Task 12: I’ll Give You…..

Hey Everyone, Its Eric from the 30 Days Gang,

I don’t know if I have ever met anyone who doesn’t like a good bargain. In my lifetime I’ve known some folks that can haggle like no other to get the price down… Either at a garage sale, or buying a car.

But I often think back to times when we were not so dependent on money and our debit cards. Growing up on a farm, I remember my family exchanging items for items… no money involved. During a catastrophic emergency, when we may not have power, certain ways that we normally do business my not be available.

In our neighborhoods, while some may have plenty of supplies, others may have skills that are useful. Bartering for that exchange will be critical to get things done.

DAY 12 Challenge:1-3, or 5 pts    For your Day 12 challenge, we want you to think about what type of items or skills you would be able to offer during a disaster or emergency if paper money was not easily available.

Level Up: 5 pts For today’s level up, we want you to talk with at least two neighbors. Let them know you are taking the 30 Days Challenge and come up with skills or products you could barter between you to help your block together.
