that much more food for people.

None. Develop Anorexia Nervosa instead... its time has come.




Coffee, cigarettes, and .22LR ammunition. (Useful in their own rights,
and as alternate currencies)
