If you're past feeling comfortable on just any old sofa scoured from Bulky Item Pick-Up Day, but not yet to the point of being able to stomach the expensive commitment that is new furniture, then head over to Salvation Army. We know what you're thinking: "Sally Ann's? Why they're easily twice the price of most thrift shops for furniture!" Well, there's a reason for that. Salvation Army sanitizes its sofas and sleepers so well that they earn certification tags and pass health department inspections. While sanitizing doesn't get rid of every last skin cell or dust mite, it does go a long way toward making that dog-eared, dog-smelling davenport worthy of your living room. And sofas, couches, loveseats, and sleepers in the $99-199 range are still a bargain in this town.
