    I had a brainstorm that even my husband and son like. I will post a sign at the mailbox junction and local burger joints.

    (we live in small town of 3,700)

    "FRESH EGGS $2.00 a dozen or will trade 2 dozen eggs for each of your unwanted usuable movies/videos"

    WOW! This will even work for neighbors that expect a freebie. You can take unwanted movies, increase your collection and use them for trade later.

    I hope this will work. any comments? [​IMG]

    I'm all for the Barter method. In the times we are in now.... bartering is the way to go....and look at the "gold" you have to offer in trade.....Great Idea!!! [​IMG]

    When the dollar has become completely worthless, we'll all be bartering.

    I sell eggs to my neighbor all winter, in summer we trade organic produce for the eggs - she has already let me know they are expanding the garden this year [​IMG] I can't wait.

    eta - hubby could have told me they were - he's the one who drove over to plow their garden area [​IMG] men don't always pay attention to such things, I guess. btw - he plowed the garden in exchange for haying off an acre of their land that the guy can't keep mowed.

    I love bartering, myself. I expect to expand on it a bit this year - we're newer here, so still getting adjusted to the area.

    My neighbor's dad buys eggs off me, too .... I wonder what he has to barter..... [​IMG]
