Most apartments in the U.S. are rented unfurnished, but even if you have a dorm room or a furnished rental, it’s a good idea (and helps with your adjustment to a new environment) to make your place as homey as possible, as soon as possible. Plants, pictures on the walls, and colorful throw rugs or pillows can help create a comfortable home space.
You can save money by buying used either at thrift stores, tag sales (otherwise known as yard or garage sales), or through online sources. See the Used Goods section of our shopping information.
