Hand-me-down nabbing is a smart way to economize on costly household products. The only downside is to stake your claim on an item in good time, as these sites have become increasingly popular and that refrigerator you’ve been eying could get snapped from right under your nose!
If you suspect anyone who would give away their stuff for free, don’t be so. It taps into a simple and honest truth: the majority of people just want to get rid of their old things without having to pay to throw it out.
They don’t want to get rid of it themselves, either. You come along, snatch it out of their hands and hold it, and everyone is a winner (but you are the true winner, with your new chest of drawers of oak).
All great hunts to decorate small house with no moneyshould start at online websites.
Anything from dining room tables and beds to sofas can be found here, and on the proviso that you pick up the things yourself, everything is available to you.
It could be a little complicated if you don’t have a car, but where there’s a will there’s a way to bring you done.
Try and commit only to picking items you have already seen online. Most posts do have an image so you can stop the dodgy listings with a bit of nous.

Cheap bargain hunting
Look up home clearance section to find loads of sellers desperate to quickly sell off unwanted stuff, particularly now with the downsizing trend.
Prices aren’t set in stone so you might find yourself walking away with a real deal with a bit of haggling.
You should also check out stores offering great deal on household Items-Ikea and Argos are especially cheap.
Although the stuff is a bit simple, you can really build a polished and clean look when put together correctly.
A couple of pretty accessories will also make a huge difference-if you can get the bigger things on the cheap you’ll have enough left to purchase some stylish parts and bits to put the look together and make your pad look great!
