Investing in tangibles is a major component of prepping as well as an inflation hedge. It is referred to as prepping the 8-B's: “Beans-Bullets-Bandaids-Books-Bullion-Batteries-Brotherhood-Being”, as well as the 3-B's “Bean, Bullets, Bandaids” and many other similar variations.

Investing in tangibles is a major component of prepping as well as an inflation hedge. It is referred to as prepping with the mnemonic called the 8-B's: “Beans-Bullets-Bandaids-Books-Bullion-Batteries-Brotherhood-Being”, as well as the 3-B's “Bean, Bullets, Bandaids” and many other similar variations.

Rationale

One should seriously consider the dismal state of the United States economy, massive government debt and government deficit spending, the money printing out of thin air by the Federal Reserve (QE3 - “printing money like it's going out of style, because it IS going out of style”), and the U.S. Debt to GDP ratio.

Financial investments (stocks, Bonds, IRAs, 401ks and others) are practical ways of preparing for retirement as long as modern Systems of support remain intact and functioning more or less as they do today. If, however, these systems (the economy in particular) fail, then investments in tangible, life-sustaining items will provide a much greater return. Even if things don't go badly in the future, investing in tangibles can improve the overall quality of your life. That is why many Preppers-Survivalists say they invest in tangibles for “…if times get tough, or even if then don't”. Such investments should be based on the concept of threat probability and impact scale.

“A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently and die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.” – Robert A. Heinlein

Thus, it seems appropriate for some to get substantially out of the stock market soon, cash in your IRA-401(k) paying the 10% penalty and get reinvested in tangibles like the “Eight B's”:

These eight categories of tangible investments in your immediate possession should be both stored and home cached on your own productive farm land that is in a lightly-populated region (see low population density) with plentiful water and rich topsoil (preferably in one of the free states such as the American Redoubt (Idaho-Montana-Wyoming-Utah-Eastern Oregon or Southwestern Oregon-Eastern Washington, the Tennessee-Kentucky Cumberland Redoubt. Such a survivalist retreat should first and foremost have reliable water sources, preferably a spring, or less preferably a year-round creek-stream-river, a pond, lake and a water well. It should be private, secluded land, near a small town, with the ability for tactical home defense in the case of a total economic collapse or societal collapse in which crime becomes rampant. It should have a minimum of 3 acres with some downward hill slope (contour) for permaculture (see Montana's Paul Wheaton Permies.com forum and the http://RichSoil.com blog) Hugelkultur and swales on contour, with a mix of forested (for firewood, microclimates and food forest), pasture (for micro-livestock), garden land with good topsoil and a water pond or small lake for biodiversity. All of this should be in a rural area; and have potential for alternative energy like solar energy, wind and/or micro hydro electric power.

Time to get invested in these big eight areas NOW before SHTF-TEOTWAWKI-Apocalypse

Tangibles Trump Conceptuals

Modern fiat currencies are generally accepted, but have essentially no backing, unlike hard money. Because fiat currencies are largely a byproduct of interest bearing government bonds or Treasury bonds (debt), modern currencies are destined to inflation. In the long run, inflation dooms fiat currencies to monetary devaluation and economic collapse. The majority of your assets should be invested in productive farm land and other tangibles such as useful hand tools. Only after you have your key logistics squared away, anything extra should be invested in precious metal such as silver and gold.<ref>James Wesley Rawles in the American Redoubt, “The Precepts of Rawlesian Survivalist Philosophy”, Idaho-Montana, The Survival Blog, http://survivalblog.com/precepts Accessed December 10, 2014</ref>

Get out of Dollar-denominated assets, and into tangibles like productive farm land, guns, ammunition, full capacity magazines, and precious metals (mostly silver, followed by gold – see Gold to silver ratio).

Also invest in your own soul-spirit, mind/body with survival skills and preparedness skills.

Food and Water ("Beans")

Beans = Long-Term Storage Food

Read the main articles about Food storage or Water storage

Expect to spend at least the same amount per month as your monthly food bill X 2 (at several thousand dollars) since you need to buy lots of 5 gallon food-grade buckets with color coded screw-on Gamma Lids and 55 gallon blue water barrels (see Emergency Essentials<ref>Emergency Essentials, Utah, http://BePrepared.com) along with Country Living grain mill-grinder, bread maker, food dehydrator, canning supplies, 1 quart Mason jars, 2 camp stoves and lots of propane tanks, etc.

Food Storage

The word “Beans” is often used to describe basic food and water. Invest in 8 to 12 months worth of mostly long term storable dry-goods foodstuffs, and less of canned goods. Squirrel away lots of grain, beans, rice, salt, sugar, honey, coconut oil and olive oil, ghee, tea and instant coffee

Growing your own food

The ability to produce food can be equally or more valuable that food storage, options include permaculture-gardening, raising livestock, developing a food forest and more. Many produced foods will need to be preserved for storage by canning, dehydration, or other methods. Vegetable and fruit seeds can also be stored. Plan on three seasons worth of non-GMO, open-pollinated non-hybrid heirloom vegetable-fruit seeds and cooking herb and medicinal herb seeds.

Water Storage

Water is generally ready to be stored directly from the tap, rain, or a water well. Large, food-grade containers are best for this. A pond, lake, spring, creek or other natural water source can go a long way towards providing long-term water security, but a water filter will likely be necessary for most natural sources. Store 2 to 3 months of water storage in blue food-grade 55 gallon drums with a Big Berkey water filter and replacement water filter inserts.

2. Defense and Security ("Bullets")

This means invest in, support, protect and defend the Second Amendment, your family, your liberty.

Read the main Home security or Firearm articles

Stock up on Ammunition - Find ammo deals:

The term “bullets” is often used to describe the ability to defend one's self or loved ones, usually with firearms and sufficient stored ammunition. Other defense & security measures should also be considered.

Liberals and socialists support “common sense” measures - a “good first step” of the Nanny State. To a citizen-prepper-patriot and to the Bill of Rights, this is “death by a thousand paper cuts”. This video shows why you should invest in firarms and invest in ammunition.

This Second Amendment Foundation video is the formal response to Hollywood's Demand a Plan gun-grabbing propaganda video. The video shows one of the main differences between liberal gun control Nanny states (Blue states) and conservative and/or libertarian Second Amendment-supporting “free states” (Red states). This video shows why we vote with our feet: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UBelF4UddcY

There are many different types of firearms, but a small selection can meet most needs.

Remember that “Two is One, and One is None!” Gun cleaning supplies, holsters, gun cases, gun slings, optics, and basic gun-smithing tools are all necessary accessories for firearms. Also consider high quality knives and force multipliers like security cameras and Comms such as CBs-MURs-Amateur radio-Short wave radios. In-person firearms training, not just Youtube gun videos (Nutnfancy), and gun range time should be priorities as well.


For guns, consider rifles such as AR-15, A-47, M1A Socom II, Ruger 10/22; 12 gauge pump action shotguns such as Mossberg 500, Remington 870, and semi-auto shotguns such as Mossberg 930, Remington 11/87, SR Arms 1216 16-round semi-auto shotgun.

2 AK-AR Personal Defense Rifles with 2000 rounds mil-surplus ammo and 10 full capacity 30 round magazines,

one Ruger 10/22 Takedown Rifle with 2500 rounds 22LR and 5 BX25 25 round full capacity magazines,

one S&W M&P or Glock centerfire handgun with 1000 rounds and 10 full capacity 19 round or 15 round magazines of 9mm or .40S&W,

1 S&W M&P 22 rimfire backup handgun (for affordable weekly practice on same manual of arms/gun ergonomics as your primary handgun 9mm or .40 S&W handgun) with 2500 rounds and 5 full capacity 12 round magazines or for Glock users an Advantage Arms or other 22LR replacement barrel,

two 12 gauge pump shotguns or semi-auto shotguns with 1000 shells of mixed slugs, 00-Buck and 7 birdshot.


3. Band-aids = First-Aid

3.) Band-aids = first-aid and medical supplies such as a first-aid kit and 12 months of vitamins-minerals-nutraceuticals, top 50 common herbs or herb formulas, and over-the-counter medicines and prescription medicines / pharmaceuticals. Invest at least $1,000 to $3,000. Don't forget non-GMO open-pollinated non-hybrid heirloom seeds for the top 10 medicinal herbs that grow in your area.


4. Books = Knowledge and Skills

4.) Books = Knowledge and Skills, so join Amazon.com Prime for free shipping. Read especially King James Version of The Bible or appropriate scriptural texts of your religion. Join the Member Support Brigade (MSB) of Jack Spirko's http://thesurvivalpodcast.com and download and listen to / study more than 1400 hours of amazing content. To start out read M.D. Creekmore's “31 Days to Survival” (http://thesurvivalistblog.net). To go to the next level for serious Patriot Preppers, read and re-read James Wesley RawlesHow to Survive the End of the World as We Know It” (get it on Audible.com as well - http://www.audible.com/pd/ref=sr_1_1?asin=B002ZEQI9Q). Then study Carla Emery's “Encyclopedia of Country Living”. After reading Joel Skousen's Strategic Relocation - North American Guide to Safe Places (also watch his video with Alex Jones' http://www.prisonplanet.com/strategic-relocation-the-film-full-version-hq.html) you may want to vote with your feet and relocate to of the Redoubts in the USA, the American Redoubt (Idaho-Montana-Wyoming - Eastern Oregon - Eastern Washington). Finally study American Red Cross First-Aid book, and get Red Cross certified for CPR and first-aid. See http://www.survivalblog.com/bookshelf.html for a complete list – expect to invest at least $500 to $1000 on books.

6. Batteries = Renewable and Alternative Energy

7. Brotherhood = Family and Community

Brotherhood means your family-support network-survival community-small town is the most important to care for and protect and invest in. It is WHY we prep. You can't go it alone and do a wilderness bugout.

8. Being = Stay Busy, Don't Hurry, Don't Worry, Be Happy

This refers to the psychology of survival. Being means relaxation and suggests the motto of 1. Stay busy, 2. Don't hurry, 3. Don't worry, 4. Be happy. Just be.

In other words: 1. Prepping is a lifestyle, 2. Be patient, 3. Trust life - In God We Trust, 4. just be.

Summary

“A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently and die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.” – Robert A. Heinlein

In summary, invest in tangibles – Be an ant, not a grasshopper. Prepare to make your life better, if times get tough or even if they don't

Food and Water (Beans)

Read the main articles about Food or Water

The word “Beans” is often used to describe basic food and water. Invest in long-term storable food, such as grain, beans, canned food, honey, salt, and olive oil. The ability to produce food can be equally or more valuable, options include gardening, raising livestock, developing a food forest and more. Many produced foods will need to be preserved for storage by canning, dehydration, or other methods. Vegetable and fruit seeds can also be stored.

Water is generally ready to be stored directly from the tap, rain, or a well. Large, food grade containers are best for this. A pond, lake, spring, creek or other natural water source can go a long way towards providing long-term water security, but a water filter will likely be necessary for most natural sources.

Defense & Security (Bullets)

The term “bullets” is often used to describe the ability to defend one's self or loved ones, usually with firearms and sufficient stored ammunition. Other defense & security measures should also be considered.

Liberals and socialists support “common sense” measures - a “good first step” of the Nanny State. To a citizen-prepper-patriot and to the Bill of Rights, this is “death by a thousand paper cuts”. This video shows why you should invest in firarms and invest in ammunition.

First-Aid (Band-aids)

Read main article about First-aid

Band-aids are often used to refer to first-aid supplies and skills such as a first-aid kit, over-the-counter medication, and prescription medication. Medicinal herbs and other natural treatments shouldn't be overlooked either.

Books, Knowledge, and Skills

Read the main articles for books and skills

Books, knowledge, and skills, are all potentially very valuable to have throughout daily life and in the event of a disaster. The internet provides a wealth of free knowledge via blogs, videos, podcasts, and other free resources.

Some popular resources include

Precious metals (Bullion)

Read the main articles about Precious metals and barter

Bullion generally refers to precious metals, but can refer to any hard currency or barter items. Items such as Gold and Silver are the primary forms of “bullion”, but alcohol, fuel, luxury items, and anything else that is hard to come buy during a disaster can be useful. While barter may be the only viable option for trade after an economic collapse, participating in barter today can provide economic advantages over using cash, such as circumventing taxation and getting greater relative value.

Energy (Batteries)

Read the main Energy article

Modern life is greatly improved by modern energy using systems. Transitioning to a life without such system would be incredibly difficult for many people. There are a wide variety of ways to become more prepared or self-sufficient when it comes to meeting your own energy needs. Investing in energy storage, energy production, and energy efficiency can all make life easier after a disaster or better before one.

Energy sources that can be stockpiled to run appliances or generators

Renewable energy sources that you can produce yourself

You can use energy more efficiently

Family and Community (Brotherhood)

Brotherhood can come from family, a support network, the survival community, or your local community. These are very important to care for and protect and invest in. Surviving after a disaster or everyday life is very difficult without some sort of family or community. Humans are social creatures and both mental and physical health suffer in isolation. Additionally, community and family can have far greater skills and resources that any individual can.

Stay Busy, Don't Hurry, Don't Worry, Be Content (Being)

This refers to the psychology of survival.

  • Stay busy - Work is good mental and physical health, idleness is bad for them
  • Don't hurry - Be patient, it can be tempting to get into a hurry and make mistakes
  • Don't worry - Stressing out over things that can not be controlled is unhealthy and doesn't improve things
  • Be Content - Realize that as long as you have what you truly need, that is enough
