Finding Cheap Furniture for students
Everything is quite expensive in Australia under part-time salary or when you are living under allowance. So buying new furniture can be considered luxury and might not be wise because you are going to eventually leave it when you finish the study or moving out of the country.
The best way to look for a great bargain is scouting for a used furnitures, which is very cheap and mostly are still in decent shape.
The main reason of the cheap reselling value is because people are paying more money to discard the item, so selling it is a better option here.
One of the best place to find used furniture is via online or internet. The most popular website is gumtree, and if you are lucky, some owners are selling away a set of furnitures and if you are getting them altogether, usually they will lower the price even more.
The other option is the garage sale in the suburb or nearby your area, which mostly happens on weekend.
And the final option is to get your furnitures from budget shops like Kmart, Aldi, or reject shop. Even bigW will have their sale from time to time. Just keep an eye out and you will find the best deal you can get.
