Craigslist Scavenger Hunt

I have a little routine everyday that I go through once I get to work. If I don't do it, I feel like I haven't accomplished anything. I start by going through my google reader, which is getting quite large. I usually have about 300 items to read every day. After that, I do my craigslist scavenger hunt. This is my list.



I found both of my farmhouse tables this way. Because, let's face it--craigslist can be hit or miss. So this list reminds of stuff that I need. Okay, stuff I want. I also try to keep it fairly vague, in the hopes that I'll find something pretty awesome.

Do you have an iPhone? There's an app called CraigsPro that I really like for hitting all of my daily searches: it keeps up to so many searches saved and it shows the photo in the preview. I have the free version and it meets my needs...I think maybe the pro version allows you to save favorites.
