One of the ways I planned to save money this year  is through bartering.  I did have to swallow my pride, but I asked my son’s dance teacher this week if there was any financial aid available or if there was any service I could swap with her in exchange for a discount on his dance tuition.

She was very open to the idea and said if I was willing to clean the studio one day a month, he could dance for free!  That is a $48 savings a month.  I guess I am not the first to ask; she said some older girls who take hundreds of dollars worth of classes a month clean the studio several times a month to help offset their tuition.

I will start cleaning the studio and receiving free dance tuition next month.  Yeah!  That is a savings of $48 a month, or $576 a year.
