Tips On How To Buy Cheap Furniture

If you’ve recently moved to a new house, and you have little or no furniture to your name, you’re probably looking for a way to get some cheap furniture, which still looks good in your new place. Here are a few tips to ensure you get good quality furniture, while working within a reasonable budget.

Shop Online

You are likely to find a vast variety of furniture, on a vast array of online furniture sites. When compared with purchasing the same piece of furniture at your local furniture store, you will find it is usually much cheaper to buy online. Shopping online also gives you an opportunity to visit a number of online stores and compare the prices, without the hassle of driving to multiple showroom floors. You can also find some unique and interesting buys online as compared to a retail furniture store.

Watch Out for Furniture Clearance Sales

Most furniture stores have a clearance sale at least once every year. They offload a lot of furniture that they were unable to sell during the year at almost half the price. If you are looking to find good quality, affordable furniture, then this is definitely the way to go. Look for cheap outdoor furniture and other seasonal items during winter clearance sales.

Go To Storage and Warehouse Auctions

When people are unable to pay for storage charges, the storage companies usually sell off the contents of the storage containers to recoup this amount. If you are looking to get some cheap living room furniture, this is one of the easiest and cheapest ways to do this. You are likely to find some unique, antique furniture that would cost you a fortune if you bought at a furniture store.


Visit Yard Sales and Garage Sales

Most people throw away or sell off their old furniture when they are moving or when they’ve bought some new things. This furniture may not necessarily be worn-out and with a little cleaning or some new upholstery, can be brought back to a like-new state. This is another excellent way to get low-cost furniture without working too hard. Look for these sales in well to do neighborhoods, as they are more likely to have better furniture.


Shop at Thrift Stores

Depending on the kind of donations that have been recently received, you can find some really great furniture at your nearest thrift shop. The price is usually a fraction of what you would have bought it for in a retail furniture store. You can often find cheap patio furniture at stores like these, but stay away from beds and mattresses as these tend to be lower quality and could possibly have bugs.

Watch Out for Ads for Furniture Store Liquidations

If a furniture store is going under, or is being liquidated, sometimes they place ads for sales online or in your local newspaper. This is a great way to get those modern accent chairs that you have been looking at but were out of your price range. If you are lucky, they may also offer free delivery, or even a buy one get one free deal.

Happy furniture hunting!
