With the rise of inflation and rent, it can be tough to furnish your apartment. There are many ways in which you can furnish your apartment for little to no money at all, so you don’t have to watch another Netflix show from the floor. Here are a few ways to furnish your new place cheaply.
Take a Walk
Before walking into a store, you should know what you need in the short term and what you can wait a little longer. If you live in a city, walk the streets. In big cities such as New York, London, Tel Aviv, and more, it is common to find absolute gems people have left on the street. As they say, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.
If you are constantly scrolling social media, why not make it more effective by scrolling through Facebook Marketplace? Here you can see local people selling different items, and you are bound to find something you may like, or even an item that you were about to purchase brand new, but a local neighbor is selling it for half the price. Our motto is always to check Facebook first.
Antiquing may sound expensive, but sometimes these stores and other thrift stores have trendy and cheap finds. Make sure you’re ready to haggle with the store owner for anything you may find. You can also utilize garage sales and flea markets—with a bit of help from the internet, and you can find these locations in a few minutes.
