If only we could all learn to share...
On this week's Realgoodwords we're learning how to share our toys with others. No really. Janelle Orsi is the co-author of the new book "Sharing Solution: How to Save Money, Simplify Your Life and Save Money". Janelle is a lawyer and in the book she offers ideas on how we can share with our neighbors, friends and families in all kinds of ways. Like:
-share tools....lawnmowers, saws, rototillers, washer & dryer, exercise equipment, you name it.
-share food.... agree to grow certain things and then trade with your community. Start a potluck club. Make lunch together at your workplace.
-share services....like babysitting - nannies, dog walkers
On the Sharing Solutions blog they talk about a way you can share your stuff online. See SwapTree for more information.
