It's a recession, people are willing to do things they might not have a few years ago in order to save some extra cash, and some of the best examples can be found on Craigslist.
Take this guy for instance. He wants to live in Vancouver, but knows that he can't realistically afford a house on his own. So instead of paying his rent in one of the conventional methods, he's proposing a different kind of arrangement. It's borderline genius.
Serious offers only please.
