I have had a small frig which works just fine but it was small for a family of five so this weekend dh saw a free side by side frig which was bigger than what we have now but unsure what was wrong with it it turns our it was an ice maker issue but that won't be a problem since we have well water and won't use that feature anyways
so I also got an older trash compactor that works for free as well
the frig was a huge victory seeing that is was only a few years old

my dh is self employed and the type of work he can do is limited so craigslist has become a good source of income for him
today is is off to pick up a dual recliner couch unsure what condition/ pet issues so we will either replace our couch or resell it
a few days ago he got a washer/dryer so he will repair those to resell

the couch was much nicer and better than what I had so we are keeping it and getting rid of the old one

I found checking craigslist several times a day as time allows or dh will check more often we seem to be able to get stuff we need all the time
also the local freecycle is another one I check often

I have been in too many situations that I was stuck without something for weeks because I could not afford it at the time so now I just keep watch and know if we would use it in the near future

the couch we had was needing replaced since October but I was not buying new because of the kids and there ages so I kept watch on craigslist and freecycle until I found something I liked or would work
