During tough economic times, everyone is feeling the pinch. But, of course people still need to buy things and order services. As many of you already know, there is a terrific website called Craigslist.org which offers a plethora of resources: community, housing, jobs, personals, for sale, discussion forums, services, and gigs. I love the fact that you can specify your search to your own local area; however, you can likewise search any regional area you want from Spain to Ireland and all the way over to Chile.
The "community" category offers several resources ranging from local activities, childcare options, and ride-share; it even has a lost and found category. "Services" include offerings from beauty, financial, legal, and automotive to a variety of people offering specific lessons. Haven't you been dying to learn Spanish or French? If it's not currently offered in a posting, you can list it under "wanted" under the "for sale" category. Maybe you're ready to list your services as a math or science tutor. Perhaps, you're an accomplished violinist with some extra time for offering lessons?
