They say a Penny Saved is a Penny Earned. So I’m going to try to save a million pennies by bartering website design work for help around the house. We’ll see how it goes.

Was Not Successful Before

I tried this before by simply responding to ads in Craigslist. This devolved because there are a million awful website designers out there trying to do the same thing. Forget them. I’ve got a better idea.

How I will be successful now

That’s easy. I will be successful through the game of 10!

I am going to approach 10 specific disciplines that I need help with:

  1. Interior Painting
  2. Exterior House Painting
  3. Tree Cutting
  4. Drainage
  5. Lawn Care – actually, just get grass growing at all!
  6. Brush Clearing
  7. Cabinets
  8. Drywall
  9. Electrical Lighting

Let’s see how I do. I’ll post the results as they happen. When I am successful (and by that I mean reach my Special Number), I’ll post my entire process.

Have you ever used Craiglist to barter? How did it go?
