Ever been nervous about borrowing that cup of milk from your next door neighbor? You shouldn't be!  According to a new survey conducted by social networking site NextDoor.com, nine out of ten respondent say they are willing to share with their neighbors. 


  • 78% showed a strong willingness to let their neighbor borrow food items. Tools and yard equipment were also among the items people are most likely to share.  
  • Only 15% say they would let their neighbor borrow their car.
  • And 24 % said they would share a babysitter.  


Many respondents also express a willingness to get closer with those next door, but can't seem to figure out how.  About half say they would be likely to participate in garage sales, car pools and group discounts with their neighbors, if there was an easy way to coordinate it.
