While buying a new mattress and bed frame can be an intimidating prospect on its own, purchasing a new suite of bedroom furniture can be an even more daunting endeavor. If you’ve done some research on the cost of a bedroom set, you may be scratching your head trying to figure out how long you’ll need to postpone your retirement just because you want to replace your existing bedroom set.
There’s no reason to stress or fret over the potential cost of a bedroom set, however. That’s because there are some things you can do to keep the investment you make in bedroom furniture as low as possible.
If you can’t swing paying for a brand-new bedroom suite comfortably, you may want to consider purchasing used bedroom furniture. Websites like Craigslist and eBay are great places to search for pre-owned bedroom furniture, but you must be sure you won’t have to reinvest the money you save on furniture into shipping.
If you’d prefer to shop for previously owned bedroom suites in person, check your local paper or community websites for upcoming yard sales and estate sales. These types of sales can be wonderful sources for gently used bedroom furniture at prices that are much lower than you’d pay for comparable, brand-new furniture.
While you can often get used bedroom sets for less, it’s important that your budget is generous enough for you to have the furniture cleaned before you bring it into your home. This is particularly important if the furniture comes with bedding or it has upholstery of some sort. You don’t want your home to become infested with fleas or bed bugs just because you saved some money on your new-to-you bedroom suite, after all.
Choose the Most Beneficial Payment Method
Depending on where you shop, you may be able to get a discount if you open a line of credit with a retailer during a promotional period. Before you do this, you must be sure that you’ll be able to pay off your debt in full before the related promotional period ends to avoid paying interest rates that might be exorbitant after the introductory period expires. You can also explore financing or layaway options for your purchase.
If the store where you’re shopping at doesn’t extend credit or you simply don’t want to open an additional line of credit, be sure you use a payment method that benefits you. If you get cash-back on purchases from a credit card, consider paying for your purchase using that card and then pay off the balance with the cash you have saved up. While this won’t help you save in the immediate term, at least you’ll benefit from your purchase in another way.
