Craigslist Secret Search Tips
Craigslist can seem overwhelming and time consuming, so when you begin to search for furniture or home items on the site, use these tips to help diminish time and increase effectiveness:
1. Click on the “Furniture” Link in the “For Sale” Section OR use the search box to find a specific item
Find what your looking for more quickly
2. Once you have a list of results, you should click on “By Owner,” right above the Search box near the top of the page. This will narrow your results even further so that you don’t see a ton of mattress ads from some local shop ; )
No on wants to see the same mattress ad 5x in a row!
3. Click on “Gallery” view, which is right below the search box, so that you can see photos of items being sold as you scroll through the results so that you can make quicker decisions.

4. To specify your search even further, decide on what you are really interested in finding. Looking for a dresser? Type “dresser” in the search box, type in a “Max Amount” (that you are willing to pay) in the corresponding box, check the “title” box (it will only search the entry titles and not everything written in the post), then click the search button.
Use “By Owner,” “Max price,” and “Title” to cut down search time!
