How many times have you needed something, but didn't need to own it?
You know... any physical item that can be used more than once by more than one person.
Wouldn’t it be great if you could borrow books, DVDs, tools, bikes, headphones, golf clubs, steam carpet cleaners, bocce ball sets, iPADS, iPODS, speakers?
You can, thanks to a website called neigh borrow. Like borrowing from your neighbor.
Neighborrow.com’s concept is simple and unique. It’s a site where you post your borrowing request and neighbors can fill it.
Here’s how it works in a nutshell. The site allows people to list things they have or things they need, along with details like location and price per day.
Then their system matches people that need something with the people nearby that have what you want to borrow.
Think of it as eBAY for things you don't keep, but borrow for a small fee.
