Save Money by Teaming Up with Your Neighbors

"Our neighborhood has a Yahoo group where people post news and comments about our area (it's really good at getting the word out for a special event or some sort of alert like a theft at someone's home). Some of the people there regularly band together to get group rates on services like sprinkler maintenance, lawncare, snow removal, mulch delivery, and so on. Again, they are using the buying power of the group to get a good (better) rate on a service they want performed."
