In my desire to go all-grain, and improve my beers, I've been scouring craigslist for weeks hoping to find someone selling a 10-gal Igloo cooler. After no luck, I went to OSH and was all set to buy one for $60. Then as I was walking to the register with the cooler in hand, I decided that I should check online one more time, and buy it tomorrow if I didn't find anything.
When I got home and started watching the Kings lose another game, I hopped onto craigslist on my cell, and what do I see? 10-gallon Coleman cooler for $10!
Picked it up the next day, and it was in great shape. Only problem was the spigot stained pink from red gatorade...but that was getting thrown away anyway. :)
