As a Professional Organizer, it is my job to help clients get rid of excess and use what they have effectively. But sometimes you NEED items for your home space. And I’m all about being frugal when you shop. I am going to share a few places that I’ve found that are great for shopping on a budget.
Craigslist– YES Craigslist! It still boasts some great deals and a wide variety of items to choose from. People are always selling something. Incredibly I found a person who was GIVING AWAY all of their potted plants and bushes. Seriously those things can get expensive.
Etsy- I have friends who sell on Etsy. You can get really specific in your search too. “Restored 1930’s Lounge Chair,Brown”
Apartment Therapy– It’s a great blog that features tips as well as shopping.
Yard/Garage Sales- Wake up early Saturday morning, grab some coffee and drive around! I just purchased a cool Vanity Muse Chair for $10.00. In great condition.
