Default Furniture shopping on Craigslist

Anyone here ever tried furnishing a house on craigslist? I feel once I get my own place this is what I am going to do, depending how furnished my place is.

Because I don't want to be one of those people who buy new stuff then constantly worry about it getting a single bit of dirtiness on it, especially when paid full retail. I don't get why people want to buy new stuff to end up becoming anal about trying to protect it from looking used like if they're trying to preserve a masterpiece. Just seems like more unneccesary stress to bring, I'd rather enjoy my furniture than worry about getting it dirty.

I'd rather use my furniture and if I spill stuff or drunk friend jumped on it with his sneakers on, at least I can have that peace of mind I didn't pay the new price. Because I would like to have people over maybe for some drinks and I don't want to constantly bitch not to get furniture dirty or that would ruin the party vibe. And I did look and some of the furniture are in good condition and barely used and they have to sell because it didn't fit properly or wife didn't like the color. It's like being able to save off of other people's misfortunes as long as you're not picky. Something good enough to be considered a cool pad and not look like furniture found on the freeway or a drug house.

I have got things like coffee tables/bookcases but kind of wary of anything upholstered due to bedbugs and stuff like that.

Craigslist is too expensive!

I have furnished my house from dragging shit off the curb and refinishing it, garage sales and thrift shops.

All real nice antique stuff, too. Most people come in my house and are like "dayum you have NIIIICE stuff"

It just takes time and effort.

actually use craigslist to find garage sales and estate sales.

Garage sales FTW!
Also check second hand stores

Craigslist is ok as well, just be sure to lowball everyone. never pay asking price.
