Barter When Possible
My husband and I save hundreds of dollars every year by bartering. We farm, and have quite a few wooded acres. Several years ago, a tornado came through and took out a lot of trees and more large limbs. Since then we have had someone cut and split the wood, and we get a part of it. We provide the wood, they provide the labor.
We do the same with hunting land. People hunt on our land and split the meat with us. In the past, I have also provided sewing in exchange for music lessons, and traded childcare with another mom.
