    oh wow - cool graphic. Very interesting stuff. I had a savings bond a really long time ago - I wish I wouldn't have cashed it in, I would have been curious to see what it would have turned into now. Reply

    I have a friend that has been buying gold for a long time. I am not really into it. I think that if I would have put a bunch of money in coffee cans in my backyard about 5 years ago I would be better off right now. The stock market has been quite the roller coaster. Reply

    Well, that's a pretty brilliant way of investing money... I might talk to hubby about this someday. Thank you for the post. :) I wonder, though, if this is because of inflation that the number is that high... what I mean is, is that 100 dollars equal to the 1700 in the 70s? Also, the small print says it doesn't guarantee future results. I'm not certain I'm comfortable with a no guarantees way of investing. Reply

    I am too chicken to invest in gold, silver or other precious metals. They are too volatile for my blood especially with gold still near its highest peak ever Reply

    I am so bad about this. I am clueless when it comes to investing. My parents never saved for the future so unfortunately I don't know how. I wish my husband was more money saavy but he's not. Guess it's time to learn. Reply

    Ugh, We hardly ever think about this which sucks. We aren't savers either lol Reply

    Interesting concept! Probably a foolproof way of investing! Reply

    We invest in a diversified portfolio of stocks, bonds, and yes, commodities like gold and silver. Diversification is key; you never want to put all of your eggs in one basket. Reply
