Cash is king, and I mean actual cash.

I know, you are tired of hearing me harp on about cash reserves. You have heard me say a million times it is more important to cover income vs. expenses when building your cash reserves. I am not talking about that. What I am concerned about is actual paper money in your house.

Hurricane season is a mere 5 weeks away, now is the time to start planning. Many people focus on having enough emergency food, batteries, and water, but what about cash? Here is something to think about; let’s say the power is knocked out, the local gas station is running on a generator and you need something. There is a good chance the internet is also down so paying with an app is not a choice. Neither is using a credit card due to the lack of power. If you have paper money, you can get what you want from that store.

Put your paper crown on and have some paper money stashed in a safe place in your home.
