Money / Barter Items (Building a Bug Out Bag) by TheUrbanPrepper

hey guys this is another video for my house of bug-out bag video succession there’s a lot you are familiar with I’m doing a redesign of my current bug-out bag and from a brand-new one I have everything organized into different lockers so today I’d like to talk over the money and exchange pieces that I’m going to be including in my new bug-out bag so the first thing to discuss is currency so in an emergency situation I’m going to want to have a gala quantity of cash on me I’m not going to want to be able to rely just on Visa or MasterCard or debit or credit cards I’m going to want to have money to obtain things to barter with so for the past couple times my bride and I have been following Dave Ramsey’s the Total Money Makeover book and it’s all about saving paying off debt and one of the first items that he discusses is saving $1,000 currency for an emergency situation so we a couple years ago we did that and you know we saved up a thousand dollars and we prevent this in a safe for an emergency situation so if we have car problems and we can’t go to a bank something like that so for now we’re instead of having it in the safe I’m going to include this in my bug-out bag so I don’t just have $100 legislations in now I wanted to have a variety of different statements so I’ll appearance you what I have i vacuum-sealed it to kind of discourage me from breaking into it every once in a while okay so in this out there’s $1,000 now so I have twenty one dollar bill I should have six five one dollar bill I have five ten dollar bills there should be ten twenty dollar bills for fifty dollar bills and five $100 greenbacks so I think in muck like this could gives people by for a little bit I can do a lot of different things with that sum of currency so that is something I want to have included in my bug-out bag instead of having it in my safe so now let’s talk about the scenario if there is an fiscal breakdown so in that case I’m going to want this you know this is going to be toilet paper it’s going to be tender you know it won’t be worth anything so I want to be prepared for that scenario so I want to have something that’s going to have some kind of value after financial breakdown that I could use for trading so in that situation I want to have some goblet some rare earth the analytical survival he has five silver silvers in his leg so I’m thinking of having the same in quarry I have still haven’t decided whether I want to go with five or four time due to weight publishes because you know these about an ounce each so in this scenario I have three different American Eagle coins and I have two Canadians so I only want to have some kind of silver on me I didn’t want to include any kind of gold because you know gold a lot more expensive than any of this right now and you know in an emergency situation I imagine most people are going to know what the blot expenditure of golden is for that special moment so this is a little bit lesser importance but it might be a little bit easier to trade I would think so I have five included over here so next you know if someone doesn’t want to have money if they don’t want to have precious metals what are they going to want to have so I’m going to try to capitalize on people’s infatuations or in and cravings so first thing I thought of was to include cigarettes you know they don’t waive anything and a lot of beings are addicted to them I don’t inhale there I’ve never smoked a cigarette in my life so this is actually the first time I purchased some but I want to include these because they’re lightweight and you are familiar with parties are addicted to them so I conceive I might be able to trade these in an emergency situation lastly another thing that beings have an addiction to that I might be able to use for barter is guzzle now I don’t want to have you know these large sized bottles of guzzle they’re acces too heavy you are familiar with I wouldn’t want to be lugging this around in my bug-out Bay so I had to figure out an alternative for that so instead I wanted to go with something tiny and something plastic because the glass is going to be the liquid itself is going to be heavy fairly so I didn’t want to have a glass bottle so what I did is I went to the liquor store and I picked up so these little small-scale bottles of this is makers Markham I might as well get something good so so these are how many ounces then 50 mil amounts of milliliters so I bought I got three of these for my bug-out bag so those are another item that I are potentially use for bartering for trading with and then that the lastly I’m not sure if I’m going to include this was just having some quarters with me I don’t even know if the government has payphones anymore but I imagine some public you know parts of town there might be some so I’m debating whether to have this is our two dollars worth of parts so for this since a lot of this is you know kind of what-if situations I don’t know if I’m going to trade this in these various kinds of pieces I predict I had been able to use this for you know for teething with my with my babe or maybe if I want to have some too but I don’t imagine I’m not going to be imbibe too much so I want to make sure everything is in a particular heavines so let’s placed some of this on the scale and look what we’re looking at so first let’s push to situate all the cash on there you start this over okay so for currency exactly what we we looking at okay so we got about Alana 1.8 ounces all right let’s contribute indicated by the cigarettes these are so light it’s probably not going to increase it too much all right so three stage seven three spot five next let’s lend the maker’s mark okay so 10.10 target four that those are you know moderately ponderous so I imagine it’s going to increase it a little bit I’m going to applied these five silver coppers up there so now we’re looking at right at one pound and I imagine I framed this it’s going to lean it up a couple ounces yeah so one pound one point eight ounce is so I’m not sure maybe I want to not have perhaps I want to go with four and try to keep it up to a pound let’s see yeah so that’s about title at one pound so I’m not sure but these are the basic entries that I’ve kind of been thinking about having for my money and exchange parts as usual if you have any other ideas for what I could do as far as having fund currency you know things for busines I’d like to hear any any of that in the comments so that’s about it that’s what I have so thanks for supporting the channel please feel free to leave productive comments and again this is the money and barter parts for my brand-new bug out bag have a good day
