LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Borrowing a cup of sugar from a friendly neighbor has now entered the digital age.

NeighborGoods.net is a handy website that allows people to post what goods they can loan out so if someone down the street is in dire need of a power drill, they can simply message their neighbor to borrow it.

Creator Micki Kimmel says the tool has three missions: To save people money by enabling them to borrow instead of buy, to promote sustainable living, and to strengthen real life communities by creating closer relationships between neighbors.

Kimmel herself has made new friends on it and another user found a job after bringing a borrowed item to someone’s office.

But the good neighbor will know the tool has truly “made it” once love strikes.

She says, “My dream story is to hear that someone borrowed a ladder from a neighbor and they fell in love. I know it will happen.”
