"The Community Cabinet"
“A few years ago I had a few things I didn’t need anymore: a small TV cabinet, some clothes, and a couple knick knacks. I pulled the cabinet out to the curb, loaded it up with my stuff, and threw a ‘Free’ sign on it all.
A few hours later, I checked to see what was taken. To my surprise, all of my stuff (except the cabinet) had been taken, and new stuff, someone else’s stuff, had been put in the cabinet!
I was a bit dumbfounded, but inspired!
That evening, I dug a small hole in my front yard, as close to the sidewalk as I could, and buried the TV cabinet in place. I painted it a bright yellow and added a whiteboard to the side. I called it The Community Cabinet, and encouraged anyone to take what they wanted and leave things they no longer needed.
It was a hit. Within a week, I had seen everything cycle through that little space: computers, canned food, garden veggies, books, pipe fittings, clothes, knick knacks, and more! Even the space next to and in front of the cabinet was stocked with stuff like lamps, toaster ovens, surfboards, and bikes!
It’s been wonderful over the years watching people use The Community Cabinet. It’s become well known in the community and even a destination for many on their evening walks. It provides me with a consistent source of new clothing and an outlet for the things I no longer need but someone else might. It allows everyone to prevent things from going in the trash and a chance to find some new treasures at no cost.
I am proud and happy to provide the space for my community to share. I am proud and happy to be a peer.”
