Set a budget. Furnishing a home can get expensive, very quickly. Dont let the credit card bill surprise you at the end of the month. Allocate more money towards the major pieces such as sofas and beds. If you need to pare down your spending, start with the smaller items that dont need to be as sturdy.
Do you know someone that is about to move? They may be looking to sell larger items of furniture, rather than having to move them. This can be an excellent way to get cheap furniture. Sometimes, you may even get their old furniture for free!
If you are looking for new furniture that has cushions, try to find ones with firm cushions and removable covers. Firm cushions will last much longer than softer ones. If the cushions have removable covers, check to see if they are machine washable. Your furniture will look good for a much longer period of time if you can wash the cushions.
