5 Tips to Save on Furniture

Save on furniture

Buying furniture is a big expense for anyone, especially if you are forming a new household and hardly have anything. So any way you can save on furniture will help keep your budget in check. Before you buy your next piece of furniture, read our 5 tips to save on furniture.

Buy Your Furniture Online Instead

Whenever you buy from a physical store, you are paying for all the costs involved. Sure, you get to actually touch and see the furniture you want to buy. But if you are willing to forgo that luxury, the savings add-up. Most online stores ship from a warehouse or directly from the factory, so you won’t be paying for the costs of a physical store like overhead, salespeople, rent and more!

Make Sure You Look at the Shipping Costs

When people shop for furniture, they often forget to look at the delivery price. Make sure you examine the all-in price or ask for the delivery fee at any store before you shop.  Otherwise, you could be paying $150 or more than what you bargained for.

Check Your Local Classifieds

This is a great tip to save on furniture. The growth of Ikea and many other low cost furniture options means people often have difficulty selling furniture if they are moving, downsizing or upgrading. If you are comfortable buying from someone off of craigslist, you can save big. Many people will ultimately be happy if someone comes and takes it away for them, so having the ability to move your own couch will help. Also, don’t be afraid to barter on the original price.

Skip the Brand Names

Nobody cares about furniture brand names if they have even heard of them and neither should you. There’s no reason to pay more for a brand you’ve never heard of. So do a little research and see what furniture brands are known for better prices.

Warehouse Sales

If a business is looking to unload a lot of unsold merchandise to make room for new pieces, this is the perfect opportunity for you to save big on furniture. Check out local flyers or papers as these sales are often advertised and can pass on big savings.
