10 Ways to Use Craigslist Over the Holidays

The Complete Idiot's Guide to Making Money with Craigslist

I thought I'd send a reminder along about all the ways craigslist is useful for the holidays. It's a great place to shop for unique gifts, make some money, give back to the community, etc.


1. Feel good by giving back. Find holiday volunteer opportunities in your community. (community -- volunteer)

2. Share a ride and split the gas with someone who is also traveling across state for X-mas. (community -- rideshare)

3. Sell or trade the gifts you don't want for gifts you do. (for sale)

4. Donate things you no longer want or need. Someone would love your old TV, desk, mattress, backpack, etc. (for sale -- free)

5. Hire a string quartet for a holiday get-together or a DJ for your New Year's Eve party. (services -- event)

6. Rent a vacation home and have a long, relaxing New Year's weekend by the fireplace. (housing -- vacation rentals)

7. Get holiday meal ideas. (discussion forums -- food)

8. Take a yoga, karate or crafting class one afternoon and escape your football obsessed family. (community -- events)

9. Buy holiday decorations—garland, ornaments, even a tree—on the cheap. (for sale -- household items) (for sale -- collectibles)

10. Hire a photographer for your holiday party OR offer up your cooking skills for someone else's holiday party. (gigs -- creative)
