I was cashing a check from a client the other day and the gal at the pay window at the bank ask if I would like to open an account. You know the typical upsale of a standard transaction.
I told her that it wouldn't be fair to the bank. She said what do you mean. I then explained that I put what ever a person might put in a savings account each week and put that into one of these 1/10th OZ gold coins.
These run about $145 to $150 right now. Affordable for most working people to put at least one of them back per month. Then when the value of the dollar drops like a rock off a cliff you can convert one of these to the current value in the depreciated federal reserve notes.
These will likely hold their current value as the FRN goes off the cliff. When bread cost $10 a loaf you will be more able to afford it.

I've thought a bit about the land issue, and ask myself this...
If, in the SHTF, situation X scenario, sure, lots of land is great. But wouldn't you expect if the gov were to have a list of individuals owning relatively large parcels of land, they would be the first target?
