I use craigslist a lot for buying and selling stuff for my kids.
Selling stuff is very easy. Just have a great picture and be honest about the condition of the item. But I always had trouble finding the right items to buy. It takes a long time to go over all ads one by one.
Recently, I was looking for the sturdy kitchen table. This was something I didn't want to buy new as it was going to be used for craft time and eating. You know kids; they won't let you get away with a nice thing.
I kept looking and looking but the search was useless with two kids running around distracting me. Finally, I found a very user friendly website " clhack.com" it shows all the craigslist for sale ads visualy and you can even narrow down your search to the specifics. The nice thing about clhack is that it shows all the pictures for all ads in a category say furniture on a single page. With a glance you can choose the item you might be interested in. I tell you, it's amazing. When you hover over a picture it zooms in so you can see better.
I found my table in a matter of minutes thanks to this incredible website. Kudos to the person who came up with the idea for this website.
Try it for yourself, I'm sure you'll love it.
