Craig's List

I sold on Craig's List for the first this week. Brilliant. Sold an old table and dishwasher in a matter of days. Classifieds are the optimal way in the "story of stuff" because things are being shuffled around from those who don't need it to those who do. It's the ultimate form of recycling.

I also noticed how nice it was to interact with random people in the community. In the two transactions, I always shook someone's hand and got a small piece of their story. I have several close friends and family who are always befriending strangers anywhere they are, whether it's with a smile or an entire conversation which has sometimes continued to extended friendships. Now, I have a better understanding of why.
