There is absolutely no reason why everyone in your neighborhood needs their own lawnmower, snowblower or gigantic ladder – why not share the cost with a few close friends? I know I have talked about this stuff before, but I just found this site called NeighborGoods that will help you find those around you with the “stuff” you need to borrow. From tools to books to sporting equipment, the site wants to become the main hub for you and your neighbors to start sharing with each other. You can even rent out your belongings for money, if you are so inclined. But I like the sharing aspect better. I think they are just getting started, but you would be wise to put your name on the site in case others in your area join up too!
