Picks of the Week: Utah Classifieds

Let me tell you about my usual evening routine before I go to bed.

After watching whatever random show Andy and I are into at the moment (Bob’s Burgers or Chef’s Table) Andy forces me to brush my teeth, I force myself to wash my face, we plug our phones in, turn on our twinkly lights above the bed, lay down, and look at our phones for 15 minutes or so.

I know, you’re not supposed to use your phone in bed, and I know, it supposedly keeps you awake, but it’s the best time for me to squeeze in my favorite phone activity: Checking the KSL Classifieds App for new stuff!

Seriously, if you live in Utah, and don’t have this App you’re missing out. It’s basically just the classifieds, but it’s organized so well and it’s easy to find things/see pictures/send texts to the sellers. I wish Craigslist would make a similar app so you don’t have to use your browser.

I usually do a quick scroll through of the “Free” section to see if there’s anything I have to grab the next day, I add it to my favorites and make a note to shoot the seller a text the next morning.

Then I just browse, sometimes looking for something specific in the search feed like “rattan” “Velvet” “birdcage”, or I scroll through whichever section strikes my fancy that night.

There are some really good deals but I don’t have the money or the space to get everything I think is worthwhile.  So I decided I’d start posting the stuff I think others should know about here on the blog.  Maybe I’ll make it a weekly thing, though lots of things sell out by the end of the week, so who knows how that will work.

Without further ado here are my favorites from the last couple of weeks (click the images to shop).

Enjoy! and let me know if you snag anything!
