Living off of Craigslist

Learn how to live off of only your computer!

Over the past few months, I've been finding different ways to hypothetically live off of Craigslist.

I'm obvioulsy not living off of Craigslist myself and no interaction has been made with posters on Craigslist. I've been looking for postings that I would choose if I was really living off of Craigslist. I've found a source of income, a home, and a car.

Why did I choose this project?

These days, it's hard to get a job and the world is a tough place. If you ever find yourself in a really bad situation, the most unappealing option, Craigslist could actually be a lifesaver.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Where did you get your idea?

A: I've always browsed through craigslist and I thought of the idea out of nowhere on the night before our project decisions were due.


Q: Has anyone actually done this?

A: Yes, on Netflix, there's a pretty interesting documentary called "Craigslist Joe." It's about a guy who lives off of craigslist for a month with nothing but his laptop and phone. However, he doesn't get a job for money; he just relies on the goodwill of people.


Q: Would you ever do this in real life?

A: I would only do it if I absolutely had to. There are a lot of weirdos on the internet and I'd rather not get chopped up into little pieces...

My Goals

My goal is to successfully "live" on Craigslist for the remainder of my senior yearwithout becoming homeless.
