My sister is constantly coming up with the next big thing. Or to put it more specifically she thinks she is coming up with the next big thing and then she tells me her idea and I have to sadly break it to her that it already exists. In the past she has come up with…the library….ebay…and most recently wooden utensils.
Recently I fell into the same category by thinking of my big idea and then sadly finding out it already exists. Perhaps everyone already knows about this idea, but it was new to me so I wanted to share.
I have always been jealous of all of those bloggers that are amazing at sourcing items on Craigslist. I honestly get tired of searching after a couple of minutes. So my idea was to have a site where you could just place keywords of what you were searching for like vintage dresser, desk chair, etc and the location you were in and to just get emails when those items were listed. Well it exists and it’s called List Alert.
Once you log on you’ll be able to place alerts for whatever you are searching for. You can even but a min/max price you want for the idea and chose to only see items with images or items with and without images.
So cool. I’ve just been playing around for the past two weeks, but I really like it. Anyone else have success with it? What other craigslist tips do I need to know about?
