It is always possible to save a lot and get affordable living room sets, especially if you know some tips of successfull shopping. Before you start your shopping “tour” it is highly recommended to make a list if things you DO really need to buy. Avoid buying the stuff which is not included into your list. Decide to yourself if you want only new stuff, or used furniture of good quality is acceptable.
When you feel OK with thrift stores, flea markets, garage sales, spend a week-end or even two week-ends for visiting all these places where you may possibly find your affordable living room furniture. When shopping online, but choosing used units from Craiglist and Ebay, try to contact with the seller personally. Always remember that the price for a used item is negotiable.
Even if you have enough cash with you (as garage sales and Craiglist units are mostly offered for cash), you may ask for a discount and for the best price which the seller asks for. never forget that even the cheapest furniture which seems to you a great deal should fit your room, match your walls and your home interior. It should be easily combined with the furniture units you have already. Never refuse from sturdy, but unpainted furniture units. You will paint it as you like – the main thing you should pay attention at is the unit’s quality, lack or presence of damages and its durability.
