Love the profile pic Don. You're looking great!

Remember, nobody can go back to the very beginning and make a brand new start, but anyone can start here and make a brand new end.

There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results."

That is one of the potentially SUPER benefits of borrowing...one can get to really KNOW neighbors and extend one's support network.

Remember back in the day when neighbors were really *NEIGHBORS*...?

This might be one way to reclaim that for ourselves.

I've been doing some of that with my neighbors and we've become a much closer knit neighborhood. Thanks for posting all of those links.

Still looking for work....

Kim Komando recently shared a video tip about saving money through borrowing and lending items rather than buying something you might only use a few times:

www.tvkim.com/watch/361/kim-on-koman

save-money-with-sites-that-let-you-bR>orrow-all-sorts-of-things


She gives tips on using some of the bartering, lending sites that are out there. Here are a few of the ones she mentioned:

www.sharesomesugar.com
www.thingloop.com
www.neighborgoods.com
www.borrowingcircle.com
www.neighborrow.com

For those of you without employment, I'm sure you might appreciate any cost-savings you can find! You can even EARN money by lending items out!

Check it out!
