The Thrifty Apartment
You don’t have to sacrifice your budget, overspend and splurge on expensive items to please your guests.
- Style and Design - Decide on a Budget - Know your Audience
Now let's get into the best ways to furnish on a budget
Facebook Marketplace, Offerup, and Nextdoor have all types of treasures that people are trying to get rid of – some used, others brand-spanking new. Shopping on these platforms can be a great way to find unique pieces that may add character to your space.
Thrift Stores have lots of unique finds and hidden gems. Most thrift stores have a home decor section that sells furniture, pottery, art, bedroom, and bathroom items for the entire home.
Shop Clearance Sections - Don’t be afraid to shop the clearance aisles at your favorite department stores.
Find a Dupe - If you see designer pieces of furniture from Serena and Lily or other high end brands, theres a good chance that something similar exists with another brand for a much cheaper price. Shop around the internet to find dupes.
