Home Fashion for Less
Some people may just give up and live out of a box–but not your loyal Coma News staff.
Where You At Fashion?
The first rule of home decor–like real estate–is location, location, location. Where to find the best deals is key. And for Thomas Steven John, our future news reporter, that location is local construction sites, where his finds include discarded cinder blocks and 2x4s to build bookshelves.
“The new McMansion subdivision in town is going to be a gold mine of home furnishings,” T.S. John said
New construction is not old school enough for Stan Bargmeyer, an intern for Coma News.
Coma reporter T.S. John likes to use unconventional and free items to decorate his bedroom in the grouphouse such as this handy chair/tv stand.
“Saturdays are my dump days,” Bargmeyer said about the Coma landfill. “You just gotta move quick to snag any furniture before these youngsters toss it down in the pit.”
Another intern, Chase Donovan, leverages his family’s experience with moving to find deals.
“I just cruise the town on the first of every month because people getting evicted leave some amazing stuff just sitting there on the curb,” Donovan said.
Clearly, it pays to shop around.
