Thanks for the advice Demon. If I find you starving on street I'll "buy" you some can food - but you'll have to help clear out all the walkers from the Hardware store. Woodberry ain't gonna build itself you know. *Puts on an eye patch*
Just for that, let's have a Bad Lip Reading of The Walking Dead (to lighten the mood):
I recommend looking into a Roth IRA. A Roth IRA is after-tax investments that can be growing while you stockpile. You can take money out of it any time, too--if it's invested, though, you do have to pay a tax on it. I just took some out of mine to put a down payment on my house.
