I am addicted to the craigslist “free” section. I cannot help myself. I have a browser open all day and refresh it through out the day. I find myself going home and opening the website at home so I can monitor the activities. It’s a whole other world people. I love reading the ads, last night I saw an ad titled “free gym staff” and I was anxious to find out who was getting rid of their employees. I opened the ad and realized someone had misspelled stuff… I was so disappointed!
There was one ad a few days ago that was so incredibly honest – it made me laugh. The people writing these ads just want this crap gone. They are making the sale!! This woman was trying to get rid of this old crappy couch and had written on the ad “not very comfortable, but with a slip cover and some new cushions it would be great for someone!” I think she might need to work on her sales tactics.
There are tons of ads for free dirt. Basically, people want you to come by their house and dig up their yard – for free. You can take all the dirt you want, but you’ve gotta remove it. Who is doing this? There are tons of ads for “free wood” as well. Again… craigslist posters must think the rest of the community is stooopid! Free wood “pieces” from our “deck” in small “1 foot lengths.” Soooo, I guess I’m coming to your back yard to pick up all the crap left over from building your deck?
A few days ago – I scored BIG time on craigslist. I found a very sturdy set of wooden lockers complete with keys! I have no idea where we are going to put it – or what we are going to do with it… but I just had to have it. Michael picked it up yesterday – these pictures do not do it justice! Of course you ask “but where will you put it?” and I’m telling you – leave that up to me! I have ways of making this work! I would love to put it in the boys room because I think it’s a really cool storage area. I can imagine Brody locking Evan into one of the lockers and then losing the key.
Right now this beauty is sitting in our backyard waiting. Now, if you’ll excuse me – I found a free hot tub on craigslist and I need to make arrangements for pick up.
