Guide to Finding the Best Home Decor Deals in Your City

Written by Posted On Thursday, 04 September 2014 13:07

City living comes with a price, literally. You already may be tapping into your savings to pay rent and your loans aren’t exactly going away. But, you make the best of it. It’s time to move past the basic home decor pieces and move on to making your place really yours. Here’s how you can find the best deals throughout your city.

Deal sites

Sign up for deal websites, like Groupon, LivingSocial and Yipit to get updated on home goods stores that are offering discounts. You may find exactly what you’ve been looking for, but 60% cheaper.

Social media

You’re probably already tweeting about how you haven’t been able to spice up your apartment. Put those skills to good use by following local stores on social media for deal updates. You can also search for relevant hashtags and may even find profiles dedicated to local bargains.

Ask a friend

Maybe you have some shop-savvy friends you can get tips from – you never know until you ask. See if they know of any good spots for home decor sales and ask if they know when the best days to go are.

Local emails

Sign up to receive emails about local happenings in your area. You may find out about new stores that are offering grand opening sales, for example. Local sites will also typically send emails about deal events in the area.

Garage sales

Garage sales don’t always mean trash for sale. People in the city are constantly moving and trying to get rid of some extra (yet totally acceptable) stuff. Look up what garage sales are nearby in newspaper or online classified ads. Listings will typically say if there are home decor pieces they are selling.


Home goods, including furniture and decor, are one of the most popular items people sell on Craigslist. While you should be cautious of scams, this is still a good option for those hunting down bargains. Look carefully at items you’ll be purchasing and be sure you trust the seller before meeting with him/her.
