I <3 Craig's List
Why put stuff out on the curb and hope someone takes it when you can put it on Craig's List! We have an old, but still working gas grill. It's rusted, and we grill a lot, so we made the command decision that in Texas we would buy a new grill rather than try to haul this thing. Besides, moving companies are funny about propane tanks. Usually, what I would do with something like this is put it out on the curb early the day before garbage pick-up with a sign that says 'Still Works' and hope someone picked it up. We live on a dead end street, but stuff still disappears much of the time.
But now I can put it on Craig's List with the two empty propane tanks for $25! And someone who wants one will get a grill and we don't have to worry about sending it to Texas! In fact, someone may pay me not to have to take it to Texas! This is so cool!
I am now prowling my house looking for things to post on the list. Make a little cash, reduce the amount of stuff I have. It's a win-win, right? There's got to be stuff I can get rid of.
Think $10 is too high?
