I’ve been reading lately about the comeback that bartering is making. As people continue to struggle, they are using swapping as an alternative to cash. It is also a way to recycle your old stuff. I’ve already done freecycle and love it.
I have a few items I was planning to put in a garage sale, so I’ve decided to try bartering them instead. I might try to register at swaptree.com to take it a step further. I’m starting out on craigslist.com. I just sent an email offering to barter a Shark steam mop for a mountain bike. Wish me luck!
