In times like these...

We are all trying to save money some how.
Many of us are already on tight budgets and stretching our dollars as far as they will go! I've read lots of posts on how to save money on groceries and gas lately.

Which lead me to thinking...

What are other ways we can save money?
One thing I was thinking about was bartering.

Does anyone barter?
If so,what? and with who?

I often joke that I am going to run around with a sign hanging from my neck that says "Will knit for Food". When my son was a baby, I bartered and traded knit goods for lots of cloth diapers and other baby things. The really good (IMO) cloth diapers are expensive, so this saved me a great deal of money. Plus! I had an excuse to knit.

I found your blog through another frugal blog. There is a barter section on craigslist which you might check out. There are people wanting to trade for all sorts of services!! I don't know if you consider this a barter, but my mom and I are "trading" services. She will work on my landscaping & I am going to paint her bathroom. We are both excited about this deal ;>)

I don't know if this is what you are looking for but I barter for babysitting.
My friend and I swap date nights. We each get one date night a month without having to pay a babysitter. It is nice to know that our children are with adults and that we are not tacking more money onto our evening just to have time with our hubbies
