I'm Loving Craigslist!

We have some stuff we were wanting to sell. Our old washer, dryer, an old computer desk, a file cabinet, some monster stereo speakers, some bookshelf speakers and TV trays. Not to mention the dozens of boxes we had unpacked (wanted to give these away, not sell them). I hated the thought of throwing them all away.

First, I checked to see if anyone had posted want ads for the things I had. The only thing I found was a couple needing moving boxes. So, I posted everything else on Saturday night and sent the couple an email about the boxes. They came and picked up all the boxes (Michelle - I saved six for you!) on Sunday. Today, we sold the washer and dryer - literally, they are gone and we have cash in hand. And tonight I have a commitment to purchase the TV trays! I've also had several questions about the speakers and the computer desk. We'll see! But it was really easy and FREE!

Check it out if you haven't already. I'm amazed. We also were able to sell our old refrigerator from our old house on Craigslist too. This was back in the spring. Just had to share my excitement. Be watching soon for more new house photos!!!

Craigslist, Freecycle and family (Scavengers).....
You can get rid of anything with these three things.

Actually, we left our buyer a list of about 15 things we planned on Freecycling. They marked off about 13 of them that they wanted!! YEAH!

I'll have to try it again. I haven't in years... wasn't enough activity whenever I tried it last.
glad Rachel enjoyed her first day!
