Finding Free or Inexpensive Furniture?

I need help with bedroom and living room furniture. I have 2 boys. I'm a stay at home full time mom. My husband and I are financially struggling and can not afford to get any furniture.

Goodwill, Salvation Army, and such local thrift shops often have good used furniture that is donated to their organization. One good thing about these places is that they do inspect/sanitize the furniture before putting it on the floor.
Another suggestion I have is if you are a crafty sort, you can make all sorts of furniture and things with pallet wood and wood scraps if you would have some place local that is trying to find an outlet for disposal. This method requires a saw to cut the nails with and a lot of hand labor, but is quite rewarding. You can use this wood to make bed frames, living room furniture, bookcases, tables, etc.. pin terest has all kinds of ideas for this.

  • Try second hand shops you can find things cheap sometimes.
  • Post an ad on kijjijji, craigslist, and go on freecycle.

Try your local thrift shops, check on the internet or your local phonebook for the telephone number and ask if they have used furniture for sale. As the items are donated most of the time you can pick up a used bed or furniture quite cheaply.
