Peerby: what a great idea

The other day I posted about a board game I had found. 

Another blogger over at Kiwidutch was inspired to tell me about a clever neighbourhood scheme through the website peerby

find what you need

neighbourhood sharing

A simple old idea with a modern twist. Register through the site and you can borrow and lend different things in your district. Free and simple. 

Borrow kitchen items, board games, gardening equipment etc. Brilliant. 

When I signed up I found a lot of people in my neighbourhood are already in the scheme. 

So useful. 

Thanks KiwiDutch! 

Meanwhile do you know any good schemes or sharing sites?

    Great idea. Our old neighborhood had an informal version of this–gardening equipment went back and forth freely among friends–but it could easily have been so much more.

    Our lawnmower used to be used by three households. Pretty handy when most people’s lawns are so small. I may check this out.
