Ever wish you could trade your plumber for fixing your sink?  Or offer to swap your old laptop for a used TV?  Well that is kinda the idea behind the Milwaukee Time Exchange.

Milwaukee Area Time Exchange is a network of neighbors building safe and vibrant communities through the exchange of our greatest natural resources: our time, skills and spirit. One hour of service equals one time dollar, exchangeable for member services.

On Saturday, November 13th 2010, the Milwaukee Area Time Exchange will celebrate its first year in collaboration with the Grand Opening of the Wright Street Resource Center. With this event the Milwaukee Area Time Exchange celebrates its first year of helping neighbors help themselves through exchanging time, knowledge and skills.
