If you know me, you’ve probably heard me mention Craigslist before. If you want or need something just visit Craiglist to see if someone’s got it. If you don’t see anything that you’re looking for post a request in the “wanted” category and someone is likely to reply.
Essentially www.craigslist.org is a free online classified system that works like a charm. It’s got everything from jobs to furniture, zebra-prints to cars. Make sure you choose “Vancouver” (or wherever you’re from) when you first get there – it’s on the right – otherwise your searches won’t be particularly relevant.
