Got A Treadmill For Only $20!


I belong to a few local Facebook groups that are geared towards buying, selling, and trading. People post their wares on the groups in the hopes others will buy. If I have a few extra dollars, I'll check out recent posts and see what good deals I can get my hands on.

Sunday evening someone in one of the groups posted a treadmill for sale for only $20. When I saw the price, I figured it was either ancient or broke. I've never seen a decent treadmill sell for that cheap. I was one among many who inquired what was wrong with it and why it was selling at a low price. The owner replied that she wanted to clear it out of her garage and the first person who came and got it that night could have it.

I messaged her back, then gave hubby directions to her address. He hightailed it out of our home and straight to hers before someone else could take it out from under us.

I'm always on the lookout for deals or bargains, and consider this treadmill to be one of my best finds. There's absolutely nothing wrong with it, and there's computer settings to record calories, speed, and distance.

I'm stoked to burn some calories with this fine piece of fitness equipment. And I promise, I won't use it as a clothes hanger.

That is a really good deal! A steal, really! The last one we got was $200 off of Craigslist.
