I love Craigslist. I have been using it *almost* since being back in Albuquerque. I think it really started (kicked into high gear anyway) for me when we moved into our first rental house and continued after we moved into our own.
We have had so much success on Craigslist it has been just great. While I have some complaints (people spamming the site, etc.), the only MAJOR drawback was having to click on EVERY SINGLE LISTING I wanted to look at and then go back and find a new one to look at. A long time ago I made the decision to only look at postings if they had pictures (with a few exceptions) accompanying them. That made things go a little faster, but it was still a time consuming process.
A few months ago I was reading a blog post and, like a light shinning down from heaven *cue angel chorus*, they mentioned a new site called CraigsEasy. It has since CHANGED MY LIFE. No longer am I spending hours scouring craigslist (well, I sort of stopped that a long time ago, but for the times I do go to browse anyway), but now I can see all of the pictures posted at ONE TIME using craigseasy.
How is this you ask? It’s easy (haha…get it…craigseasy…haha!) Their site gives you a step by step of how to use it, but basically, you download a bookmark to your toolbar from their site. Then you go to craigslist for your city (or whatever one you are looking for), type in your search and wait for the results to come up. Instead of clicking through all of the posts, you simply go up to your craigseasy bookmark, click it, and are taken to a page that displays all of the pictures, as well as the title/description/location/price listed, for the item you searched for. So easy! If you want to see the rest of the details, all you have to do is click on the title/description/etc. hyperlink and it will take you to the craigslist add.
LOVE IT! So if you aren’t already using it, do yourself a favor and save yourself some time by downloading the bookmark.
*I have received no money, nor have I been asked to review this site. I simply love it and wanted to share it with my awesome friends and readers!
