The problem with socks is that one out of every pair has this propensity to go walkabout.
I find that if I pair up the dirty socks before they go in the washer, and then again as they go into the dryer, my socks stay much more local
Thought provoking idea, inflation-proofing.
Property taxes have me stumped - what ideas do you all have there? Can't pre-buy...guess it's best to live somewhere with relatively low property tax burden and/or income- or age-based exclusions or annual increase caps.
What other categories seem particularly troublesome to you all?
For hyper-inflation, owning industrial commodities or productive assets may be the best bet (including agricultural assets and real estate). Or living on a self-sustaining old school farm.
For garden-variety inflation, I can think of mild hedges for utilities (local generation, net-zero house), food (garden with seed stock, chickens, fish pond), healthcare (stay healthy and select care options as though it were the 19th century), auto fuel (walk or bicycle)...most other consumer goods I could just make do , use it up, wear it out or do without.
