24 Rental Innovations

From Celebrity Home Rentals to Renting People

— April 21, 2010 — Business
I'm here to give your credit cards a rest by presenting to you these rental Innovations. After all, since it's the norm for commodities to achieve instance obsolescence in our society, why not just rent all of those cool toys?

These rental innovations go way beyond the video store. In here you will find that you can rent pretty much anything from mansions to friends. This cluster is even for rent. We can negotiate a price later.
