Are you looking for a new pet, apartment or job? Craigslist is the go-to place for online local classifieds.
You can find or post ads for just about anything - mostly for free. A nominal fee is required for job or apartment listings.
The "for sale" section has the most useful information and lots of stuff for sale. Don't be afraid to check out the free section, either. Many people are giving away great furniture or used electronics.
You'll also find discussion forums, personals and event announcements. If you have a skill or service to offer, you can post about that, as well.
