The Great Jettison: Big Comfy Somethin'

This takes the grand championship for craigslist hits.  Maybe we priced it too low, but we were happy to have the quick sale and at-home pickup.

Besides, we had (that's had, mind you) another soft place to sit in our old love seat.  We got a lot of questions like "It looks great in the photo, what's wrong with it?"  The answer, of course, was "nothing."  We just are surprised by how much things on craigslist are marked up.  Used upholstered furniture should not be sold at premium prices, right?  Who knows what kind of shenanigans are going on in someone else's used couch.

Even though we were nice to it and kept it in a clean home, there is no telling what kind of risk a buyer is taking with an item like this.  What if we had bedbugs?  Roaches? Scabies?  Horrible rashes?  Athlete's foot?  Huge amounts of filth and garbage on the couch?  We didn't and don't, but it makes me shudder thinking about it.

Scabies aside, it was comfy and squishy for us during our entire occupancy in this home.

Moving out Thursday!
