HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) - A house is just a house, until you make it your home by adding your favorite recliner or couch or big screen TV.
WHNT NEWS 19 ran across an interesting smart phone app that promised up to 70% off of nice unique pieces of furniture. That got us 'googling' and researching for other good deals out there.
If you're in the market to dress up your digs or replace worn out furniture, experts recommend you answer a few questions before you buy. Those questions include: how much space do you have and who uses that space? What colors do you find attractive? That means how do colors make you feel and how do you want to feel in that room? And how long do you expect to use the piece and what's your budget?
With all that in mind, you can start local at the Furniture Yard Sale for North Alabama and Fayetteville on Facebook.
There are more than 3,900 members of the site. Users must be permitted to join.
One user told WHNT NEWS 19 they find the best buys on such sites.
On North Alabama Vintage and Antiques, members buy and sell old unique pieces at greals from their neighbors. One user stated, "They are a great resource to find the pieces of furniture you want whether it is refinished pieces or ones that have not been refinished."
For consumers looking for something specific from another part of the country or world, WHNT NEWS 19 ran across a smartphone app and website leading to some interesting deals.
Joss and Main bills itself as a premier members-only site offering limited-time sales on the world's best brands. Wayfair.com is a similar site with more unique items. Both sites promise savings of up to 70% off daily deals.
WHNT NEWS 19 also came across a coupon through LivingSocial.com that offers a deal at Overstock.com for home decor and furniture. Consumers pay $10 to spend $20.
Most of these groups are closed, so you have to ask permission to join.
Some require members to live within the home base of the Facebook site to make transporting furniture cheap and easy.
