I have a dear friend who has hundreds of movies they let people borrow. She keeps a notebook that everyone is required to sign and date with email address. After a month or so, if not returned she gives them a call or email. She says it keeps every one on good terms and she has always gotten all of her movies back.

No, I would not ask for collateral. Ever. When I loan,something to someone I just look on it as a potential gift. If they bring it back that's great but, if they don't, I've already considered it a gift. I' m sure in my almost 78 years I've inadvertently forgotten to return something just because "life happened".

it as a possible gift

A gal in our guild borrowed circle templates from me, and after awhile I forgot about them. Three yrs. and spending $28.00 on new templates the gal brings them to me. I no longer loan because of her.

My dad and a friend had a agreement. When one or the other borrowed something, the one who it was borrowed from would go and collect it. It worked for them.

I agree with jitkaau

My generosity has been taken for granted far too many times.

Just sounds a tad bit controlling to me! I f I have a friend and they borrow something...after a while I just ask for it back...simplest way to go...I'm not a banker..asking for collateral puts your friendship on a level I don't want to be on with my friends!

I think that's a really good idea. Sort of like a lending library does it. I never remember either. Fortunately I only lend to my sister.

The suggestion of taking a photo with the item is spot on!!! I would use that if I ever lent anything out which I do not been burned!!!
