New Obsession

I have a new obsession.
It's Craigslist.

I adore it. I got an iphone about a month ago, and I tend to look at craigslist in-between clients and while waiting in line at the store! I can go days without seeing anything I would be interested in purchasing and then, bam- something will pop up!

So far, I've gotten mainly toys/games/materials for speech therapy- that Bryson can play with when he is a little older. Some of my best finds thus far?
  • Leap Frog fridge toys- garage set and animal matching set for $10 total
  • Elefun for $2
  • Melissa & Doug puzzles, 6 for $10 total
  • Melissa & Doug lacing blocks and castle building blocks for $10 total
  • 64 jars of gerber baby food for $10

I've sold several baby items on Craigslist as well- items that we just didn't use and I can't see us using the future.

What do you think of Craigslist? I was a little creeped out by it at first, but I always meet the seller/buyer at the local gas station, during the day time. I also never give out my phone number.

What have you found on Craigslist?

I love Craigslist too! I was actually just about to look on there too! I've only bought one thing and that's Jenna's cute Ikea red/blue table that I love so much and it was only $15! I haven't sold anything yet, but I have a feeling that may be how I sell the baby gear and misc toys too. I don't know...

I love Craigslist. I have sold many things and bought many things as well.

My latest purchase were concert tickets for last night. $20 off purchase price, per ticket. Woohoo!

I also got the vanity in Ali's room through Craigslist. And we sold our old couches through craigslist. I love it!

We used Craigslist last winter to find a home for one of our dogs. We found a wonderful home for him! We have also sold a car on there! Love it!!!

Let's see... a couch (twice), some toy cars for my kid, and we've sold a cat play tower, a couch, a bed, and some fishing equipment. Love it!

I LOVE craigslist! I sold all my furniture on it before I left Tulsa. I furnished my entire apartment here in Houston with it too! Found a Pottery Barn couch for 300 and Kitchen Aid Mixer (used once) for 75!!!!
