Little by little, the ugly things are leaving the house. Take my back yard, for example. This hideous (and inexplicably placed) stone birdbath has seen better days:
Thanks to ten minutes of posting and a lovely woman named Deborah on Craigslist, this eyesore now has a new home on her much larger (and wooded) bird-loving property. The woman was very happy with her new find (Seriously. The woman loves birdwatching – she even wanted to go through my garage to see if I had any birdhouses available). And I am left with one more empty space to figure out.
I didn’t realize it was so easy to get rid of the things that bug you on Craigslist. I didn’t want it, so was happy to give it away for free… though, after the flood of phone calls I received about the birdbath, I guess I could have just as easily sold it for remodeling funds.
Can you believe that people even try to sell their old (and dusty) silk plants on Craigslist? Not give them away… sell! If I ever do have a garage sale, I’m not going to even bother putting it out in my driveway. Online certainly seems like the way to go: all you need is a pic (so no effort), a post, and the interested parties come and take it away for you!
Have you ever put something on Craigslist you never thought anyone would want, only to find 300 voicemails like I did? I’d love to hear your Craigslist stories :)
