People are always asking about the best way to save money when buying a new sofa or bed.
But what are the best ways to spend your money?
We asked the experts to share their best tips on saving money.
What is a ‘pennies’?
Pennies are small bills that are added to a home’s bill to pay for essentials.
They can include gas, electricity, telephone, water and a small security deposit.
They are often included on the top of the property’s rent bill and sometimes can be deducted from the value of your home.

How do I save money by buying direct?
If you are planning to purchase your own property, it is best to shop around first.
There are a number of options available if you want to shop online.
For example, you can use our search engine to look for a particular brand of furniture or a specific type of home.
If you have a few friends in the same area, they might also want to check out similar properties nearby.
If you buy directly from the seller, you are guaranteed to receive a quote from the retailer.
However, the seller can often charge a fee for this, and you should always double-check.
If your current supplier is a third party, they may charge a flat fee for their quotes.
This is known as the mark up and is usually between 5 and 10 per cent.
You should also check if your supplier offers an upfront discount, as this will make it easier to save more money on your home purchase.
If your supplier doesn’t offer an upfront price or a discount, you may be better off with a local agency.
You may also be able to save a lot more money by using an online auction house.
Many of the major auction houses offer a ‘buy now’ price, so you can get your furniture sooner, for a lower cost.
However you will still have to pay a commission and some may require you to pay extra for shipping and handling.

What is the best ‘pink’ furniture?
Pink furniture can be a great way to boost your overall home budget.
The colour of a piece of furniture can tell you a lot about the quality of its finish, and how much money you will save on a standard piece of furnishings.
The most important thing to remember is that a piece has to be of a high quality to qualify for the ‘pinky’ label.
For instance, a white sofa with no colour can look dull and boring, so it should be a high-quality item.
It also has to look good in person and make the most of the space it occupies.
Pink furniture should not be too expensive.
A one-bedroom flat with a single sofa, sofa beds and bedding costs around £300-£500 a month.
For a two-bedroom house with two bedrooms, the same sofa would cost around £400-£550 a month, or £2,300-3,000 a year.
How do you save money?
Most people are aware that buying direct means you can save on furniture costs, but there are a few things you need to know about saving on furniture.
Firstly, you need a good budget.
Your ‘pinks’ furniture is not necessarily the best for your home, and this depends on the type of furniture you are buying.
For most, a budget is an important element in choosing the best furniture for your needs.
A one-bed flat with two beds and a single couch will cost between £400 and £600 a month if you are looking for a standard type of sofa, or a £2-3k a year if you have one- and two-bed apartments.
The budget will depend on the size of your property, the type and amount of space you have, and the number of bedrooms and bathrooms.
The second key to saving on your furniture is to make sure you are using the right type of budget.
You don’t need to be looking for the cheapest, cheapest sofa, because you can have a better experience with the sofa if it is properly built.
The type of ‘pizza’ budget is where you can spend your ‘pens’ on items that you can actually afford.
These can include a sofa with a high level of quality, a two bedroom apartment with a sofa bed and a sofa, and so on.
You will be saving money on the cost of materials and labour, and it can be cheaper than buying your own furniture.
You also can save money if you can’t afford to pay rent.
If there are only two bedrooms or a bathroom, you will need to budget for a small flat, a four bedroom flat, or even a one bedroom apartment.
For this type of accommodation, you could save around £700-
