RULE 1.

Never pay full price.

GLT Magazine - - Habitat -

Mov­ing into a new home can be ex­pen­sive, es­pe­cially if you have re­cently pur­chased you own, or are mov­ing out for the first time. Es­sen­tially, you are pur­chas­ing ab­so­lutely ev­ery­thing you need for an en­tire house so it's un­der­stand­able that things might start adding up! Not pay­ing full re­tail price is a great way to start man­ag­ing costs, and there are some great op­tions avail­able to help you do this.

There are two op­tions here, the first is a sale, there seems to be one every 3-6 months, so patience can pay off in div­i­dends here, or, sec­ond­hand. Check out Gumtree, Face­book ads and lo­cal clas­si­fieds for good qual­ity pieces in hard wear­ing, easy to clean ma­te­ri­als. I wouldn't rec­om­mend buy­ing a sec­ond­hand mat­tress or sofa. Stick to solid pieces that can cope well with a bit of de­ter­gent and wa­ter!
