Fru-Gal Tip: Buy off of Craigslist!
We love Craigslist! If you're looking to buy higher-priced items, I would definitely recommend scanning your local Craigslist ads first. In 2009, while outfitting our nursery for our soon-to-arrive first child, we were able to find a crib, changing table, and rocking chair for under $50 total. We just bought our now almost 2 year old a big girl slide for a birthday present, costing $10 on Craigslist (originally close to $100). And in August, when we were renovating our newly bought home, we were able to find matching, like-new stainless steel appliances for $1500 total (microwave, oven, and fridge).
Working previously as an employment coordinator, I can also tell you that Craigslist is a great resource for job postings! Many employers are now listing their open positions on this free website.
