Using the Classifieds
By Patti Hutchison
  

1     You can find almost anything in the classified ads. Newspapers in large cities have many pages of classified ads. Small newspapers may have only a page or two.
 
2     The classified section is where people and businesses advertise. They let people know about things that are for sale or rent. They tell about things that are lost or found. Finding what you are looking for can be confusing.
 
3     Classified ads are organized under major headings. Each major heading has a number. The index will help you find ads for the item you're looking for.
 
4     For example, say you want to buy a used car. The index says "Automotive, 200." This means that cars and trucks are listed under that heading. The ads are set on the page according to the heading number they are related to.
