Real Deal: Use Barter To Cut Costs

My Fox Philly (TV) - 3/9/2009 by Michelle Buckman
As you know, you can buy or sell just about anything on Ebay or Craigslist. Now there's a way to get what you want and get rid of what you don't without spending any money!

It's a new trend Consumer Reporter Michelle Buckman has been checking, she says, don't buy it, barter it!

There are similar websites out there check out www.swaptree.com where you can trade books, music, dvds and video games. or www.paperbackswap.com where, as the name explains you can trade paperback books. The only thing you have to pay for is shipping and the site allows you to print the postage right from your computer!

Not only is this cheaper and less complicated than Ebay or Craigslist, it's a great way to reuse, repurpose and recycle!
