If only I had a...
You need a 20-foot ladder to paint your gutter, a jogging stroller while you work off baby weight, or a projector for outdoor-movie-night.
Why drop a $100 on something you'll only use briefly, when you can borrow or rent it instead?
Unlike FreeCycle, the great giveaway site, NeighborGoods is all about the share:
- Sign up with your zip or connect with Facebook Connect
- List stuff you're willing to lend, rent or sell on the cheap (a cordless drill, baby shoes, lawnmower, etc.).
- NeighborGoods connects you with folks nearby who have what you need

(Note that they just launched a month ago, so there might not be a lot in your area—yet. Luckily, it's easy to invite friends to join.)
