What I found on Kijiji during my move

Moving season is finally over. Boxes have been emptied, pizza has been eaten and it is now time to concentrate on the most exciting part- decorating the house. You may have moved to a bigger place or like me, a smaller one. Adding a few pieces of furniture to your decor might help you change your perspective on the ones you already own or help with storage in your new appartement.

As I mentioned in a previous article, I decided I was going to be eco responsable for my move and try to get second hand articles for my new space. Usually, I would simply go to the nearest furniture store, get everything I need and not really think of getting second hand items. Thing is, a lot of people are actually selling their stuff online, not because the objects are used or not acceptable, but because they are moving themselves or just need more space.

Then, I thought of THE site to sell second hand items, Kijiji. I’ve already shopped on Kijiji before, but never for furniture. Since I needed a new closet for my clothes and shoes- moved for a 6 closets apartment to a 1 closet one- and a few accent for my living room, I started my researches.

Après finding an all-white closet (my dream), a super-cute shoe ladder (you’ve probably seen me on Snapchat with it, had to carry it with no car), some flowerpots for my cactus and a few baroque hooks, my mission was accomplished. I was also desperately looking for a Crosley turn table, but I still have hope, since I subscribed to the notifications for this type of items (a feature I just learned about).

Testimony: I found Prince, my previous cat, the love of my life, on Kijiji. I fell in love with him when I saw his cute little face on the website.

Do you often shop on Kijiji? What are your favourite items to buy on the site?
