Craigslist is one of my absolute favorite sites on the web for finding something I need and selling something I don't. Here are some of the most useful links at Craigslist:
- Craigslist.org: this is the main starter page of Craigslist. Every city represented on Craigslist is here, including but not limited to:
- Craigslist Jobs: The best jobs can be found easily at Craigslist. All you need to do is find your city, then click on the job category that most interests you. Many job specialities are represented here, including non-profit, technical support, education, and more.
- Craigslist Real Estate: Again, all you need to do is click on the city that you're interested in and find the "real estate" link. Many, many homes are bought and sold here.
- Craigslist For Sale: My favorite part of Craigslist. I've bought and sold two couches here, a truck, and pet supplies, all for far less than what I would've spent in the store.
- Craigslist Discussion Forums: Talk about anything from housing to politics. The discussions here can get pretty heated, but I've found them to be sources of great information on various issues.
- Best of Craigslist: some of the most interesting Craigslist postings can be found here. Not for sensitive or younger readers.
- Craigslist Fact Sheet: get a quick overview of Craigslist and what it can do for you; includes interesting statistics and background information, for instance, did you know that "more than 10 million classified ads per month"?
There's also a couple of very interesting Craigslist map mashups that are worth noting:
- HousingMaps.com: Via Craigslist and Google Maps, find a house for sale or for rent in your area.
