Link love (the settling in edition)

NZ Muse link love

There’s quite a few things I need to furnish my house, but it will be a slow process as I’m on a tight budget.

As with clothing, my preference is to buy second hand and get better quality.

I find myself walking a fine line, though. Obviously, I want pieces that are solid and in good shape, that look presentable. Not necessarily pristine – after all they’re going to take a battering in my household! But I don’t want items that have already sustained actual injuries in the line of war, like rips and tears.

    I think filling up the house is half the fun…it would be the full fun if perhaps someone on a network like HGTV would fill it up for you for free! 🙂 Thanks so much for the link love!

    Totally agree about buying second-hand stuff. It takes dedication but what you end up getting is much nicer for much less.

    Happy Friday!

    I also buy second-hand items as long as it’s usable and totally in good quality. Why not?
