When I moved out I didn’t even have a bed, table or even a chair. I slept in a sleeping bag and that first few weeks and it was fine. I don’t even think I had a TV. However, the accomplishment of sleeping in my own home, was the best feeling ever! Because it was all mine.
You build a little at time. I had basic kitchenware, because I started buying things on sale, before I moved out. The 99cent store was a God send. Some plate set here, a set of cups there. After I moved in my first priorities was a bed and table, then I got a bookcase. And in a matter of months, I had a fully furnished studio. Initially, all you need is bedding, plates, cups, utencils, a pot and frying pan, a tea kettle and broom/mop. Oh and some laundry detegent and cleaning supplies. Everything else you can manage to do without.
Also try http://www.freecycle.org you can find a ton of stuff that people are giving away in your area.
