    Bartering is great, it keeps the powers that be out of the loop for both parties, as far as I'm aware legally too.

    I cant think of any I have done yet off the top of my head, but I have had a thought of asking the local butcher to give me a load of meat in exchange for a clean.

    Not sure about the legal side over there Tolish, but pretty sure you have to declare it here on a tax return.

    I've bartered in the past for meat and sign writing on the car.
