I usually frequent the Free section a lot.  I've found some really great deals.  I was able to find moving boxes when I moved, packing peanuts for the busy shipping season and even a new dish set.  I've also found alot of other items as well. Not too long ago I answered an ad about a treadmill.  The treadmill was a few years old, but everything worked and she even had the manual.  She bought it for just over $500 and I paid $200 for it...bargin!!

There are some things I don't like about it.  I scout the internet finding legit work at home jobs quite often.  I usually run into a lot of scams on Craigslist in that section.  I am always flagging post for spam, or being miscategorized, etc.  It becomes very time consuming going through all the bad ones just to find a few good, legit work at home jobs.  So in that sense it can get frustrating.  But overall it is a great site.

Internet phenomenal, scourge to society or mirror to human civilization? Who knows but one thing's for sure - you haven't lived until you've tried to sell a sofa on Craigslist.      As a website, it's an amazing survivor of the 1995 era where WebPagesThatSuck outed the most outrageous offenders of terrible navigation, poor display, graphics and just general awfulness. I've heard that founder Craig Newmark likes it that way. I can guess from this single …

Yes, I know Craigslist is more than just buying and selling "stuff".  I haven't found much use for Craigslist outside of selling stuff, though.  I haven't even purchased anything off the site.  Just today I gathered up some stuff and listed it in my own virtual garage sale.  You can read about that here:      http://jeffdalydose.wordpress.com/2010/02/04/digitalgaragesale/      So what some other uses for Craigslist?   …

Great site for donating used toys and to compare rent prices in neighborhood.

I actually use this site quite often. It has allot of different aspects to it, and I know it has received some bad press but I defiantly think it has more to offer then to offend.

Ahh, Craigslist, the good, the bad and the ugly. Craigslist is really the Internet within itself. Just about anything you can get across the web, you can get at Craigslist. You can find a job, market your services, buy a house, find a doctor, connect with others, sell your stuff and so much more. Since you can do so many things, it can actually become quite addictive.     First the good. You can really find so many deals on Craigslist. Usually, it's used stuff, but most of the …

The "Best Of" section of CL is the best! Oh man, so much funny, witty, yet entertainingly inappropriate postings there.
