Today my blog post is going to be short, sweet and budget-friendly:

Marshalls, TJ MAXX and HomeGoods are all great places to find amazing deals, however, there are plenty of other resources to find furniture and decorations on a budget.

The first place I recommend is your local dollar store. You would be amazed at what you can find: Lamps, frames, TV stands, throw pillows and storage units are just a few of the many items you’ll find at your local dollar store. Half of my frames and mirrors were bought at the dollar store across the street from me, Jack’s 99 Cent Store. You do need to hit it at the right time though. Don’t give up after just going once: You should try again a week later! The dollar store is constantly switching out their stock.

Another place to look for furniture and decor steals is Amazon: you can get a tufted couch worth over $1000 for just under $400 from multiple retailers on Amazon. AND if you have Amazon Prime there’s a good chance you can get your furniture delivered within 2 days!

The last suggestion I have is heading to Facebook Marketplace: It’s amazing what types of deals you can get on large pieces of furniture. It’s the cheapest resource to find high-quality furniture. It’s also one of the best ways to sell furniture if you’re trying to make room for new items for your home.

I hope this short post has been helpful and please feel free to leave any questions or comments in the comment section below! I’ll make sure to link all resources in the Shop section.
