Barter your unused stuff for other stuff - free!

Here's a website I came across today, that is perfect for this blog. U-Exchange is a website where you can register, post what you have to trade, and what you want to trade it for. It also allows you to search other members and what they have to to trade, and what they want to trade for. They have it set-up for the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom. You can then break it down further by state.

Have a fish tank you want to get can swap it for a side-by-side refrigerator in Danville, VA. Got a heavy duty air compressor just lying around? Trade it for a Toyota Land Cruiser, in Berrett, MD. In Orange County, CA, you could trade a 14k gold watch for a laptop. The list is endless...check it out, you might be surprised at what you see, and who knows, maybe you can get rid of some of that stuff you have packed away or sitting around, and trade it for something you really need. Bartering is as old as time, and conjures up images of ancient civilizations, and crowded markets and bazaars, where customers and vendors haggle back and forth over price or products. U-exchange brings bartering into the 21st century, and into your living room. Take a few minutes to check it out, and see what kind of money you can save by swapping something you no longer need or use. Think of it this way, you paid for one item once, and more likely than not, got your use out of it. Now you can trade it for something else, and not have to pay extra money. Your original money that bought your first item, has basically doubled, as you are getting a different item. It's a great way to save and keep money in your wallet, and SAVING MONEY is MAKING MONEY!!

Steve this is a great blog. Thanks for the tips. Yours is the first exchange I have gotten from U-Exchange and I really needed it. I have been bartering recently and have decluttered my house because of it. I have also given away plenty of items for nothing in return. I hope to continue to do this. I will continue to read and comment on your site. Thanks again.
