About living one year in the sharing economy…

Day 26: Old school sharing

Long before anyone came up with the concept sharing economy people where helping each other and sharing things. Today I was at the Red Cross second hand store and found this bureau - for only 50 kr! It's a bargain! And I need it for one of the guest rooms where a future guest wants a little desk.

I also happen to have great neighbours and luckily one of them appeared just as I was thinking about calling a friend to help me transport it home. So my neighbour not only drove the thing home (I don't have a car) but also helped me to carry it the two stairs - and offered me a beer. That's so nice! Sometimes you don't need an app to find people willing to share their things or time with you.
