I found this blog post that is worth reading. Check it out at: Gold and silver can not buy food . With the dollar going down in value all the time many States have made gold and silver legal tender. Where can you use it? Not when you shop for your food.
Food and water are the some of the most important things that you will need. That to me means that food is at the top of the list of things that you should have. It can be used to barter with when times get tough.
It can be used in times of emergencies or good times. It is something that you need every day.
