Stretching Your Shopping Budget With Surplus Stores

When you're looking to get great products and even better prices, one of the things I've learned is how to shop surplus stores. When you shop a surplus store, you can buy overstock items from your favorite name brands at a fraction of the price. After shopping stores like this for many years, I've learned how to maximize my money when I'm looking at overstock like this. I created this site to help others learn how to save money on their shopping adventures as well. I hope that the information here helps you to better prepare for your next trip out and make the most of your budget.

The Top Two For Your Patio: Cheap Outdoor Seating Options That You Need Now!

While a reasonable price may be of primary importance when it comes to outdoor furniture, most people also place durability and appearance as high priorities. There are a couple of particularly popular materials used in patio furniture today, and both are fairly reasonable price-wise. Read on to learn about the top two material choices for cheap outdoor furniture today. 

Putting Price First: Plastic Patio Furniture

Plastic is typically the cheapest choice for patio furniture today. However, there are a wide range of prices within this category. The very cheapest of plastics may be far less durable (they are sometimes even flimsy!) than the higher-cost ones. However, heavy-duty plastic resins can be quite rigid - and they have the durability to match that heft. 

In addition to being the cheapest choice, plastic has a couple of other nice advantages:

  • Easy to Clean: Plastic patio furniture can easily be scrubbed with just water and a cleaning brush.
  • Color Choices: Plastic furniture is made in a whole rainbow of colors, allowing you to choose the perfect shade for any decor. Other options like iron tend to have just one or two color choices.

Keep in mind, however, that plastic patio furniture may be susceptible to warping in hot weather and becoming brittle in freezing temperatures. Therefore, in the most extreme temperatures, plastic furniture should be stored in a protected area. 

When You Want Super Strength: Wrought Iron Patio Furniture

While wrought iron furniture is typically more costly than plastic furniture, the jump in price is not as large as you might imagine. In fact, some kinds of elegant-looking wrought iron furniture can be found for roughly the same price as the highest quality plastic resin patio furniture. Much of the wrought iron patio furniture made today comes from recycled iron, which lowers the cost to you. In fact, you can even recycle your own iron patio furniture when you're ready to replace it. 

In addition to its reasonable price, wrought iron patio furniture has some other major advantages:

  • Year-Round Use: As long as wrought iron furniture is treated with a corrosion-resistant paint, it can be left outdoors all year round. Very hot or very cold weather won't damage it.
  • Stays in Place: Because iron is so heavy, you can easily "set it and forget it." It won't move around or shift, even in major windstorms (something that lighter-weight plastic furniture can't claim.) 

No matter which of the two options that you choose, one of these two options will give you the inexpensive outdoor seating solution of your dreams!
