A Win-Win Craigslist Deal

My daughter recently came across an ad on Craigslist offering a variety of items for sale, of which she only wanted some of them. She contacted the seller and set up a time to see the stuff. After looking the items over she made an offer for just the things she wanted and the seller said she could have everything for that price because she was tired of trying to sell it and just wanted it all gone. It was stuff my daughter could use, so she took it all.

It was a win-win situation because my daughter got a great deal on what she wanted, as well as getting some bonus things, while the seller made some money clearing out all their unwanted stuff.
