CraigsEasy:: Makes Buying Other People’s Junk Much Easier!

Perhaps you’ve already heard of this (in which case I’m wondering why you held out on me!!), but for those who love to shop on Craigslist and haven’t yet heard of this nifty little thing called CraigsEasy, I’m almost positive you’ll want to hug me in about five minutes.

I admit it. I’m a Craigslist addict. “Hello, my name is Kristi, and I’m a Craigslist addict.” Oh, I seldom purchase anything, but I’m addicted to the hunt. But if you’ve ever been on Craigslist, you know how frustrating it can be having to click on each…and…every…listing…to see the pictures.

Well, those days are over! Here’s how it works.

First, go to the CraigsEasy website, and drag and drop the “Easy” button onto your bookmarks menu at the top of the browser.

Then go to Craigslist and the category you’d like to browse.  I always choose “furniture”.

And put in any search parameters you’d like to use.  I always search “furniture–by owner” and click “has image”.

And when the search results come up, just click on the button that you dragged and dropped to the bookmarks bar on your browser.

And after it works its magic, you get….PICTURES!  Listing after listing with PICTURES!  No more clicking on each listing to see the picture.  It’s fantastic!

See?  Don’t you want to hug me now?  But really, there’s no time for that!  You’ve got categories to search, and other people’s junk to buy!

    Honestly, I still have to try it, but I'm obviously afraid of having to waste so much time in there…love hunting by photos:)

    Great article. It's a great place to buy old stuff AND if you have refinishing skills for furniture, or are a visionary for turning drab things into fab it'll save a ton of money too. Thanks for sharing this.

    OH now this is hilarious. I have found someone just as addicted to CL as I am! I honestly felt like I was reading a blogpost that I wrote, because I too always go to furniture and only furniture by owner…you get better deals and more unique pieces. 🙂 Can't WAIT to go try this out!

    Buying other people stuff on CL can be a little nerve racking because you just don't know. I was burned, but I will try again with the tips, I don't know if I could give a shout out to a furniture sit, but http://www.homefurnitureandpatio.com has great products and will work with you on prices if you call in.
