    The other day, I was walking back from the Dining Center on Campus, and my friends took some silverware from the place.

    Now that I think about it, Spoons, forks and knives are some of few things that don't depreciate in value. (especially compared to computers)

    What else can you guys think of? Maybe Ramen Noodles?

    That's not really true, in the past month or so, oil has slipped nearly $10 a barrel.

    Aside from real estate, highly desireable camera lenses in good condition tend to hold their value very well.

    You'll lose some value, but it's not terrible.
