don't mind me. I am finding things around the net that I want to ponder and remember, so I'm putting them here.

Land to grow food or as a woodlot for your woodstove
Tools and well composted raised beds for growing more of your own food
New roof (preferably metal that will last 100 years)
Rainwater catchment barrels
Plastic conduit for plumbing
New construction (addition, remodel, etc)
You can add to the list but the idea is that all of these things could be going up double digit percent while the dollar and investments drop in value. Better to purchase needed essentials now than to invest in declining assets during an inflationary period.
