Seems to have good info, and has some downloads at the bottom of the page.
Not sure if you have to sign up for anything as I did not get that far.
Worth checking out.

Bartering is going to happen as a way of life. The destruction of the dollar is just a matter of time. Even the government had came up with scenarios to try and figure out what will happen when it does, and how to prepare for it.
China, the main holder of our debt, is buying gold, copper, oil and other such items like crazy to try and be in a good position when it does.
If a disaster does not happen before then, I predict an economy worse than the 1930s. Mainly because there is a LOT more people.
Back then you could hunt, fish and grow crops to help out. Today, it would be total chaos.
When will it happen,,, it's already started,, look for the government to start taxing everything to try and hold it off,, but it's just a matter of time.

Medical supplies, food, batteries, booze, tarps, rope will all be good items to have extras of. How about some more ideas for a bartering list for the aftertimes.

After a few years, people will lose glasses, break them, eyesight will get worse.. cheap dollar store reading glasses in all strengths will be a great item, as will sunglasses with bifocals.

Good article from Natural News..

Barter will become the new economy after the global financial collapse, so make sure you have plenty of these items

http://www.naturalnews.com/2017-05-13-barter-will-become-the-new-economy-after-the-global-financial-collapse-so-make-sure-you-have-plenty-of-these-items.html

Natural News) Following the global collapse of the world’s financial system, which no one knows when will happen but many believe is inevitable given the massive debt held by the world’s biggest economies, the concept of “money” will change virtually overnight.

Like post-World War I Germany, when hyperinflation made the currency – the mark – so devalued and worthless that German waiters in restaurants had to climb on tables to announce new menu prices every 30 minutes, the world’s currencies will similarly collapse, since they are all based on the U.S. dollar.

Five years ago an MIT study noted that an earlier analysis predicting a “global economic collapse” by 2030 had not changed and was “still on track” to occur. But the key is the dollar.

But our needs won’t change. We’ll still need food, water, shelter, clothing, personal hygiene items, ammunition, firearms, and other things in order to carry on with our lives as best we can. And though money might be obsolete, the things we need to live will still retain value.

How will we obtain them? Through a barter system. (Related: These 10 Items Are Cheap Now But They Will Be Invaluable After SHTF.)

Barter is a system of exchange where goods or services are exchanged for other goods and services. If you have something of value – even a skill – you can use it to trade for something you need that someone else has.
