Have you heard about the site Zaarly where you can buy and sell items locally? You can also list a task that you need done or services that you do all within a local area. I’ve been looking for a handmade Kindle cover, so I listed what I wanted with the price I’m willing to pay and the area I’d like to purchase it from. This way I’m helping independent contractors earn money in my town where unemployment is at all time high.
Zaarly already has over $11 million dollars listed in over 200 cities, so they’re doing something right. Big cities have lots of listings, but I was able to find a few in my small podunk town. You can expand your search easily by changing the area, or keep it close to home by using cross streets.
The holiday season is bringing out people asking for Christmas trees, all types of gifts and even an ugly Christmas sweater! You’ll find some interesting and unique ideas on Zaarly, but be sure to follow the Marketplace Rules for safety and saving yourself from getting scammed. If there’s a listing you see that you want for yourself, for example, hiring someone to organize your closet, it’s easy to add it once you sign up for Zaarly. There’s even an app for Zaarly to make it easier to list and answer your requests.

I wasn’t compensated for this post, but wanted to share about a service that is helpful and a way to raise money for Feeding America.
