Default Money Storage

Any recommendations on the proper ways to store money for long-term holding to avoid moisture and other issues with it.

Ziploc + Mason jar + (optional) Ammo can = pretty cheap way to store it.

This has been tried and proven by many people.

I know you have a vac sealer.... Seal some up and then store the "bricks" in a couple of ziplocs. OR you could get the jar sealers and store in mason jars. (just remember to make a map when you bury 'em in the backyard )

I would just acquire a large treasure chest.

I would change your money into silver/gold, then you wouldnt have to worry about it. Storing FRN's seems like a bad idea, not matter how you 'stack' it.
Just mho.

Exactly.
Then bury it.
If the police or anybody wants to get in a safe, they will. Banks are out of the question. Trust no one. Burying it seems feasible.

Drill a hole a little deeper than the width of a dollar in the top of a door in your house, roll the bills up and put them in it. Grandpa would be rolling over in his grave if ha knew I shared this.

I think you kinda missed out on the best time to buy. 10 years ago the evangelical Christians preached getting out of debt completely and buying gold coins. It was cheap then. Does anyone see a bubble coming?

Deal only in cash. Do not, I repeat, do not trust the banks. Government take over of all banks in the near future. You will only be allowed a small withdrawal per 24hr. period. Keep paper $ right now. Trying to deal in gold or silver will draw unwanted attention. Feel sure the government will be calling in all known gold & silver held by citizens before too long. I am not paranoid just careful.
