Craigslist 201

You are advancing little ones.

We have went up a level in our Craigslist knowledge.

Get it?

We were 101 and now we are 201!!

Whoop whoop!

So far…….

You now know how to look and have little pictures show up with each listing

AND

You know how to search in a broader spectrum for a specific item.

(That sentence made me sound smart…didn’t it?)

Broader spectrum…….

Dang…..I’m good.

Anyways……

Let’s step it up a notch.

Open your Craigslist window on your browser so you can see what I’m talking about.

Open it……

I’m not stupid.

You have NOT opened your other window…….

You are just reading this and being blatantly disobedient.

I’m for real.

Open it.

Ok, then…..I won’t tell you.

That’s right…..there you go……open it up.

I feel so “teacher-ish”

Ok…….look at the text in the area in which you are searching…..

It looks like this. (Unless you don’t live in Wilmington….)
____________

wilmington, NC craigslist > furniture – all
furniture: by-owner | by-dealer | both 
____________


If it looks like this……where the word both is in bold and black.….then by owner and dealer ads will show.






If it looks like this……..
_____________


furniture: by-owner | by-dealer | both
_____________

Now….by owner.…..is in bold and black…….

It weeds out the dealers.

Only “for sale by owner” ads will show up.

That is the way I search.

Just click on how you want to search……..

WAH LAH!

Alot of you may like to see what the dealers are offering…….

BUT

How can I put this??????

Ummmmmm……

I AM TOO CHEAP.

Know what I’m saying?

It’s my moms and dads fault….“seven child syndrome” is what I call it.

Honestly, I have searched both ways but I can 100 percent tell you……I HAVE NEVER BOUGHT A STEAL OF A DEAL FROM A DEALER……

So…….if I want to find the newly listed deals.

I weed out the dealers.

I am sorry Mr. and Mrs. Local Dealer. Or Mr and Ms….Or Mr and Mr…..Or…..well, forget it…….

Sometimes, I search under both….but for a quick browse of new ads to “catch the deal”…….

I weed ’em out.

Still with me?

Helllllloooooooo????

Is this sooooo boring?

Please tell me if it is!

I mean….I’m not going to stop what I’m doing…..but you can tell me if you are bored. ; )

Don’t worry…..I don’t have that many tricks up my sleeve.

This can’t go on forever.

Only 747 more tutorials to go!


Woo Hoo!

Just teasing.

Wake it up buttercup!

Ok….one other tip for today.

That same section we were in above…..

Right under it…..

In the search section.

_______________

This part.

search for: in:
price:

_______________

Why don’t you try limiting your search by price?

I know for a fact that I won’t go for something really high….so I have my comfort level number….even though I know that isn’t what I will end up paying for it ; )

So….to catch the new stuff……limit your search.

Dang, people………

This info………….

Priceless.

If I were you and reading this and gaining SO much knowledge….I would follow me on facebook….like me and share me, sing it from the mountain tops, and  invite me to your family reunions!

That is what I would do.

Ok…maybe I wouldn’t.….but you can if you want.

Hey…..

Off the subject………

You canNOT imagine where I am sitting and typing this.

I plan to share it later.

But it’s class time now….and I’m in teacher mode.

Except I’m eating frozen pizza and in my pajama’s………

So…nuff said…..

Will talk to you tomorrow…..

Let me know if any of this stuff is helpful.

I love hearing from you guys!

Later alligators.

Love,

Me

    Love the tutorial. I’m the kid with his head down on his desk though. Not much attention span I guess. Blame it on all the Twinkies I’ve eaten over the years. Don’t know why you’d blame Twinkies, but what the hell!!
