Moving out is hard for furniture – just ask someone who has scratched their favorite cabinet during the process. Do not risk the wear of your favorite pieces by buying temporary furniture in the meantime. Although many temporary living spaces are furnished, you can add items based on your needs by viewing temporary options online. Need a bedside table? Check Craigslist or Freecycle for the cheap options you can live for now. Then, when it’s time to move into your permanent space, you can pass the pieces to someone else without worrying about scratches or bumps. Your real favorites will remain safe and can be transferred directly to your new home – no harm, no fault.
