Today was our local Crop & Swap meet. I took along organic unsweetened yoghurt, eucalyptus laundry gel, four kombucha cultures, some cheesy bread rolls, and some chai tea mix and I came home with:
GF date cake
Savoury quinoa bites
Sweet tomato and eggplant chutney
Blood plum jam
Rose hip jelly
Food grade bucket (for sauerkraut etc.)
.... and not a cent exchanged hands. Pretty good huh?
The Crop & Swap is the perfect way to shop if you're in the middle of a No Shopping Challenge like we are. I'm starting to think that bartering and swapping would be fantastic any time, not just in the middle of a frugal challenge. How great would it be if people could get rid of their excess produce and gain something back all without spending anything?
I'm off to enjoy an Anzac biscuit. Have a great Saturday!
