I LOVE Craigslist, and I have to say around here you better be quick if you see a listing you want cuz stuff FLIES off that site upon being listed!

In the last year I have bought a LOT of furniture, a couple of tools, auto parts, swamp cooler,....all at prices well below the "norm" so to speak.

I have lost out on a whole lotta things too, because I wasn't awake and calling on the ads at 6:00 a.m.....as I said stuff flies off that site in these parts!

I have sold 2 appliances, a lawn mower, and a few other stuffs I don't recall! All went quickly, hassle free and the money was acceptable.


I have gotten some GREAT scores off the "FREE" thread, too! I was given a gorgeous, huge tropical split leaf philodendrum houseplant that if it came from a greenhouse or store would easily cost well over a hundred bucks.

I got a cool compost machine recently, too! Another time someone gave away a certificate for a free therapeutic massage that he couldn't use and I saw the post right away and so that, too, thanks to CL!

But the very best deal from there was last January I was looking through the Pick up trucks as I often do, and saw this guy selling an 86 F250 4x4 crew cab long bed.( me always likee this truck) At the time, I had this old 88 Toyota truck as a 2nd vehicle that I HATED with a passion, and had acquired some years ago from a "friend" who couldn't pay back a loan and needed another one, so I took the hunk of crap in exchange. I always say a girl really should have a truck for when she needs a truck, & that toyota barely even qualified as such!

So I called dude, and asked how much, etc...and how about bartering for stuff as a maybe? And a few days later VOILA, we're at the DMV putting on the new plates and I'm still shaking my head why he went for it! Oh, it was gas mileage, as I recall, and it was not his main vehicle either but I almost felt guilty!

If you had seen the 2 trucks, and then heard this story you would know why I am referred to as the QUEEN of Craigslist by a few folks that did!

BTW, if you do use CL and don't already know about Greasemonkey add-on for Firefox, RUN don't walk and check it out. It makes searching WAY less time consuming as you see the pictures on the results page, you don't have to click each ad. I wouldn't be able to take it if you still had to in order to weed thru the junk, which I will admit there is a bunch of usually.

Anyhow, common sense will keep you safe. I meet people at my storage unit or similar arrangement if I'm selling, I NEVER had people come here to my house, except the truck guy but that was different
