Craigslist: 21st Century Classifieds
Use Ann Arbor’s page on craigslist to find a job, an apartment, or an antique, milk glass parlor lamp (see photograph) and more. You can look for love on the personals pages, and even post messages on the missed connections page, in hopes of recreating the special moment from last Tuesday with that super cute barista at Starbucks on State and Liberty.
Craigslist is user-friendly and no frills, and best of all, it’s free. You don’t even have to register with them to send or read postings (hello, annoying digital camera picture websites!), and a flagging system helps keep out the inappropriate and sneaky commercial stuff. Craigslist can even be entertaining—check out best of craigslist for reader-nominated posts of variable merit—everything from misspelled rants to stunningly off-target personal ads.
