Furnishing Your First Apartment

My very good friend had to leave her home in a great hurry. When she and her young daughter arrived to stay with me, she had some clothes for them both and very little money.

When the time came for her to move into her own place, I placed a "Wanted" post on my local Freecycle.org group and also on Craigslist.org, explaining what she and her daughter needed and why.

Within 1 week, we had everything she needed to furnish a 2 bedroom apartment: 2 beds, a kitchen table with 4 chairs, a sofa, pots, pans, silverware, dishes, cleaning supplies, light bulbs and lamps, bedding, towels, bookcases, coffee table, desks, and a TV and DVD player. Nothing matched but everything was clean and in very usable condition. She gradually replaced things as she could afford to and in turn passed the items she received on the same way.

I've recently read several books on the aforementioned topic. I believe they are helpful to everyone, because no matter if it's our first residence or not, we all get desire to start over from time to time.
