If millennials do become fortunate enough to move out on their own, chances are they’re going to need to furnish their new place. Even if they can afford this level of independence, it does not mean that they will be able to comfortably afford everything that comes along with, like purchasing brand new furniture.
When millennials begin furnishing their homes, you aren’t going to find them at Pottery Barn, Raymour & Flannigan, or Crate & Barrel. Millennials are creative and frugal. Any millennial that has furnished a home knows better than anyone that one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. They use websites and apps like eBay, craigslist, and OfferUp to buy used furniture and other items at a lower price.
