Everybody likes getting great deals for Christmas presents..as evidenced by long lines and ridiculous scuffles on Black Friday. Some avoid the lines by shopping on Cyber Monday.
Others prefer to give items which they paid absolutely NOTHING for.
I saw on the web somewhere a list of some of the really crappy crappy stuff you can get for free on Craigslist, and most of those items were from places far and wide. So I decided to surf over to the free listings for Madison, and I found some pretty amazing things.
* From Oregon: 5 large 3-ring binders (Sorry Mitt, no binders full of women)
* From Mt. Horeb: antler plaques (just the wooden pieces that you attach deer antlers to. Apparently this year's hunting season was not successful).
* From Waunakee: Mini-pellet goldfish food (one 8.8 ounce bag). Lest ye think the worst--the goldfish (Oscar) is fine..he just prefers the bigger pellets.
*From Madison: Ripped blue jeans, adult size, lots of rips and holes. The more rips and holes the better, I say.
*From Madison: Small dog jacket, blue. "Fitted our beagle up to 1 1/2 years."
And my favorite free gift idea of all:
*From DeForest: 1967, sturdy, salmon colored toilet. (Catch it before it swims upstream).
