As I just posted, on Elspeth's subject, I'm making robes for my Hairdresser. She'll pay for the fabric but rather than take money for the labour-I'd rather just have a couple free haircuts. And so-I'm employing the barter systerm, just as they used to long ago.
Do you know of a time when you were able to do that? When you did something you were good at in exchange for something other than money? Do you know someone around you well enough that it would work properly? I think the concept only works if the other person can see the same value in what YOU do -&you see the same value in what THEY do. I have a friend who goes to Florida every year-& because she doesn't have a work permit there-she uses the barter system quite freely (& legally) down there. Seems to be a win-win situation for her. I'm not sure I'd be that good at it.
