Bartering?

Has anyone ever traded anything they could no longer use? I was just watching a show about that very subject and thought it was neat. I have never traded anything,usually I sell it if I can no longer use something that is still usable. I think it would be cool to trade though!

 I saw that show too :)  and thought it was cool.  I have not done it, only with my mother and an aunt and usually clothes. Craigslist has a barter section and i put a dvd camcorder, but no replies yet.  I think it would be something good to do, specially because there is no money involved.

Actually I did this morning.. took some clothes to the consignment shop and they told me I had store credit from previous items that had sold.. so I bought a dress shirt with the tags still on it for my husband... and 2 long sleeve shirts for my older son for the fall (which were on clearance since they were out of season) ... oh and they were from the gap and a pair of shorts for my other son that he can wear this summer... and didnt spend a penny... yea.. wait a minute... and nothing for me... BOOOOOOO... oh well!  :)  I love a good deal!  And all things the family can use without spending.  Now Im more motivated to go through our closets and get rid of things we just dont wear... well, I guess I have my project for the day! or the rest of the week more like it!
