YouHaveIWant is the fun and easy way for you and your friends
to re use, share, borrow and trade with each other.
If you are looking for a book, or a power drill, maybe a baby-sitter or a dentist referral; someone in your network may have what you are looking for or could help you get it. So, before you go searching on-line, post a short message on YouHaveIWant and share it with your friends. It could save you time and money.
Why should you use YouHaveIWant?
You use Craigslist, EBay to trade and transact with people you don't know. Twitter and Facebook to socialize and stay in touch with people you do.
If you were aware of what the people around you are looking to buy/sell, share/borrow, you could help & engage in simple transactions with each other more often . Trading and sharing within your community/network enables re-use and helps reduce waste. We can save time, money and do good.
YouHaveIWant makes it easier to get advice, recommendations and introductions from people you know. A known connection is easier to verify, trust and to follow-up on. Borrowing and sharing becomes easier if you can post a single sentence message out to your YHIW network asking to borrow a power drill or to share a coupon deal. Plus It can be fun to see what your friends are offering & seeking.
