Cheap bc you never know if it’ll work in your home you plan to buy.

Something about buying used couches grosses me out a bit. My husbands old roommate was given his couch by his mom after another one of their friends peed on it while passed out. Ever since hearing that story I’m slighlty wary.

 Id buy new in the $1-3 price range. Check out Living Spaces, or as PP suggested Macys(when they have their sale). We have a huggge couch from living spaces that we bought 3 years ago for just under 2k. I got it custom(for no extra charges) and it has held up wonderfully since. My parents got their couch from there as well and its 10 years old and just now starting to break down. 

Id order something now that can work in your current space and your future space.

We bought from the clearance section of Bob’s for our condo rental. We didn’t care what color or style as long as it was cheap and comfy. We moved in together about 6 months before we got married and hoping to close on our own place this summer. We didn’t want to spend alot in case the couch didn’t work in our “forever home”.  We got a factory defect piece from Bobs clearance section (throw pillow had a pull and the couch pillow back had some stitching defects). But for 300 bucks, its held up great for this last year and we have been hard on it as its our only piece of living room furniture. It will be coming with us this summer hopefully.  We also did the clearance section for our TV stand at a local furniture store. It has one tiny mark on the leg which one of us could have easily done with the vacuum cleaner.  

 

So moral of the story…don’t spend a fortune if you are going to move in a year or two and want to redecorate, etc  or worry about your sofa or sectional fitting in your new home.
