Cutting Expenses

Can I buy used items using the Internet?

Yes, in fact you can save from 50% to 90% of the price of the same item purchased new if you buy from someone advertising on your local site. The beauty of Craigslist is that it is run by a not-for-profit organization, charges nothing to post ads, and has nearly anything that you could want available within a short car ride away. It is a giant classified advertising marketplace/garage sale.

Cigarettes have become increasingly expensive, especially as governments add taxes to tobacco. Do your lungs and pocketbook a favor, and quit the habit today.
