Craig list addiction


Ok i have to admit that i have become addicted to Craig's list, Have you used Craig's list?
So Sunday i got on there and saw were there was Pergo flooring for sale, used because the lady bought the house and decided that she had to have new and real flooring on her floor. So this is what she took out of her home and her mother wanted it to put in her home, but only to find that she didn't know how to install it and called someone who was going to charge her $700.00 to install it, highway robbery to old folks isn't it? Well anyway good for me as she put it on Craig's list for $95.00. I have been wanting wood flooring for some time, as having all my fur babies the floor is always getting barfed on, not a easy clean up at times. It would of cost us around $600.00 to buy new and then another $50.00 for the padding, still have enough to do the floor in the motor home as i want to get rid of that carpet.

So last week I got on there and I found someone that was just giving away 4 toilets, well thinking that these toilets were probably older than what we had here, but decided to look anyways, well come to find out these toilets were like brand new, what a find was that?
So I guess i better get busy and off of here and look again for something great and yeh now that i have a new floor i also bought some paint to paint the living room. LOL More work that I really don't like doing. Notice how Princess really loves the new flooring. Not too sure about the cats yet as they slip and slide when they run thru the house.

That's a great floor! I bet the cats look funny slipping and sliding all over the place! I haven't used that site, must have a look one day.

Pretty floor and a great deal. I should pay closer attention to our Craig's List.

I used Craig's list only once, looking for a temporary place to rent until I got in my place here BUT I use free cycle all the time to get things and give away stuff. Your floor is beautiful -- bet Nevada installed it!

$700 for installation!!! @_@ That would be actually sufficient to get another set of flooring :P

Great find!! Lucky you!! I love love love wood floors, especially with our kitty. In our old apt we had carpet and it was such a pain with hairballs. OMG, I'll never go back to carpet ever again!

I checked craigslist to find the duplex that we've been living in for over 5 years now. I use freecycle a lot, too.

Congrats on all your craigslist finds! Check out freecycle if you haven't yet.

The floor is beautiful. I have never tried Craig's List but have heard some wonderful things about it. I will have to check it out.

Cool! I have those laminated flooring in all our bedrooms :D

Beautiful floorings. Most of our homes are tiled because of the hot weather. We dont wear shoes in our homes and guests are not allowed to wear shoes in the house too. It is our culture. It would be seems impolite. You have a good bargain for the floor and free new toilets. :)

OH MaN!! That is a terrific floor. Congrats on getting an awesome deal on the floor!!

The Octoberfest weekend you told me about is the weekend of my Breast Cancer 3-Day Walk in Seattle.

When we went through Bend last week, we watched for a motel across from a Sonic's. We would have stopped had we found you to say hello. We never saw the sonic's.

I love Craigslist and have been using it for years. Glad you have been able to find some real treasures at a good deal. The floors look beautiful and looks like Princess agrees.

I am such a bargain-hunter myself, Lilli, so I know how good this felt for you! :)

Tootie said...

I absolutely love that flooring! You sure did get a bargain.

That has to be the cutest little dog I've seen, and the cat is huge. :-)

I enjoyed looking at all your pictures and would like to check in again to see your travel photos when you hit the road. :-)

Thanks for stopping by my blog and please come back anytime.

You and I are sisters at Craigs List heart. You really got fantastic buys here. We installed new flooring here, too so I KNOW what a good deal you got! Wow!!! I am very impressed!

The floor seems to have been made of wood in my eyes. They have got some nice designs. What is the name of the dog lying on the floor! I would suggest my cousin to check out for Craig's list.
