I just read a blurb in the NY Times about which is an online directory of services up for barter. 

I LOVE THIS. Barter is the such an old yet currently progressive idea. I barter often with friends and strangers for all sorts of services (cars/dentistry/photography/remodeling/etc/etc). 
My 2 favorite things about bartering services:
1. No tax paid (i.e. no death-funding on the exchange)
2. It leaves me feeling both generous and thankful for the exchange in a way that paying for a good/service just doesn’t do for me. 
So, thanks to all those traders out there. Thanks to Joe Barter, Craigslist, and anyone not afraid to offer up a trade instead of a crisp bill.
