Bartering in goods and services is making a comeback during the economic downturn.
"I love barter and my kids love it. The first year barter was a little scary for me, thinking that it was not working out. I wasn't good at it like I am now. I didn't know all the avenues - how to spend it. Into my second year I was getting better and better at it, and now we spend faster than I can make it."
