I was looking for lumber but ran across this post on craigslist for 50 pounds of nails for $5. It’s really amazing what there is to find on craigslist. Most of it goes really fast, at least here in Sacramento, but there’s always something and sometimes you luck out.
And here’s why you need to watch the free stuff on craigslist like a hawk. I emailed them about six hours (the length of a lifetime on craigslist) after they posted these 2x4s on craigslist. I never got a call or email so I assume the lumber is long gone. I’ll just need to be more persistent and observant.
My wife Julia spotted this today and I thought I’d post it to show you an example of the kind of free stuff that gets posted on craigslist. There’s no photo but it sounds like a 35′ single wide trailer. Want a free house? Near Auburn, California? Hurry, things like this go really fast.
