No matter how prepared we are, in a longer-term survival situation, eventually, everyone will run out of stuff they need to survive or to make their survival lives more livable.
When that happens, your options are few unless you are in a position to barter.
Bartering is trading a good or service for another good or service and traditionally, does not include any exchange of currency.
In fact, if the survival situation is dire enough the goods or services you want to barter may hold more value than traditional fiat currency.
If you are a tradesman, your services are likely to be in high demand and you will be able to easily get what you want or need.
For the rest of us, however, bartering goods is the best method to get our hands on what we want or need.
