College towns get more stuff in their thrift stores than others. At the end of semesters It's incredible what kids get rid of, just throw away. they don't pay for it so it has no value, mom & dad bought it all.

I can't even see the article - blank page. I hope thrift stores, craigslist ads, etc are mentioned though.

People constantly sell their furniture for nothing while moving. It's a buyer's market. No better way to buy furniture frugally.

lots of people move and give stuff away for free. Maybe try to check the local paper, or facebook for swap/shop kinda pages. Sometimes you can find really good deals on them.

Yeah do the thing this article immediately brushes aside- craigslist, secondhand stores, etc. I've had fantastic luck at Habitat for Humanity stores. They had a lot more furnishings than I expected.

Own (edit: or borrow) a small truck, find out which days garbage collection in your area allows the disposal of large items, wake up earlier than the garbage trucks guys.

Look for any wholesale furniture stores in your area, or something like that. I have this store that resells old hotel furniture at super bargains, and it's pretty great. It's up to chance to find something that I like and goes with the rest of my furniture, but that's true anywhere you go.
