You can use to create your custom searches and save them as RSS feeds. I have to give credit to Cali-V for reminding me of the RSS feature on

Here is how I went about it.

Click "Get RSS". You will see the following statement at the top of the page.

To get the OPML file right-click on this link to Save Link As.... when doing this you'll be prompted to save a file called index.cgi or index.xml or something, you can change that and name it something like "mysearch.opml" then import that into your favorite RSS reader that supports importing feed list.
  1. Right Click and save the file to your desktop
  2. Rename the file from index.cgi to index.opml
  3. Download and install Feed Demon
  4. Once installed, open Feed Demon and go to File\Import Feeds
  5. Select the 2nd option to "Import an OPML file"
  6. Browse to the location that you saved the renamed index.opml file
  7. Select "All" for the feeds you want to import
  8. Select the Destination Folder by selecting the "import all feeds into the selected folder below"
  9. Click Finish
  10. Now every time you run Feed Demon it will synchronize the RSS feeds with craigslist and show you all of the new posts that match your search criteria.
