Argentina and Greece both have barter systems, started by their citizens, as an answer to surviving their economic collapses.

What items do you have stockpiled that would benefit you in a barter society?

A few items I've collected include:

matches
lighters
candles
first aid supplies (Bandaids, Neosporin, rubbing alcohol, etc.)
OTC medicines
feminine products
toiletries (soap, shampoo, etc.)
laundry detergent
household cleaners

A few items on my wish list:

liquor (We don't drink, but I read about a Nat'l. Guardsman, after Katrina, traded an entire box of MRE's for a bottle of whiskey. He just went back and got a replacement box...no questions asked.)

cigarettes (We don't smoke, but this should be self explanatory.)

extra ammo in variety of calibers

I don't know that I would trade my ammo to anyone for anything honestly one round could get me more food shot the my barrel than I think I could get in a trade
