We (wife and I)invested our money in becoming debt free. We did this rather than buying precious metals. The peace of mind this has brought is priceless.
We have not had credit cards since 1985. We made do and did without and now own three trucks and one car, all paid for. The house and land, all paid for. Horse trailer w/living quarters (cowboy RV) - paid for. We have no loans of any kind.
We grow our food - vegetable plot and chickens. We've got a deer's worth of meat in the freezer. She just finished processing 11 hens and roosters and they are in the freezer. Organic eggs still warm from the hen are good eating, no hormones or antibiotics.
I could say more, but instead I'll say this - gold and silver may have their place if you are secure in all other areas, but if you're not, gold and silver are darned hard to eat.

R-P Daddy, you put things into perfect perspective. Then again, being debt free is a part of prepping, and we should all be striving to that goal.
We have never had an excess of money. But early on we decided to live frugally and forgo the material comforts in exchange for long range goals.
I'll admit, I wanted toys like dirt bikes and a hotrod Mustang and a big honkin' flatscreen w/surround sound to watch NASCAR, but my wife (God Bless her) demanded we stay focused.
My only vice is firearms. But mine were bought second hand with what I considered "found money" - during the time when the economy was great I recieved quarterly profit sharing bonuses. And my wife had no problem with me claiming them for myself.
And if I want to rationalize I could kid myself into believing my guns were bought to sell for a profit in our old age. :mrgreen:
