Project Simplify: Craigslist

I am getting rids of lots and lots of stuff. Turning this:

Into something like this:

Okay, maybe not an actual Zen garden.

But close.

My first step?

Your local neighborhood Craigslist.

Craigslist is a site that is simple, easy and unbelievably popular. It’s like publishing in a type of “for sale” column you might find in a newspaper.
Except it’s online.
And free.

Woot.

I have used it to list a few larger items (read, furniture) that I am trying to sale. No bites yet, but I will keep  you updated.

If you have never tried Craigslist to sell (or buy), I recommend them.  The link is to the Tulsa one, but you can find one in nearly any city.

What about you? Have you ever listed on Craigslist? How was the experience? What might a person trying to sell on Craigslist do to make it a more successful sale?

Would love to hear from you!

Enjoying the journey,
~Melissa

  1. Melissa, my husband uses craigslist here in Albany all the time. He sells his old computer and gaming equipment on it. Its pretty easy to navigate too. I highly recommend it! Make sure you put exactly what the item is, and how much you’re selling it for on the Subject line. That way people know. And pictures always help too. Good luck!

    i’ve sold tons of stuff on craigslist. key is to add pictures always and keep the price low. no movement after a day or so, slash the price. my theory is might as well sell it for next to nothing than nothing at all.
