Trading and sharing
Every spring I think I should go and buy the rototiller I have always wanted. The rear tine model would be great! I could do the garden once a year and then store my $750 behemoth in the garage. But what if, instead, I bought one with four neighbors who also used a rototiller once a year?
Sharing and trading isn’t my first thought on purchases but what a sustainable action! Years ago I bought a snow blower with my neighbor, but quickly learned we both wanted to use it the moment the snow stopped. A rototiller we could work around.
Makes you think of the stuff we consume that could be traded or shared. It might even make you buy the best so it would last longer. I could share
- Rototiller (better yet just rent one or hire it done)
- Air compressor
- Floor buffer
- Reciprocating saw
- Belt sander
- Wallpaper steamer
- Fertilizer spreader
- Post hole digger
What could you share that you own or have thought about buying? I challenge you to let me know… let’s see if we can come up with a list of 100 things! Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
