It is kind of funny some of the things you see on Craigslist. One that comes to mind in the free section is "Bag of mismatched socks". It makes me wonder how many are legit and how many are just kids with nothing better to do.

Some of them are like "Come do my yard work for me and get FREE leaves for your compost pile!"

Would anyone ever get a used mattress? There sure are plenty of them on CL. I can't see myself using one. I wonder why. I use the used ones at the hotel / motel but I guess it's because I don't have much of a choice.

How stupid! Everyone knows you can't sell them, you have to give them away! Or pay someone to take them.

Yes, judging by the picture, they were tomato stakes.

Oh, you didn't say that the child was a baby. That's different.

Earlier this week I would have let our 15 year old go for a bargain basement price!

My unscientific informal survey of Craigslist in my area reveals these items as the most popular in the "Free" section:

1) Old matress and box springs
2) Hot Tub -usually non-working
3) Old style big screen TV -working and not
4) Broken concrete
