services-skills-for-barter-post-collapse

Previously we asked for your input regarding SERVICES that you might consider to be valuable for barter or trade in a post-collapse or SHTF world.

Based on your input of services, I’ve condensed them into a list so that you can participate in a poll to vote for those which you believe will be the most valuable for barter…

UPDATE: Poll Results Are In…


 
Note: No doubt that there are many additional logical and practical additions that could be made to the following list, however these are the immediate services (skills) that you came up with for now…

After more than 4,000 votes from more than 300 people, Here’s the list of most valuable services for barter after a collapse or SHTF.
