6. Shop at Thrift Stores or Buy off Craigslist

An easy way to find interesting or unique furniture and décor is by shopping at thrift stores or perusing Craigslist. You’ll most likely have to wade through some junk to get to the gems, but the savings will be worth it. Thrift store shopping can be overwhelming, so go with a specific look in mind that you want to match, or print out photos of pieces you like.

Craigslist is great too because you can haggle; most people just want to get rid of things. Pro tip: This is the best way to find cheap mid-century furniture, which is often built better and never seems to go out of style.
