Have you ever taken a look around at the amount of items that you purchased, only used a short period of time and then tossed them away? The future of our world belongs to the next generation, our children, so would you not want to find some way to keep these short-term used items out of landfills? You know that eventually that is where all of these baby clothes, toys, activity gear and such ultimately end up. As a Mom to three children, I know all too often how quickly clothes are outgrown, worn down and used up. Raising two fast-growing boys, I am seeing all too often a collection of shopping bags full of outgrown, usable clothing items!
Lendogram is a brilliant app for your iOS based smartphone where you can find friends who need the items your family has outgrown, and then borrow them. The problem with friends sharing outgrown items with friends is that we eventually forget who we lent something to. That baby activity center was lent to Sammy years ago, and then you find out that you are expecting another child and wonder, “where did that activity center end up?” Lendogram has a feature that allows you to borrow stuff from friends, keep track of who has what item and furthermore it has a feature to enable automatic reminders to your friends so that they will return the borrowed item in a timely fashion.
Being a parent of three children, I have lent things out to my friends and family only to completely forget where the old kid items or clothes ended up, I figure they are lost forever and not so important, but now that I see the app Lendogram is available for use; my hope of lending items and actually getting them returned has grown. This is an awesome app because you can use your social media following to lend to those you had no clue were in need of your no-longer-useable items. Search through friends and let them know, hey you have this item up for borrowing and then they can use Lendogram as a means to track the borrowing transaction!
The reason I love Lendogram is because it solves a few problems; the most important issue this awesome app solves is that it helps keep more items out of landfills and secondly it allows people to help people by lending items one may no longer have use for in this period of their life! I say you follow Lendogram on Twitter, Like Lendogram on Facebook, download the Lendogram app and let me know how it works out for you!
Cheers to people helping people while keeping our Earth a cleaner place!

This is such a great idea. It certainly would make it easier to keep track of things!
This sounds like an awesome app. I love anything that helps people reduce, reuse, and recycle.
I am the same, anything that can help us reuse stuff is awesome!
What a wonderful app! Anything that helps me keep track of things is amazing.
I think it really Lendogram is a neat idea!
Wow, this sounds like an effective app. I will have to download it and check it out.
Lendogram is a genius app! I love how it keeps tracks of the items for you. It’s great that users can find new homes for items they no longer need.
When I lend, I usually just give it away in my mind. I like this app, but honestly, I’d still give it away. lol
Yes Liz, that’s what we’re used to because it’s awkward to ask for something back or in some cases remember who borrowed what. Lendogram keeps track of who borrowed what and will send reminders to your friends to bring what you need back. When I know I will get my stuff back, I’m more inclined to share more.
I’d love to hear your feedback on this app and whether it helps you share what you want back 😉
What a neat app to help you keep track of who was given what to borrow. I’m at the point of giving away the smaller sizes, but there were times when we let someone borrow a ‘dress’ outfit for boys and forgot who had it to get it back.
That is such a smart way to lend and keep track of your stuff. I am trying to get rid of a lot of things but I bet I could lend it too!
What a great app. I need all the help I can get with keeping track of things.
I like the sound of this app, a lot. I might give it a try in the not so distant future.
I love this way to upcycle or lend things to others. I think this app is going to help make the world a better place.
I’m totally going to tell my moms group about this. We always are talking about the abundance of kids stuff we have that we no longer use.
I wish this app was around when my kids were little. To great idea to find it again when you need it.
Hmm! That is totally useful because it is easy to forget who you loaned what to. Thanks for the heads up!
I know I forget who I let borrow this item or that item all the time. What a great idea for an app. I’ll definitely check it out!
What a great idea!! I could use this to keep track of who is borrowing our stuff, we love to share but sometimes we forget were it went to.
What a great idea! Especially for houses that have kids… our daughters often lend out clothing and books to friends and this would help keep track of things better.
I have that trouble with movies. Where did that copy of Elf end up? Need to check this out.
This is a really good idea. And really useful.
