Bartering services is a great way to save money on auto and home maintenance, clothing alterations, gardening help, lawn care. Any service can be bartered. You provide your services (sewing, typing, organizing, or any of those listed above)in return for needed services. Same concept for unwanted items or a product you may sell.

This is a good business promotion strategy as well. There's no better advertising than word of mouth. Providing services through this method could, consequently, result in some good referrals.
