We have traveled to a new job and this time there are no furnished places to stay. We will only be here 3 - 4 months. I have rented a small apartment and am looking for ideas on "disposable" furnishing or for cheap ideas. I did find a pattern for a foot stool made out of a 5 gallon bucket that I can store stuff in when we pack up to leave. Any other ideas would be welcomed.
For a table and chairs, you could use a card table and folding chairs. There are inexpensive futons and bean bag chairs. Use air mattresses for beds, for dressers use those plastic carts with drawers.
If you have a freecycle group post on there too.
Goodwill is another option. Good place to get rid of things when you leave as well.
Try Craigslist.com for your area. I have bought cheap things there and then you can resale them on the very same website for free.
What about those folding all -in-one picnic table and chairs that can be taken with you when you move again and used later for "real" picnics? with a few packing cases or banana boxes covered with cloths, you have your dining area sorted! Vegetable racks can be used instead of a dressing table. There are some real pretty ones available.
