A few months ago I was contacted about having an organizing expert come to my house for a one hour consultation, the person would then talk to me about Kijiji, eBay’s free, family-friendly, local classifieds site.
I agreed to this for two reasons. One, organization is really important to me, but I’m not really good at it, so any help would have been greatly appreciated. The second reason is that I loved the idea that there was finally a safe website for listing items to sell locally. Back in June I listed two couches on Craigslist, rather than being excited when people would respond to my ad, I found myself skeptical and actually scared by their responses. I trusted NO ONE. Especially to COME TO MY HOUSE. Every response came across as shady.
Rather than responding to the interested parties, I hid in the corner with my hands over my ears screaming “what I have done, I listed my couches ONLINE!! WE’LL NEVER BE SAFE AGAIN.”
Needless to say, I did not sell the couches using Craigslist. It was then that I read that people can actually sell sex on Craigslist and I thought “you know, maybe this place needs some work, some security and maybe I QUIT IT.“ (p.s. if you’ve used it and it was a good experience, that is awesome, I’m just overly paranoid, I’m sure.) (Not that I have anything against selling sex on online except that REALLY I DO.)
So, when I found out about Kijiji, I was very excited and instantly felt better just by visiting the website. And honestly, I wanted to tell all of you about it because obviously the more people who know about it…the better.
Posting on Kijiji is unbelievably simple and straightforward. I did it! It took just a few moments, LOVED IT.
To celebrate Kijiji and organization, I am giving away a $100 gift card to Organize.com which may be one of the greatest websites in the history of the world. I’m not kidding. If you go there be prepared to be inspired and also, be prepared to go broke because the laundry sorters, the closet storage, the kitchen organization, the office supplies…GAH! It’s beautiful. All of it.
And one of you lucky dogs will get ONE HUNDRED BIG ONES to spend in this glorious place. *cough*totally jealous*cough*
