Craigslist is sometimes great.

Got this whole setup on craigslist for $300 from a really nice guy who gave my brother and I a lot of pointers on goose hunting. Sometimes being bored at work and messing around works in your favor.

This guy was having his first kid so he was creating some extra space. And the green grass is pretty nice other than it is growing to fast for me to keep up.

and sometimes people smoke crack while posting....like this guy that posted a 3hp outboard for $1000 claiming it would push a 14 footer low-20's with 2 people in it....

I've found some very good deals on it and try to check regularly. Two years ago I got a dozen goose floater, 4 dozen duck floaters and a brand new box of those NRA folding teal decoys for free. The guy was just getting rid of his excess since he bought new.

Actually the best deal I got was a bunch of blocks for free that a guy had been collecting to build a garage and changed his mind. Really sucked to hand load but I told my wife I couldn't' say now to $1500 worth of free bricks anymore than I could to $1500 in cash just sitting around waiting to be picked up. It cost about $300 worth of gas, trailer rental, and some pizza and beer for my buddies that came and helped.

They're long gone. I was going to use them to build an outdoor kitchen with oven and smoker but decided I didn't have time for that project so I sold them. Made about $1100 after my costs. Then I got hit with the wife tax of $500 and the wife maintenance fee of $350 (i.e. take the wife, neighbor, and neighbor's wife out to dinner and the bar to thank them all for their help again) and had just enough left over to cover the cost of building a hybrid NL V-hull duck boat.

Yeah, those wife taxes can be pretty hefty. I'm sure she claimed that when you bought the bricks to begin with, that you were indeed using her money in which to do so. Am I right or am I right?

You must be married. All of the money I earn is "our money" so she feels entitled to her cut...
