Half a dozen of my neighbors gathered on a residential driveway late on a Sunday morning. We each unloaded our cars, each one full to the brim with clothing, books, household items, and electronics, for what might appear to most as a yard sale. But this was no sale—everything was free! It was our inaugural Buy Nothing Project yard sale. Considering that this was the first such event, the slow stream of neighbors who visited to claim offered items made it a success. Remaining items were taken home or donated to a thrift store if they were deemed worthy of donation.
