craig has the best lists

As Russell and I were driving to pick up our latest craigslist treasure, we started to reminisce about all how good this “list” has been to us!

Since we moved to KC in August of 2007, we have purchased a grand total of 16 things off of Craiglist!  One of the perks of being in a big city is that you can find incredible deals…  if (and if is the keyword) you are patient and if you know how to bargain!

One of our best finds was an entire guest bedroom set that had been used sparingly (ie a few times each year at a lake house) including a queen bed, mattress and box spring, and two dressers all for $325!  Each piece looks practically brand new.

Craigslist has taken us all over this city– from somewhat sketchy areas to some really nice neighborhoods and this is what we have ended up with:

Dining Room Table, Corner Hutch, Couch and Loveseat, Coffee Table, Sofa Table, Entertainment Stand, Refrigerator, Dishwasher, Stove, Microwave, Dryer, Bedroom Set, 2 large mirrors, a television, and a few 5 gallon buckets of paint.  Not bad, huh? 

So, if you have not taken advantage of Craigslist in your area, it is time to check it out!  Be a student of the game at first…  watching to see the typical prices that items are being listed for.  It won’t be long until you snag some deals of your own!
