Buy from a resale store

There are many furniture consignment shops that offer quality used (and sometimes, new) furniture at a low price. These stores also have other decorative elements for a new house. Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore is a great example of a place where you can find good pieces at reduced prices.

Visit a lumberyard

Many pieces of furniture are possible to build yourself with minimal expertise by following instructions or tweaking existing furniture. Stop by a local lumberyard to ask about reduced or discounted wood you can get for a fraction of the price.

A lot of people don’t know what to do with their old furniture — so they end up selling it at low prices locally. If you don’t exactly love a piece, but it has good bones, it can be inexpensive to re-cover or re-finish existing pieces compared to buying new.
