ANY homeowner will know just how expensive furniture can be.
But one woman named Emily has told how she hit the jackpot when she rummaged through her neighbour's rubbish and nabbed a whole load of furniture for free – and now plans to sell it on for profit.
In a clip shared to TikTok (@girlwithapowerdrill), Emily, who is a furniture flipper, begins by explaining how it all started when she was digging through her neighbour's furniture that they'd put of for rubbish.
"After I got over the embarrassment, they told me they were clearing out the house of a relative that had passed away and were about to hire someone to come and pick up all of the stuff," she says.
"After finding out I was a furniture flipper, they told me I could have every piece of furniture in the house for free.
"By the time my husband and I were finished clearing out the house, I had an entire driveway filled with furniture."
