Barter

Bartering is trading goods and services without the exchange of money.  Popular before the advent of coin and paper currency, bartering was the way people got anything they needed, but didn’t produce themselves.

Bartering has made a resurgence as a “green” way to procure goods because it prevents the environmental damage that results from producing new goods and also prevents items from being dumped in landfills.

I am a supporter of bartering, so I created this page to share the items I currently need and the goods/services I am willing to trade in exchange for them.  Take a look and let me know if you want to trade!  If you’re interested, email me (homesteadingdaughter@gmail.com).
