Bartering for fun & survival
https://thesurvivalmom.com/bartering-for-fun-survival/

If our economy ever does collapse and the dollars we’ve saved become worthless, one thing is for sure:  a system of bartering will emerge, along with a black market.  As you stock up on food and other goods, you may have had the thought, “This would be good for bartering.”  Blogger LP, over at Survival Plan Blog, has an interesting take on the idea of bartering and barter goods.

One of his main points is to make sure that you first are stocked up with the basics for yourself and your family before worrying about adding items for barter.  He says, ...   ---CONTINUED at LINK---

Bartering 101
https://blog.foodinsurance.com/bartering-101/

Before the advent of paper money bartering or trading was the way people got what they needed. Farmers often specialized in certain crops or livestock. The chicken farmer might trade 3 chickens with the wheat farmer to get 10 lbs of wheat to make some bread to feed his family.  Similarly, if you have 100 cans of beans but no can opener you are going to need to trade a few of those cans with someone that has a can opener. You might trade a few more cans to someone with a lighter or stove so that you can cook those beans. The value of the item will depend on the needs others and how easy said item is to come by. In other words supply and demand. If you are the only one on the block with sugar and everyone wants some you can set the price as you see fit.   ---CONTINUED---

Bartering in an Emergency
https://www.thereadystore.com/food-storage/17488/bartering-in-an-emergency/

Long before cold hard cash became the name of the game, bartering was the norm. Trading goods and services was commonplace in every town. Many cities had a trading post where farmers would bring their goods to barter for things they might need, but couldn't produce themselves. Many travelers would use these locations to stock up before heading out West. It was common to trade the family's silver for enough food to make the journey.  There have even been modern cases of individuals using eBay to trade a paperclip for a series of items ending in an actual house!   ---CONTINUED---

16 SHTF Barter Items to Stockpile
http://www.shtfplan.com/emergency-preparedness/16-shtf-barter-items-to-stockpile_03152012

Every good survivalist has a stockpile of things he or she recognizes their family may need to survive a natural or man-made disaster. However, many people forget the value of maintaining a barter store as well.

If things hit the fan, particularly in an economic collapse where the dollar is nearly worthless, a number of non-monetary goods will be more valuable than a fistful of dollar bills. ---CONTINUED---
