Quality office furniture usually withstands wear and tear over time. With companies downsizing or going out of business completely, you can easily find deals on filing cabinets, desks and even soft leather conference room chairs. Try looking for bargains on Craigslist or local classifieds.
Buying furniture for your home is extremely expensive if you purchase everything new. While we wouldn't recommend buying a mattress or couch secondhand, furniture pieces like an office desk, end table or TV stand is perfectly suitable to purchase used.
Another great tip is to haggle the price down, if you are trolling through Craigslist. As long as the offer is reasonable, many sellers are happy to move the item as quickly as possible.
