My newest love affair...

I have found a new vice, a new addiction, a love affair of sorts.... and it's called Craigslist! For those of you who are living under a rock and have not found the gold mine of treasures and deals, let me introduce you.... www.craigslist.com. It is a site that allows people to sell items, list services, advertise homes for sale/rent. Most every major city in the U.S. has a craigslist site. I have used craigslist alot over the past few years to find apartments, buy TV's, etc... but I had never sold anything on it.... until last week. And now I'm hooked!

I had this TV that I no longer needed/wanted but I didn't want to just throw it out. So I decided to list it on craigslist and see what would happen. Within 2 hours of posting the ad I had 2 people emailing me making offers. By 6:00pm the next day it was sold. The best part? I didn't have to ship it or worry about getting the money (like you do w/ ebay). I simply told them where to pick up the TV, and told them "cash only". Now I'm a little richer, and free from the cumbersome TV that I no longer needed. My friend had a bedroom suite that he wanted to get rid of.... sold 1 day after posting the ad! Wow, how simple! Now I'm looking around my house trying to find other things to sale. haha.

And since I've always been a bargain shopper, craigslist is one of the first places I look when I'm in the market for something. Tickets to a concert or sporting event? Yep, you can find them there! Need a refrigerator for your garage, but don't want to spend the money for a brand new one? CRAIGSLIST! It's a gold mine.... I'm not kidding.

Well, I guess it's safe to say I'm addicted.
