What to do?

I'll put this up to the community...I've saved a few dollars for my 3 year old daughter which is currently wasting away in a money market. It's obvious that this is not an ideal place to leave the funds. Any ideas on how to allocate these funds? All silver, all gold, gold/silver mix, other. Feedback is appreciated.

I can't and won't tell you

I can't and won't tell you what to do, but I'll tell what I'm doing for my kids. A little cash.. a little silver.

Cash and silver, too. Also

Cash and silver, too.

Also have a custodial account sitting in cash waiting for the market to hit the end of the death spiral so it can ride the next bubble to ∞ and beyond.

Just my 2 cents

Gold is a proven safe-haven and increasingly is becoming money again. And, it isn't prone to wild swings such as silver which is also an industrial metal.

Feedback

Thanks for the responses! I'm going to go with the cash/silver mix. Despite the foolishness of this I have put a little bit away in I-Bonds. Very interested to see what happens to these savings bonds when/if hyperinflation starts.

@Bobbi. Thanks. That's Barnabas - dearly departed - I miss him a bunch.
