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. However, have you checked with places like rent to own stores, to see how much it would cost to rent furniture while you are there?

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.
