Between a bed, seating, dressers, tables and more, furnishing a home can become very expensive. This is why it’s important to snag on to a deal when there’s one available.

The Augusta area has several of these kinds of budget-friendly businesses. Here are a few of them along with some of the bigger deals that are available as of Aug. 9:
Big Lots has a little bit of everything one would need from their home. Because it’s a liquidation store, the prices are fairly low. There are several sectional couches at or around $1,000.
