Excuse Me, Do you Have A Twenty-Foot Ladder?

How often do we decide that we need something, and we go out and buy it, even though we are really only going to use it once or twice a year? Maybe only once or twice ever. And then we have to find somewhere to store it. 

This is probably part of the reason our houses, our closets, and our garages are getting bigger and bigger.

If you have something that's not getting used, it's going to waste.

We could rent those once-a-year tools/items. Or we could walk over to the neighbor's house and ask if they have one we could borrow. You might get to know them. You might find out they're going through a difficult time, and there's something you can do to help them. You might make a friend.

I think most people are pretty happy to lend something to a neighbor. If they aren't, I guess you'll figure out not to ask that neighbor.

Always return things promptly and in better condition than when you got them.

Don't borrow things too often. That is no way to make friends.

If your neighbor has to come over and ask for his item back, your borrowing privileges will be revoked.

Go forth and meet thy neighbors.
