Furnishing your new home doesn’t have to break the bank.

Use these tips to find great pieces that won’t run you dry:

  • Watch for garage and local estate sales. Your city’s newspaper is a great place to start.
  • Use the NextDoor app and Facebook marketplace. Neighbors may be selling items just down the street.
  • Hit up thrift stores and consignment shops. These are especially great for finding art and decor.
  • Know your area’s bulk trash day. Drive the neighborhood on bulk trash day to find any discarded furniture that could be rehabilitated.

You can also ask friends, family members and coworkers if they have unused furniture they’d part with.
