My Bartering For The Week

I LOVE bartering! Some of you folks know that already about me. 🙂 Who wouldn’t love to barter instead of paying cash! I realize there are many people that are intimidated by even the thought of asking another person if they would like to trade their fresh vegetables for a jar of homemade jam. Do … Continue Reading
