If I could give you just one Craigslist shopping tip, it would be have lots of patience. You might not find exactly what you're looking for, if you look just one time, but if you keep on checking, chances are that you will. If you're really persistent, chances are that you'll find it for even cheaper.
This was the case when I was looking for a white, slip-covered loveseat. I wanted something like this.
I was looking for a white one but it had to have a slipcover that I can take off and wash, after all, this is a house of boys. Everything I came across was between $200-$400 dollars. But I'm too cheap to spend that kind of money on a Craigslist loveseat. I was waiting to find one for around $100. Then I found this.
Do you want to know how much I paid for it?
FORTY bucks!!! 4-0!! It's in perfect shape. The couple I bought it from bought it from Ikea and were just using it in their home office.
Crazy, right?! Like I said, patience.
