I’ve been trying to declutter and straighten up in preparation for our India-going friends to stay with us a few days. My experience with Craigs List is that you can put out *anything* for free and it will go in a matter of hours, if not minutes.
Most recently, I put out a box of wire hangers, which were rapidly snatched up, and I got e-mails later asking if I still had them. I’ve gotten rid of kitchen utensils, ancient Martha Stewart magazines, and a random box of household “stuff.”
But my old Nordic Track cross-country ski machine, still totally functional, sits on the boulevard, unloved, unwanted, even by the scavengers who pick up the freebies and sell them at their own garage sales.
You can get people to come pick up your wire hangers, but not exercise equipment that would cost $100s of dollars. Go figure. Does everyone in the Twin Cities have unused home gym stuff at this point?
