Are You Afraid of Craigslist?

Posted by ricebird |

CRAIGSLIST is like a box of chocolates: you never know what you're going to get.

Roommate horror (and success) stories aside, Craigslist is amazingly useful in a recession, in particular, the FREE section.


Times are tight, times are tough, and some times you just want something for FREE. CL is there for you. There's gold (figuratively) and trash (literally), so check daily, more than once. It takes 10 minutes, so it's not a real time committment. And if you ever get something you've been wanting, hell, it's worth it.

What I've found in the last week beyond the obvious curbside college futon and broken refridgerator:

tickets to a legitimate musical (in case you're curious, called SESSIONS)
headshots (a seemingly legit bored photographer)
"serious" karate lessons (get a new hobby!)
beautiful FILM SET furniture (if i had a car, dammit!)
pets (like you need another mouth to feed)
cubicles (not kidding)
haircuts/dye jobs (beauty schools)
tons of books (imagine lugging those on a subway?)
bags of clothes (probably stained and gross)
theatre costumes (holloween prep?)
dental exams (not sure this would be a good idea)
wigs (a new you?)

So yeah. Check it out, see what you find. Let me know if it works out for you!

And you know, I think I might take up that dude on the free karate. So HI-Ya! RECESS THIS.
