Time and Time Again

I just read this article about time banks and had to share. This concept really resonated in me—just seems right, so obvious, so easy.

Time banking is basically good ol' bartering—trading goods or services. It is something I have fantasized about, but I never knew there were organized groups of time traders. We have so much to offer, and could benefit from so many of the folks in our area. What better way to build community, save money, support local businesses and organizations?

So I'm off! ...to look into these time-based currencies a little more. I'm also off to the beach for a few days away. I'll be back!

In the mean time, check out the Onion River Exchange and visit TimeBanks.org to learn more.
