I heart Craigslist

I am in love with Craigslist right now.

On Friday, I got the stomach flu and was basically out of commission for the entire day. On Saturday, I was very weary of food, so I decided to take it easy and hook up my dvd player to my tv that I have had since college (it has a built in vhs player in it!) and watch season one of Gilmore Girls.

While watching tv, I decided to shred old bank statements, and tackle the huge Rubbermaid bins filled with god knows what.

Well, now that I have gone through said bins, I can tell you I have a bunch of stuff that I don't need anymore. I also found a few things I do need - namely, $100 gift card to Sears (from Christmas, oh, 4 years ago), a $10 gift card to Build-A-Bear, and $30 gift card to Target from two years ago. Score!

Anyways, some of the items I have posted on Craigslist include:

Hello Kitty Water Dispenser
I got this as a gift from a boy who knew my love of Hello Kitty. I actually brought this into work and used it for a month at my desk until I grew annoyed with refilling the water bottle twice a day. Thankfully, I just sold this yesterday to a woman whose daughter loves HK! I told her to give it to her for Christmas. 

Knock off D&G purse

I bought this purse from Canal Street in New York City, on one of my many trips to the Big Apple. I remember I really wanted a cool purse and to feel stylish and hip and I bought this from someone off the street, basically. I used it twice before I realized that it's just too big for me. Thankfully, I sold it yesterday(!!)  to a woman who loves purses!

Birthstone Teddy Bear

I received this birthstone teddy bear from an old boss. She got it for me when I graduated high school and before I left for college. I can't believe I've held onto it for so long. I am hoping this one will sell soon. I have had one person interested in it, but she hasn't called me back again. I definitely don't want it anymore. I hate my birthstone color - peridot. 

Blonde Supermodel Wig
Two years ago I thought my friends and I would dress up for Halloween as the witches from Hocus Pocus. So I bought a Groupon for a local Halloween store, and bought a blonde wig. Turns out the whole dressing up thing didn't really happen, but I wore the wig anyways along with a sparkly black dress and high heels and called myself a Jersey girl. (I am very apathetic when it comes to Halloween and dressing up. I usually stay home and pass out candy) Since then, it's been sitting in my closet, untouched. I hope someone buys this because I really won't use it again. Lesson learned - don't buy Groupons for Halloween merchandise. 

Amazing High Heels
I seriously love these shoes (probably because they are my favorite color!) but if I'm being honest with myself, I should have never bought them. They are a) too big for me and b) have too high of a heel for me to walk normal. Such a shame, but now I know, don't buy anything from Nine West unless it's in the kids department and actually fits. Or better yet, return the stuff if you can. But I have held onto them for awhile because I like to look at them and sometimes wear them around my house. I'm hoping someone buys them though, because they are a constant reminder that I have very small feet. 

Cordless Phone Set
I know, who has landlines anymore? My uncle gifted me this plus another phone and base when I moved into my apartment a few years ago, when we actually had a landline. I know, times have changed, and I am definitely not getting one in my new place, so time to get rid of it. 

Look, it's a koozie!
Last but not least, I found a brand new koozie in the bin o'stuff. I am pretty sure I got this for free somewhere from someone. I am definitely not a koozie type person. I don't think I have ever tailgated. To me, sports games are purely social hour. But given the whole popular Tebowing phenomena, I might have a chance of selling this.

All in all, I have more stuff to sell. I wish I could have a huge garage sale, but it's a) against my HOA rules, and b) my parents are lame and won't let me have it at their house. So, that leaves me uploading items individually on Craigslist, which is a bit of a pain. But it's kinda fun and addicting once you get interest in items you're selling. Here's to hoping I have more success!

Tell me, what have you either found recently or want to get rid of?
