Congrats! That’s awesome. 

We’ve bought and sold a few things on Craigslist, but my favorite by far was our KitchenAid Artisan. It was never used, just sat in the box for awhile, and we got it for $150. I love it!

I love craigslist,it’s my go to for everything!

I bought my Nikon D80 on Craiglist for $650, with the lens! There have been many things I’ve got there, but that was the best.

Usually just the D80 bodies go for about $800, add in the lens and you’re looking at well over 1k. So I was super psyched!

I love craigslist!

I haven’t purchased too many items on there.  The most recent was a treadmill for only 25 dollars!

I mostly sell items on there have had 100% success so far.

I am always drawn to look at the pets, though I keep telling myself not to!!!  It’s so hard to NOT want to adopt their pet after reading a sad sob story.

When we moved into our house we got our kitchen table, a pool table, and a jacuzzi on Craigslist.  We probably paid about a third of what the original owner did.  They are really nice pieces of furniture.  I think the table was like $3,000 originally.  It’s also great because you get to go and see the stuff before you buy…score.

Congrats on the great dress deal!

As poor college students, I don’t think we could even furnish our apartment without craigslist.  

I’ve also found some great jobs on there to do for a little extra cash, and we got a deal on our apartment through there!  I love Craigslist.

No, actually, I find that alot of the stuff is overly priced in my area and soiled (furniture).  I have had better success at local thrift stores.

I have purchased tons of things from there.  My FH laughs at me and says I am redecorating our house $50 at a time.  I have also gotten some of our wedding stuff from there, both in our home town and in my mothers town.  I wished sometimes I lived in a bigger city as I see a ton of things I would buy in my mothers town.  I have gotten a ton of steals on that site, but you have to be patient and wait until what you want comes up for the price you want.
