Should I have a garage sale or not? That has been the question. Do I really have enough stuff to warrant a garage sale? Do I really want to spend Friday evening sorting and pricing stuff, posting signs, and all day Saturday dealing with people who want everything for free? I decided no way.
Instead, I decided to give Craigslist a try. Now I've heard some horror stories about Craigslist, but figured what do I have to lose. So far I've made $235 and maybe $45 more tonight! Not bad, totally beats a garage sale. Everyone I have encountered has been friendly, responsive and respectful.
Today I saw this posting on Craigslist and I just had to laugh. I mean really, who is going to respond to this ad?

First of all, I don't think these are pine trees. Secondly, why would I want to do your landscaping for you? Are you serious?
