First, You will need to have a Craigslist account.
Once you’ve created the account, you’ll want to choose the city that is closest to YOU, so that you can list/look for items in your area. Most of the items for sale on craigslist requires you to drive to the location to purchase the item. Sometimes you can contact the seller to see if they will ship it.
Now, to the good part. This website Byebyelist will be your best friend when it comes to looking for items on craigslist. Just choose the city and state, the category, and how much you’re willing to pay for an item. This website SHOW the pictures to you – instead of you scrolling through the countless ads/list on Craigslist!
Once you’ve created a Craigslist account and learned how to use Byebyelist, you will need to look for a certain item that will be on sale for cheap. A good trick is to look everyday – find items for a decent price, contact the seller on craigslist, purchase the item, and RESELL it! Alot of people won’t know it either – I’ve been doing this for quite some time. Sometimes, you will find great deals on items that you can resell and profit for a few hundred dollars.
If you don’t have the money to start buying big items for resell, you can always start selling/listing your OWN items on Craigslist for money first! Good luck!
