Garage sales and second-hand stores are where I usually go for furniture. It doesn't take much cash just to buy it. I throw it in the back of my pickup and take it home. Those old frugal habits die hard. Yes, I can afford to buy the stuff new, but it would hurt my heart to pay for something that is instantly worthless!I don't either. I mean I told them at the time, why don't you just save your money, and use lay away at k-mart or wal-mart, so you at least own your furniture, and not have to pay interest. That's just simple to understand. Save your money, and even if you don't have a lot of money, at least have materialism you actually keep versus watching it vanish.
My tenants don't see it that way. I have a retired veteran who is on public housing assistance and disability. She's a "preferred customer" of one of those furniture rental companies. Those cute young men from there stroke and flatter her ego all the time. I hope it's worth it to her. Go figure.
