You can watch Craigslist TV
Did you know Craigslist has their own video channel that highlights real people using the site in various ways? There is everything from local sports teams looking for players to fill out their roster to someone looking for love in a more personal way. Maybe you’re just a bit of a voyeur or want a good laugh. It’s worth a look simply because you never know what you will find on Craigslist.
You Can Ask Questions In Craigslist Discussion Forums
We all know the internet has no shortage of discussion forums to ask questions like how to deal with blue screen issue in Windows. However, there is something to be said for a more localized opinion in many instances. Lets say its a question on lawn care. When drought hits a specific area trees get stressed and issues like pine beetle infestations start to run rampant. What are other people in the area doing to remedy the mess? When you take a moment you can come up with a ton of similar realities that a local opinion would yield the greatest benefit.
You Can Get Rid Of That Mess On Craigslist
Some people just don’t need the money when new furniture is about to arrive, but they sure want the old out of there quick. Even a dingy couch or broken Air hockey table from the basement will disappear in one afternoon if you list it for free. But also know that stack of old pallets, scrap lumber or dead tree you just cut down will vanish like magic, too. In fact when it comes to firewood just remember to cut that dead crabapple tree into 4′ to 5′ sections and in my experience it will be gone in two hours. Even clean fill dirt has a new home.
You Can Barter Instead Of Buy On Craigslist
Its as simple as trade your stuff for new stuff. You can trade whatever you have for whatever they are then willing to offer. I’m not sure how to expand on this other than it could even be a goat for a pool table. Take a picture and give a good description. List any absolutes you are not interested in and go from there. This might even be a good way to get your feet wet in the whole Craigslist posting arena. And by that mean it will give you an idea of the back and forth communication via their spoofed email service. This knowing you could list about anything and see what happens since not held to a sure trade.
You Can Rent A Country On Craigslist
You can actually rent the entire country of Liechtenstein for approx $70,000.00 per day based on a minimum two day stay. You will receive your very own currency and even the key to the country. I know what you’re thinking, this knowing its not like you will get to write any law or be the boss of anything real. But you do get to technically claim to have owned your own country for 48 hrs and that could win a few bets at the bar.
You Can Find Someone To Share The Gas On That Road Trip To College
I’m not condoning this knowing Freddy Kruger could answer your post. However, there are postings looking for a ride to area ski towns all the time in my local Craigslist. Things that might help weed out the weirdos fast might be to ask for a look at their Facebook presence. Someone with enough wholesome back and forth complete with pictures playing in the pool with the kids could remove at least a little fear. Be careful and just know its an option.
You Can Hire Or Be Hired For Quick Odd Jobs
Have a huge mess to clean up after a flood? That amazing mother in law from hell Will you her own episode from hoarders? Maybe you have some time and need fast money? Take a look under the “Gigs” heading for muscle for hire or to find someone who needs another pair of hands. I’m sure they will give you instructions and insight inside the conversation. Just be capable of what you are about to be tasked with and you might even make some new friends.
Lost And Found
I know this is not that remarkable a secret given it obvious Craigslist does what the newspapers covered and more. There are those out there that have only heard the news stories and believe Craigslist is a place to sell things and find trouble. Just know if you lost or find a wallet, ring or puppy its a great place to find the owner. Hold back giving to broad a description, giving the location and general information. That way your not giving someone elses dog to the wrong person. I’m sure you can figure something out like the color of collar, etc. What brand of backpack, etc.
