The Wonder of Craigslist Pt. 2

I've become slightly addicted to Craigslist. As I mentioned in a previous post, I've been visiting some of the forums, and I'm continually amazed at the stuff I see. It's like an ever-improving cultural encyclopedia -- for example, I learned that "420" is slang for marijuana (did everyone know that already?).

I've been looking in Craigslist's Wanted forum to see if I can unload any of my crap before I move. I also found this useful city-maintained Web site, which lists items accepted by various New York City nonprofits. You can donate your furniture to Furnish a Future, a free furniture bank for formerly homeless families. Other organizations accept everything from school and art supplies to bikes to tools.

I've known people to donate their vehicles instead of selling them or trading them in so you can claim it as a deduction.

I knew about the 420 thing--on April 20th, apparently, people celebrate by smoking up.
