I've only actually purchased 3 things off of Craigslist, but I feel like after those purchases I was convinced that this website was the bomb.com.
Our apartment that we live in was found by my friend Amy via Craigslist. Good job Amy! She found it the minute it was posted and we were the first people to see it...I'm so glad she found it because we definitely love living here!
I found our coffee and end table off of Craigslist in Lexington, KY. It wasn't the look I was going for, but they were both solid wood and a good brand so I knew that they would be perfect candidates for a strip and a re-stain. You can go here to see the transformation of these tables.
The last thing we purchased off Craigslist was an air conditioner unit for our guest bedroom. We went a picked that up yesterday for a whopping deal!
Have you ever taken the time to look at the free items on Craigslist? Sometimes (when I'm bored) I'll get on there and look at the free section to see what people are parting with. It always amazes me that people actually take the time to take pictures of some of these items and post them on Craigslist as opposed to just taken them to the local Goodwill and donating them. I've seen things like coffee mugs, stuffed animals, you name it! Just today I found the following items that were just waiting to be picked up:
A basket of shoes. Really? Do you really think that the people who could mostly benefit from these shoes are perusing Craigslist to find them??? Just take them to the Salvation Army or Goodwill so that they can find themselves on a needy recipient!
A glass plate for your microwave - exactly what you didn't realize that you needed! :)
Baseballs...again, I'm so confused why they wouldn't just donate them to their local little league.
A cap and gown - for all my friends who are getting ready to graduate, let me know and I'll rush to this address to pick up your free cap and gown!
Take a second to check out the free section of Craigslist and let me know what crazy things you find :)!
