What is Bartering?

Hey there everyone and welcome to our new blog, backyard barter. We’ll be bringing you all kinds of exciting stuff in the near future.

We love to barter, we also love great deals and bargains. Oh by the way, that isn’t us in the picture… it’s just a cool photo of some old school backyard barterers!

So what is bartering exactly?

Wikipedia says this:

Barter is a system of exchange where goods or services are directly exchanged for other goods or services without using a medium of exchange, such as money.

Bartering is what we all used to do before money exists. A lot of people think it’s to do with just getting a lower price on what you want to purchase, but that’s not it. Watch this video for more info.
