10 Items You Should Buy on Craigslist

by Missourism

1. Exercise Equipment

Why? It's simple: human nature. Every year, people make New Year's resolutions to shed pounds, get in shape, and stay fit.

2. Bed Frames

You can find fantastic deals on bed frames, including four-poster beds, and all you need to do is arrange for pickup if your truck isn't big enough for the job.

3. Furniture

For furniture, especially classic mid-century modern pieces, we head straight to Craigslist. They're often more affordable than store-bought items, exude more character, and were built to withstand the test of time.

4. DVDs and CDs

People still buy DVDs and CDs. They watch or listen to them and eventually lose interest. Or they transfer the content to their iPods, computers, or other devices, leaving the originals to collect dust. So, they decide to sell them, and that's where you can swoop in for some great deals.

5. Video Games

Even more abundant than movies and albums are video games. The reason is quite practical. Unlike DVDs and CDs, once a game is completed, there's little incentive to start all over again.

6. Collectibles

Typewriters, old cameras, action figures, clocks, teapots – you name it, you'll find something to add to your collection on Craigslist.

7. Tools

For tools, Craigslist is an excellent option, and you can snag them at a significantly lower cost.

8. Books

Craigslist boasts a dedicated category for books, and the prices are as low as ever.

9. Toys

You can score some of the latest toys on Craigslist for a fraction of the price, and you won't have to deal with the infuriating packaging that could test the patience of a saint.

10. Bicycles

Caution is advised here, but if you know what you want and what to look for, you can unearth some fantastic deals. Kids' bikes, as well as cruiser bikes, are excellent options in this category.
