Addicted to Craigslist

The Austin Craigslist is really great. I suppose that's because Austin's a college town and also because a lot of people continue to move in and out of the city. A few weeks ago, a local radio deejay was talking about the barter posts on Craigslist. I'd never thought to look at those till she mentioned them. Here's a recent one that struck me funny:

Experienced Construction Worker Needs Counseling
Me: Carpentry, Masonry, Flooring, Painting, etc...
You: Anger Management & Depression Counselor

How awful it would be if a counselor took this guy up on his offer and then didn't like the work he did. :-)

I should take and post pics of some of the great Craigslist scores I've made, but I need a new digital camera. That could be my first barter.
Me: Almost new, Weedeater lawnmower
You: Almost new digital camera

I'll keep you posted.

This made me SMILE! Also reminds me I need to Craiglist a few things, and that always results in some very interesting email!

OMG, I almost spewed my coffee across the keyboard on that one, Sandra! You should send that to Jay Leno!

Now share some in-progress pics of your landscaping project!

Our Jackson Craigslist stinks. But I haven't tried the barter section yet. Now I gotta go look.

If nothing else, maybe I'll be entertained. :-)

I love checking out Craigslist, but I've never looked at the barter section! I need to go check it out!

You do have some great CL scores and from the sounds of things, more are coming. :-) The barter section huh? I'll have to check it out. I second the request for landscaping project pictures.... :-) Happy Easter Sandra!
