How to post things on Craigslist

Craigslist is a nationwide forum where you can find and post items for sale or for free.  A friend recently found a washer and dryer in excellent condition for a much reduced price.  I have a family member who sold a flat screen tv.

The great thing about Craigslist is that there are no fees and you don't ship your items.  Everything is arranged between the 2 individuals (buyer and seller) including where to meet and how much to pay.

***Word of caution:  If you are nvolved in a transaction, you should always arrange to meet in a public place where you can meet the other individual involved.  Safety should always be a first priority.

Posting items on Craigslist:
  1. Click here to start.
  2. Pick your location.
  3. Choose your category.
  4. Click on Post in top right corner.
  5. Choose your next sub category.
  6. Type your title and description.
  7. You will need to give an email address to use for correspondence.  (You can make it anonymous so the public will not see your email address.)
  8. Proof your post.
  9. Agree to terms and conditions with a click.
  10. Type verification word
  11. You will get an email asking you to verify your post.
