Craigslist can be an excellent resources for finding everything from apartments to jobs . The hassle is that you can’t search every city on Craigslist at once. It makes the job really tedious. Crazedlist.org is a site that will search multiple cities but you have disable referrers in your web browser so Craiglist won’t know you’re coming from Crazedlist and block your results.
So the best option is to use Google search. Over at Wired.com they posted an article on how to use Google’s advanced search to find what you’re looking for on all Craiglist’s city pages. Its worth a read!
To search on Craiglist through Google Search:
1) Visit Google.com and click on Advanced Search next to the search box.
2) Type in your search term (s) into the box marked Find Pages that Have All These Words
3) Type in “directory”* into the box that is marked But don’t show pages that that have…
4) Type in “Craigslist.org”* into the box that says Search within a site or domain

Another option is to simply copy and paste the following into the Google.com search box with your search term in place of the words “your search term”:
It is possible to much of your grocery shopping online. But if you don’t live in a delivery area for one of the grocery stores that deliver, you still need to go to the market to get fresh items.
I hate grocery shopping. The very worst part is the unloading and putting the items away. But I also don’t like the actual shopping. I can’t find thing I need and almost always forget something.
Dave Cheong had a similar problem and he found a way to fix it. He created at the grocery shopping helper which is an online program that can help you organize your shopping trip by providing you with a list of all the items you buy sorted by the isles they are found in. No more back tracking or hunting. Simply take the list, mark the items you want to buy, and head straight to the store and isle.
You do need to do a little leg work before using the program by creating the list of items and visiting the store to find out what isle they are in. But once done, it could save you loads of time in the grocery store.
Its been said that humans use only about 10% of their brain capability. I think the same can be said for many software programs. I can word process, create a spread sheet and resize graphics, but there are so many other things that my software can do that I never use.

If you have been thinking about the freedom and flexibility (and the gas savings) that comes from working at home, consider adding the Work-At-Home Success Job gadget to your iGoogle start page.

To add the Work-At-Home Success Job gadget to your start page:

I’ve been slow to move to an online calendar system because they didn’t offer all the features that I had loved about Agendus. In particular, I like to have my to-do list on the daily calendar as opposed to being off to the side. Since moving towards a web-based management system, I was on the hunt for a calendar/planner system that worked the way I did. The answer came from adding Remember The Milk to Google Calendar.
Remember the Milk is a to-list management system that lets you list and prioritize your to-dos. You can send your self reminders via email, text or instant message. It also offers plug ins for iGoogle, Google Calendar, Netvibes, and a host of other services including mobile access, Jott, and more. Signing up is free and easy.
What I like about Remember the Milk versus other to-do plug-in options is that it can be listed on my daily calendar. At the top of each day that you have a Remember The Milk task you’ll find a check mark. Click on the check mark and drop down box shows you your list of to-dos. If you add your calender to your iGoogle start page, you can see your to-dos as well.
