    Try putting files and folders you want to share in the Shared folder. You can find it in the Users folder at the root of your hard drive.

    Options:

    (1) Use a subfolder in /Users/Shared folder. Take care of read/write permissions on that subfolder.

    (2) Use a common, external USB disk. All users automatically have read/write to USB disks.

    If you want to work together with several accounts, then make them all
    belong to the same group and give all your directories access to group members.
    From then on you can copy files to your mates.
    Setting the 4000 bit on directories should set all copied files to be owned
    by the owner of that directory.
    Options galore.
    ;JOOP!

    Navigate to the other users home directory and in the public folder there is a "Drop Box" (not the service Dropbox) folder. Drag and drop whatever you want to copy to the other user there.
