Finding Free Furniture

I just moved in a new house and I do not have any living room furniture. Where can I find free furniture?

Almost all areas have Salvation Army Thrift Stores, if not in your town, nearby. Go to their church office and prove that you need free furniture and they will give you a voucher to take their thrift store and if they have living room furniture they will give it to you. However, be prepared because most places that give free furniture won't deliver it, you have to be able to transport it. It also won't be anything in great condition, because they have you pick from the least good items. You also won't get anything like a TV or stereo system. I would suggest asking your pastor if he knows anybody in the church that has some old furniture they want to get rid of. That way they might even be willing to haul it to you. Didn't you have a living room before? Actually in a pinch you could get by with a couple inexpensive bean bag chairs. or use your dining chairs and until you get on your feet you could use things like large rubbermaid totes for tables, and if you don't like the way that looks you could cover them with cloth. By using these you are combining usefulness with storage.

Check Craigslist in your area to see if anyone wants to get rid of furniture. Does your town have a bulk trash pick-up day when residents can put out large items? Drive around the night before to see if anything good can be salvaged.

freecycle.org for your area, or craigslist on the free section.

You can also try here: http://www.freecycle.org/ and find your state and city (or city closest to you) It's a group dedicated in instead of filling up landfills with stuff they don't want, they try and find it a new home. Good luck!
