Key factor disturbing effective functioning of a barter system.

Barter systems are now well known in crisis-affected countries. However, barter systems do not always work well....

This post has been moved to:

Neighbourhood barter system. Social cooperation and saving money.

Beautiful Russian horses.

My blogging does not only include writing about money. There a lot of things I am interested in and I would like to recommend. Below you can see beautiful horses photographed during Jacek's (Polish blogger and journalist) trip to Russia a few years ago.

My famous piggy-bank.

Here you can see my famous moneybox. I collect all my coppers and coins from my bulging wallet. It makes my life easier and it makes my money-saving comfortable.

I can 'utilize' all the collected coins in a supermarket at the automated cash point or in some shops where they are willing to take coppers.

There are political plans in Poland to withdraw coppers, as they do not represent a significant value and 'cause' problems to banks.

I don't mind keeping them. I prefer 'real' money to plastic.

Cutting tubes.

As I have written many times before I am convinced that manufacturers create product packaging and tubes in a way that makes it impossible for us to use everything. Clever? Perhaps, but I don't like it... so I often cut tubes.

Believe or not, but in the "empty" tube shown above there still was enough mustard for a nice single meal. Here the "money saving" tip will not bring you significant benefits, but imagine that you can do that with expensive cosmetics.

Nice idea, isn't it?

Windowsill mini-garden.

I've reused the old pot with lemon balm roots (Melissa officinalis), cardamine seeds and I've put an onion inside. An onion with leaves becomes bitter, however leaves alone are quite tasty.

Why not? Lemon balm is not cheap, trying to revive it saves money :) The rest of herbs have been planted just for fun (and good sandwiches, finally).

Quite often we have two or three windowsill gardens, usually with some fresh herbs.

Planning my holidays.

The shot from the castle in Palma.
I love this city!

I would like to spend next holiday at the Baltic sea (in fact I am even considering buying a flat at the Baltic sea) however my wife wants Spain. She's right as the weather is more predictable, prices are about the same. We have chosen Alcudia in Spain, Majorca (relatively easy to get there as we live quite close to the Dresden airport with nice connections).

Once I have spent my winter holidays nearby, but I do not quite like a temperature set in the Mediterranean in summer. Winter in Spain is OK for me, summer, hmm... We'll think about it.

Here I am going to translate as much as possible from my popular Polish blog.
