Although nearly everyone has heard about the power of Craigslist.org for rentals and jobs, there is also a special section for barter and trade. While for many living in the 21st century, bartering is a lost art, Craigslists and other websites are bringing it back to life by allowing you to post what you have in exchange for what you need. And when you live in funky little Austin the posts are well….weird.
And if you are not in the mood to give up the prized MacBook for Texas-sized hair there are plenty of other more useful trade suggestions, including Wii games, movies, even culinary services for free facials by a licensed professional. And as crazy as it might seem put your stuff up there, everyone has stuff they want to get rid of and EVERYONE is trying to save money! Consider trading homes for your next vacation and have a chick flick moment a-la- The Holiday when you are planning you next vacation! It shouldn’t be hard since EVERYONE wants to be in Austin.
