I have found generally that I get things for far less than I would in a store or supermarket, when I buy on ebay. I just bought a stack of tissue paper for Christmas wrapping a heck of a lot cheaper than I would get it in town! I buy more or less everything there now (except if it's too big or heavy, and shipping would cost a lot)
Plus it's better than standing in queues! Plus it's better than having people with flu and colds cough all over you while you're shopping!!
I can definitely get things for less there. As long as I make sure I'm buying from someone reliable, and with good feedback, there are never any problems.
I do a lot of Christmas shopping at Overstock.com. Flat rate shipping and I can find some pretty unique things for a good price. Actually I bought my kitchen table from there and not only paid less than even Walmart.com, had it delivered for a whole $3.
Just be wary of where you meet the people selling stuff and when. People have been hurt by dishonest people through craigslist. I don't mean just financially hurt by scammers. I mean by people who have been harmed and even killed. It is wiser to meet the seller in a public place where there will be a lot of other people around. I'm sure that not everyone is like this, but this is something to be aware of.
