When you're looking to buy something locally, you can often find great bargains on craigslist (www.craigslist.org), an online classified advertising site. Browse the ads until you find what you want, and then arrange with the seller to make the purchase.
^^ Go to www.craigslist.org.
Click the name of your city or state.
Go to the For Sale section and click the category you're looking for.
Classified Ads Listings on craigslist are just like traditional newspaper classified ads. All transactions are between you and the seller; craigslist is just the "middleman." ■
Contacting the Seller When you contact the seller via email, let him know you're interested in the item and would like to see it in person. The seller should reply with a suggested time and place to view and possibly purchase the item. ■
Click the link for the item you're interested in.
Click the Reply To link to email the seller and express your interest.
