One day you’ll find yourself furnishing your first apartment. Don’t try to finish all at once by buying cheap furniture at a big-box store. Save money by reusing what’s in your family’s garage and attic and what you can find on Craigslist. Also, be a collector rather than a decorator. Surround yourself with family photos, travel souvenirs, books, and other things you love. Doing so will make you happy and your home unique.
