Note: As more and more people discover the benefits of rental, and iLetYou grows and sheds light on the tangible and intangible benefits, I’m searching for concise ways of explaining what we’re doing. Please let me know your thoughts in the comments!
In the down economy, renting makes more financial sense than ever.
From an ecological standpoint, you can make a real impact by changing your purchases into on-demand rentals. From car sharing to consumer subscription services, new and innovative rental businesses are helping you do this without skipping a beat.
Green businesses have embraced rental as a means to turn a product into a service for some time, reducing consumption levels. Studies tell us what we already know: we derive more enjoyment from our lives, experiences and the people around us, and that’s a better way to spend our hard-earned cash than surrounding ourselves with useless stuff.
iLetYou helps you discover the products you can rent, and the activities that have been enabled by rental businesses helping you discover your inner do-it-yourselfer, adventurer, fashionista, and much more.
It’s a lifestyle you can affordably and sustainably enjoy!
Lovely Kate Beckinsale was on the Tonight Snow Tuesday night sharing a funny story of how she rents Christmas. Kate’s husband, who used to work in the props department, rented her Christmas in Los Angeles via soap suds. Kate also says it was “actually quite cheap”. Go to around 20:00 for the actual story. Much of the interview also showed surprising stories of the Hollywood actress’ cheap habits.
Jay Leno then makes fun of her, saying there are actual snow machines available - which you may be able to rent too. Maybe soap’s kind of a funny way to celebrate Christmas, but a great example of how to save money and have a wonderful time doing it. Love Kate Beckinsale’s attitude for a Hollywood star!
