greeneguy... Most people that say they have a two month supply of food will sadly discover that they have about 3-4 weeks worth of food. Here's a couple of reasons why: 1) Most of us underestimate what we actually consume on a daily basis. 2) If you were in a power outage situation, you will burn more energy doing things manually 3) If it's winter... you'll need more food to heat your body 4) No matter how hard-assed you say you are, I guarantee you will end up sharing some of that with family or close friends 5) (For this one I'm assuming you aren't storing 2 months worth of canned chili and pork and beans) If you've never cooked with freeze-dried, dehydrated, etc food, you are bound to make mistakes and ruin part of it, especially if you are now using a grill or campfires to prepare it.

As far as gold and silver... the smallest coins you can find are your best bet. It's easier to trade a dime sized piece of silver than a dollar sized one. Especially if they only have a small amount to trade.

However, here's the sad reality. If you are in a mid-sized city... about 99% of the people around you will be unprepared. So... if they find out you have food and water, or hear that you are trying to trade silver or gold for items, count on a few deciding to relieve you of that food, water, and coinage. So... if you are anti-gun or your city is... You might want to invest in other weapons. Even a baseball bat will keep one to two people at bay. If there is more than that... well... how you prepare is up to you.
