Done: Remove Hot Tub

I am constantly amazed by craigslist. Not only is it a great place to find mid-century and vintage furniture, and pretty much anything else you might be looking for, it's also a great place to get rid of the junk you don't want any more.

For example, if you have a broken hot tub in your backyard and put it up for free to anyone who will disassemble it and haul it themselves, you will get multiple people wanting to haul that hot tub. Sure a half dozen or so will flake on you, but eventually someone will show and do all the work for you. Which is exactly what happened this past weekend.

It might help that I live close to a large university, because it ended up being four college-aged guys who finally took it away. And I'm sure they had some big plans to put it in their basement or on their deck or something equally silly, all I care is that it's out of our backyard.

However, now the yard looks even worse than it did with the tub in. I think it's time to put a craigslist ad up for the decking/boardwalk to see if we get any takers for that.


  1. It always amazes me that if you say "free" on Craigslist, you can get rid of ANYTHING. No matter what it is, no matter how horrible the condition, you usually have email stacked up from people wanting to know if it's still available. I'm sure you'll get rid of the decking as quickly as you did the hot tub.

    1. We had two people ask if they could take the decking because they could see pieces of it in a couple of the hot tub photos. Both flaked in the end, but I don't think it will be hard to get rid of. It's crazy how much people on craigslist love free stuff.
