There are two videos today. In the first, North Carolina Prepper discusses bartering something other than precious metals, in paticular, vices such as cigarettes. In the second video, James Yeager expands on barter items beyond vices and gives plenty of ideas for you to consider.
In should state that I’m generally not a huge fan of stockpiling supplies for bartering for two reasons: (1) you effort and money should be focused on purchasing more and more of what you and your family need to survive and (2) it puts a giant target on your back as being someone who has what others want. Granted, there are ways to barter anonymously and I understand that it’s difficult to gather everything you might need, so there could be a place for barter in long term emergencies. Regardless, it’s way down on my list of “must haves.” Consider your preps and barter options carefully.
