Should I take money out swap money on paypal into £s etc?
Any other suggestions other than hibernate for the next 4 years? 😭

Dollars will be cheap if you fancy a long term investment!

I used to think you (preppers) were all unhinged......

I'd be interested in knowing a bit more about this too. I know that we aren't spending at the moment - apart from essentials and extra stocks for the pantry which I figure will be more valuable than cash if there are shortages.

LEM I used to think that about Preppers in general until the last couple of years now I'm heavily concerned and committed.

No we are just prescient wink

Right. I'd stock up on staples (rice, flour, sugar etc) and more expensive dried spices. Chocolate. Look at making your house as energy efficient as possible. Same with your car. Consider a hybrid if you're changing cars. Fix your mortgage rate. Buy dollars if it plunges. Review your energy suppliers and your finances. Buy gold. I cashed out my S&S portfolio. Waiting to see what happens.

We are renting and saving for a deposit, actually starting to look at houses now so I'm not sure if it best to wait and see if there is a horrible crash or just take the plunge. Based in a cheap area of the Midlands so not worried about skyrocketing SE house prices.

Other than our deposit we have very limited savings and it would be no good to us in gold surely?

My own (and very personal) view is that you should prepare but not be paralysed into inactivity like a rabbit in car headlights. You have to live life still.

Trump winning does not have anything to do with your hobby of stocking up on longlife food. The US has shifted back to the right after eight years on the left. Buy shares in Big Pharma if you want to do something useful for your family.
