Bringin’ Back the Barter System

Today I made it safely to Denver, Colorado…this may be my final city on this crazy adventure. With just a few weeks to go, I look back at all of the amazing things that have happened and I’m amazed at how generous everybody has been. I’ve managed to get everything a guy could need for an entire year…and MORE! While many of those things were covered by this Groupon or that, sometimes a Groupon for Laser Hair Removal in Washington, DC, actually buys you a flight from Chicago to Phoenix and a three night stay at a Hotel in Vegas. You never know unless you try. I’ve tried. Sure, there have been failures, such as the time a Groupon for burgers in New York City just wasn’t enough for that cab ride.

But there have been hundreds of successful trades for everything from

The clothes on my back...

To my trusty backpack.

Not to mention food...

and shelter were always taken care of.

Transportation wasn't always easy, but there were many rides...


and a flight here and there.

It wasn’t always…


and games...

But things always worked out when they needed to.

It’s time to make some final trades before this journey comes to an end, including a plane ticket home!

In my next blog post I’m going to put up a list of many of the Groupons I have available for trading and some instructions on how all this bartering works.

Thank you all for you help and support for the last 11+ months!

  1. I’am a florist..I love to barter.. I bartered a wedding floral job last year for catering for my sons grad party. It was a win win for both of us !

    I, too, LOVE to barter, and when I had my physical retail stores open, if a customer REALLY wanted something but didn’t have the cash, I’d ask what they had to trade for it, or to make up the difference in the cash they had available. Now, being an online retailer, it isn’t as easy for me, but I still offer it to my customers who ASK. You are so right, all you have to do is TRY, and most often it all works out, to everyone’s benefit! Go Groupawn!
