    I was so embarrassed today. I got caught peeing in the pool. When the lifeguard yelled at me I jumped and damn near fell in.

    I have sold a couple of vehicles on there. And bought a couple also. I have looked for other stuff, but was unsuccessful. I have not had problems, but am also very cautious and only deal in cash.

      Thank-you for your input, the part I was most nervous about, was the money part…and may-be coming to our home May-be I should put cash only in the add

        Depending on what you are selling, you could also make arrangements to meat somewhere. I was not concerned because of the time of day and the close neighbors I have. We watch out for each other. If you are dealing with a valuable item, large sum of cash, or are just not comfortable, meet elsewhere or have company over during the transaction so they cannot gleam any perceived weaknesses.

          It is a large dresser so I will have to have them come here. I do have 2 German Shepherds at home as well as a good arsenal

            I have used Craigslist many times both sell and buying.

            Example: Try finding a plastic water barrel FDA approved 55 gallons for under 50 dollars on E-Bay or anywhere else on the web. Go and see what you will pay on E-Bay. Then check your local Craigslist and see how much it will cost you from a local seller. My highest price I paid was $22.50 and he delivered 10 of them to me.

            2. Things to remember:

            (1) Always use cash! you have less problems that way.

            (2) No returns if they find they do not like it after paying for it. Oh Well they can use Craigslist and resell it themselves.

                    I to have sold and got somethings, but beware the spanners. Best thing is if you sell google the email address of the person that's asking about it before you reply to it.

                      You need to VERY careful about buying containers that absolutely need to be food grade .... such as for water & food ..... the 3 rd party brokers, like on CraigsList, will tell you anything to make a sale ..... they figure when a person turns up poisoned they won't be found .....

                      and PLEASE don't tell me they are food grade because they have a #2 recycle symbol ......

                        I posted a real nice dresser for $25.00 its worth more than that but we just wanted to get rid of it, it`s taking up too much space. It is up stairs in our house and I need help bringing it down stairs, too make a long story short I had 6 e-mails about the dresser.(with-in 2 hour after posting) I thought $25.00 was a good deal…but most of the people who responded to the post wanted me to deliver it for that price. I think if they are to lazy to come and get it, I will just use it for firewood this winter….
