20 Money Saving Mistakes People Always Make More than Once


6. Being the Barter Sap

Bartering is a new take on an old way of friends helping friends. You scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours, and we all save some cash. Sometimes these agreements end up one sided, and pretty soon you’ve adopted a full grown adult. While cleaning the nasty grout from her shower tiles, you remind yourself that she did promise to help paint your kitchen or babysit your kids. It’s not going to happen–friends (or even relatives) like that will just tap you for more. Barter baiters just promise a fair exchange to get you to do stuff. Being a nice person, you won’t complain–and they count on that as they can smell as sap from a mile off.
