Green on a Budget: Your Shovel is my Shovel

Share the loveThe holidays can strain any budget. As you prepare for the season of feasting and gift-giving, this week's tips will help you maintain your green standards without spending a fortune.

Tip #3: Swap and share.

If your neighbor has a shiny new toolbox, why would you need one too? Rather than "keeping up with the Joneses," many people are opting for opportunities to pool and share resources. By planning clothing exchanges, crop swaps, and tool-lending libraries, you'll save money, reduce waste, and build a stronger community.

Tell us: How do you share with friends?
