Craigslist Crazy!

June 30th, 2008 at 09:18 pm

Before we left on our trip, I hired my nephew to come over and haul a bunch of furniture from all over the house, out to the garage. I then posted it on Craigslist. I like that it is free to post, but people sure string you along. I DID sell this lovely bedroom set and a chair. Then, the day before we left, I held a "quickie" garage sale and sold another chair and the day bed. We gave away a piece of exercise equipment to the people that bought the bedroom set (we just wanted it gone!) and I have to still get a headboard to a lady who says she wants it, but never shows up. I also have to post an entertainment center. Then after the sale, my daughters helped me haul everything to the thrift store. I feel so FREE and PURGED!! Smile I can't say the Craigslist expeience was wildly successful, but it wasn't bad.

    Yeah, sometimes that Craigslist can be hit or miss but I still use it. Good for you though!!

    Yay! The 'flag' system on Craig is very inconsistent though, ie I post my arts&crafts items in my local area and sometimes they are removed sometimes not.

    That is a very pretty bedroom set - I can see why it sold so easily. Congrats on the successful purge!

    I've not had any experience with Craig's list, but have heard about some great deals that have taken place. Doesn't it feel good to purge all the junk out of our lives? We've been doing the same thing, and I feel lighter already!

    I can't wait to purge some more!! And.... the headboard was picked up today!! Wow! All I have to do is get rid of the entertainment center!!

    Ray.... I'm ready to buy my ticket!

    I wonder if I should have charged more for the furniture. I sold the day bed at a huge loss.
