Default How do you Craig list?

Ok, I'm sick to death of seeing all the great things you all find on CL.
I never see anything worth buying and decided it must be because I don't know how to search properly. So how about some tips. What words do you use to search with? Do you put comas between words to cover more search area?
Help a dude out willya?

I go to my local Craig's List and click on the "For Sale" heading and then in the "search" box I type in "grill", or "weber", or "smoker" or....

I use this...

http://www.crazedlist.org

I have a bookmark for:

Big Green Egg
Smoker
Weber
Kamado
BBQ

Each bookmark searches

Gainesville
Ocala
Tallahassee
Pensacola
Tampa
Orlando
Space Coast area
Daytona Beach
Jacksonville

Every morning I open each bookmark and look at the last day's stuff. I'm sure there are other ways but this works for me.

I simply search for BBQ, Barbecue, Barbeque, Weber, and Big Green Egg on seperate searches. I've never tried using them all, seperating with commas. I'll hit the KC Craigslist about once or twice a week while I'm sitting at my desk eating lunch.
