I have been thinking a lot about starting a business. For my idea, this is the best time. Why not help other people survive the recession. Now, you may be thinking how. So let's brainstorm. Coupon Sites, and ways to save money are two. They are seen so much though. Not that those aren't great, I was looking for more unique ideas. I came up with the following ideas. A Bartering Site. Everyone has items, and needs items. This would be great for a certain area. I can guarentee there will be members. College book trade There are still college kids and they need books. I know I have a few lying around. I would gladly list them to trade for ones I need. Those are two that I am not going to use... hehe The one I am will be my little secret.
