10 Things You Can Do When You Have a Limited Budget to Furnish Apt.

So you're having trouble furnishing and decorating your place due to limited finances?  Well you are not alone.  Many people on the streets and elsewhere appear like they have their lives together, but try going home with them.  You will see their practically empty dwellings while driving around in very expensive automobiles.  So what to do when you are short on cash but really need furniture? Well you won't be encouraged to go into debt here, rather look for practical ways to obtain needed items until you are better able to accommodate your desires.

1) Share need with family, friends, local church, etc.
2) Start visiting flea markets, yard and garage sales.
3) Post an ad requesting your specific need.
4) Start up a crowd-source campaign and share with online friends include pictures of your empty space and ask for donations (or set up a party and ask loved ones and friends to come over with house-warming gifts).
5) Check out discount stores like thrift shops and budget friendly department stores.
6) Drive around neighborhood on garbage day to see any items that you can bring to life with a little paint and some nails.
7) Take a look at items you already have and recreate them into more useful pieces of furniture. For instance, if you need decor, consider what eye-catching items are not being used possibly still tucked away in a box and hang up or sit on shelf.
8) Join social networking group for inspiration.
9) Trade items that you are no longer using with someone who might be able to use them in exchange for needed furniture.
10) Sort items you don't need and sell online or offline. Use money toward your savings plan for future furniture.

Now that you have a list to consider, start working on your plan to get your items today for your apartment.

To your success with furnishing your place!
