Don't Forget to Barter
I know a lot of people are trying to save money in these uncertain economic times - but you can still get the things you want by bartering. Craigslist has had a 100% increase in traffic on its barter boards lately, and there are a lot of other online sites you can use to find people to trade with, if you can't find someone locally.
I just traded some cloth diapers for a snazzy MP4 player and both of us are very happy about it. All it cost us was the postage.
Have you bartered anything lately? Do you want to?
