Illustration for article titled New (to me) Appliances via Craigslist

Our washing machine died. A feather pillow exploded in the wash and packed lots of inconvenient places with feathers. Then the drum wouldn’t turn and the belt burnt up. So I looked on Craigslist in bed last night, found this washer/dryer set and emailed the guy at around 10:30 pm. He replied and we exchanged a few messages and he delivered my washer/dryer at noon today. Craigslist can be good. Then the chore of installing them and fixing the dryer vent tube and all the other stuff I’d been ignoring for like twenty years. I even leveled them this time. And hung the mirror that had been sitting around for years and years. My exciting weekend.
