Back in Ames, there was a group of young women living together on Welch Avenue, who did something very cool with their basement. They offered it as a space for people to "share all things common," as in Acts 2:44. If there was anything you weren't using, you put it there; and if you wanted anything that was there, it was yours for the asking. There were clothes, furniture, kitchen utensils, construction equipment... just about anything, all kept clean and tidy and well organized.

It was all very low-key, casual, and unofficial, which is probably why it worked so well.  Smiley

That sounds pretty cool! I was in a four-plex where we used the basement as storage space for ourselves and often for kids that were away on summer trips. Living in the four-plex with ladies I knew was great because if one of us needed like an extra egg or to use someone's vacuum or plunger, we could just go across the hall or up/down stairs. That place was also the spot of many random dance-parties Smiley Knowing how to really help someone was a valuable lesson to learn there!
