    The best places I've found to get items on a budget

    are:



    Freecycle (free of course)

    Craigslist (sometimes free, often low priced items

    too)

    Goodwill



    Good luck!

    When we moved last summer, I did some mild redeocroating by shopping

    places like Goodwill, Salvation Army, St. Vincent DePaul, and yard

    sales. You can find some really nice items for only a few dollars.



    We didn't have room for a couch at our last place, so we didn't have

    one. About a month before we moved, I found a nice, stain-free tan

    couch for $35 at Goodwill. We had a garage, so we stored it in there

    for month.

    Ask on Freecycle.



    Check online at eBay and Craigslist.



    Accept donations from friends & family.



    Check the clearance racks at Target.



    Make a list of what you need and keep an eye out for them.



    Check the local paper/grocery store bulletin boards.



    Some "fancy" stores have great clearance prices. Check online at home

    retailers, overstock.com, linens & things, bed, bath & beyond, etc.



    Goodwill stores.



    Congrats on the move.



    We got several donated items when we moved into our home. Not exactly our

    style of decor, but it helps for the time being. We can change it out as money

    comes. We are also getting more and more projects done DIY.

    try yahoo group freecycle in your area, or salvation army, or a

    community church or place that donates household goods. Most places

    that offer free food for the needy, sometimes they have them for free.

    Don't over look Big Lots if there is one in your area. I get boxes of name brand cereal for my son all the time for less than $1.00 a box. They also are the cheapest on cleaning supplies and have better quality than the dollar stores.

    The nice thing about geting things from Goodwill, Salvation Army,

    etc. is that the cheap 1940's coffee table is WORTH $$$ I wouldn't

    say that my mom made a habit of frugal living. She was just cheap. I

    hated wearing Goodwill clothes and K-mart fall apart shoes growing

    up. I wanted to go shopping at the mall like all my friends. I never

    understood why we didn't have much growing up but the necessities.

    That is, until I started my own family. I "inherited" my in-laws, a

    step-son and gave birth to our daughter all int he first year we were

    married. I was 21!! I can feed 6 people with leftovers on $100-150

    per week. My mom wonder's how I can do it!!! She spends that much for

    3 people!!! Anyways, back to the point. Back in October, her porch

    caught on fire and burned the living room and the kitchen. They were

    lucky to get out with their life, since their bedroom is right above

    the living room. In the aftermath, they had to itemize their

    possesions that they lost to the fire or smoke damage that the rest

    of the house had. She listed the items, they listed the price. The 2

    leather topped 1940's end tables in the living room she paid $20 for

    were worth $350!!! The 2 harliquin prints that we had in the bathroom

    had bad smoke damage. Since they were a matching set and were

    numbered prints, we paid 50 cents each for them and the were worth

    $100!!! Over all, she was only halfway down the list of the bigger

    things that were damaged, the couch, the antique rollback chair, the

    solid oak dinner table and chairs, the telephone table, the

    collectibles that were in the built in curio, the desk that was my

    great grand-father's etc, and the insurance company told her that her

    possesions were already values at aver $160,000!!!! she only was

    cover'd for $80,000, so they just cut her a check!! So I guess what

    I've learned is that second hand isn't second loved. P.S. I also go

    the message that if disaster hits, it costs a lot more than you would

    think to replace your belongings. I adjusted our insurance policy

    after her misfortune, just to keep me covered for the emergency.

    Check your policy annually. You just never expect it.
