I recently got divorced. Was homeless with a newborn. That week I met a guy. He gave me his well furnished apartment, told me to keep the security deposit and asked landlord to lower the rent. And said, "Good luck starting over!"
You don't have to spend a fortune when furnishing your home. There are a lot of furniture pieces you can make yourself or by re-purposing used furniture. This will not only save you tons of money, but you also can customize you furniture as much as you like to have a stunning home as you've always imagined.
