LIFE: Put your "trash" on Craigslist

Friday, December 27, 2013

"One man's trash is another man's treasure."

Every time I hear that saying I remember the days when I lived out in Long Island and how I'd window shop my wealthy neighbors' trash from the car. Perfectly good TV's, desks, chairs, couches ... it hurts even now to think that all that went to waste and not instead donated to the Salvation Army or Good Will. 

Good thing that in the age of technology, you don't even have to donate to an organization - you can find a pool of "trash" window shoppers right on craigslist! 

Earlier today I posted an image of a Encyclopedia set in the trash and an IG-er commented the following: "Why couldn't someone post this on Craigslist? (Sigh)" There are "appropriate" responses to this, but none of them could really make up for the waste. 

Perhaps people don't think anyone would want this... but then again I've seen crazier stuff given away on CL and even crazier people who jump on the opportunity! 

What do you think? Have you guys posted your trash on craigslist?
