  • I think I need the sofa the most considering when I have company for comfy seating. I hav a dresser for right now and it can probably wait. the dining set is another must have.

  • Bean bags and throw pillow for the living room
    A place to have family meals (if youre into that)
    and totes/ milk crates for clothes

    I remember being young and on a budget
    we all always gathered at the table

  • I would buy a sofa first and if I had someone to haul a find for me, I would check the local freecycle for dining furniture and a dresser.

  • Table and chairs.

  • I'd buy living room furniture first, dining room 2nd (and look for 2nd hand sets in great condition), and bedroom 3rd.

  • Sometimes it's the luck of what you find. You may find an awesome sofa while looking for your table and chairs and vice versa. Just be open to find those much needed great pieces. I found an amazing coffee table at a habitat for humanity restore, btw. I have shopped them in New England and Florida and found some cool stuff.
