I've found free or cheap baskets/ vases at garage sales, on Freecycle, or in the clearance section of Michael's Arts & Crafts store.
The Freecycle Network - freecycle.org - is a non-profit grassroots network for people who like giving and getting stuff for free.
Check if there's a Freecycle scheme in your area or a Facebook community page where you can swap or give goods away.
Freecycle allows users to post ads online, either stating that they have items they are willing to give away, or asking if anyone in the community has a specific item.
Find free sofas on Freecycle.com - all you need is a van to transport them.
And if you like a bargain, have you checked out the website ' Freecycle'?
The scale of the financial savings that we must make have resulted in many difficult decisions, and we hope that residents therefore appreciate why we need to introduce these charges, which are comparable with other councils across the country." Residents are also able to take large items to their nearest household recycling centres, where most waste can be separated for recycling, or use a service such as Freecycle or the many charity organisations that collect household items.
