CraigsList Reader

Garage sales and CraigsList are wonderful when time permits. This application “CraigsList Reader” is free and takes the hassle out of searching. No more wasted time. A must have application!

CraigsList is one of the top visited websites in the world, but to gather information out of it is very challenging. Not any more. Now, all the information on that site is very easy to collect. Now it is very easy to get targeted information that is not based on demographics.

There are also programs for other sites that I am not aware of. Such as:
http://www.kijiji.com/
http://www.backpage.com/classifieds/index
They look much like CraigsList but I don’t have the time, desire, or inclination to check them out.

Perhaps the best way to look for things is to use these three programs using the email alert option? Then say if you are looking for that old Schwin Continental bicycle you grew up on you’ll be able to quickly suss out the going price or immediately buy one. I’m thinking I’d like to get a pencil sharpener too. A big heavy duty hand operated one. Do such things even exist?
