How I Love Thee, Craigslist (Let Me Count The Ways…)

cargo-cover.jpgSee the above photo?  The car that I have came with a missing cargo cover like the one pictured.  It's a pretty simple item, really... you pull it forward from the rear of the back seats, and it stretches over the cargo area to hide whatever is under it.  The dealer wanted over $700 for that item.  Over $700 for a cargo cover!  I decided to perform my own economic bailout and went to Craigslist.  Now, these babies are hard to find, but as luck would have it, someone else on the west coast had one, and was willing to ship it to me.  Their asking price?  $20.  Heck, it cost more than double that to ship it to me, but you know what?  $80 is much better than $700.  Now I can drive my hatchback car with the confidence that prying eyes won't be checking out those gigantic vats of pickles that I just picked up at Costco.  The start of my weekend just got a whole heck of a lot better.

I pulled one of those out of my rental car once and forgot to replace it when I returned the car. If you purchased a grey/blue Dodge Magnum from a rental company in Portland, I will gladly refund your $80 (and give you a spair cargo cover) :)
