I've starting a fresh and moving into my own place soon which means starting from the absolute bottom up with furniture.
Does anyone have any suggestions on where to get cheap NEW furniture appliances? I've been looking at Super Amart's living packages and am hoping that the good guys might do a deal on a fridge/washing machine/dryer if I purchase it all together.
Also what are the basics/important stuff that ill need? I've got my bedroom stuff already and have though of
coffee table (bogan I know. Is buying the package bogan as well?)
telephone ( for landline)
what else am I missing/is important?
Edit: Ikea is amazing but alas the closest one will be 2000km away.....

drinking glasses and mugs?
Bogan be damned. If getting a package is the best way to get you what you need, then I say do it.
I think ikea also do a kitchen set up package, or they used to.

Pegs, buckets, mops, brooms, bin, bath mats, towels, all those little things you always forget about
Oh and then there's the first grocery shop

For appliances try appliances online. They are really good fro price and speed of delivery.
Furniture.. I have heard Amart are not he best.. Bestie returned 2 or 3 lounges before they got one which has stayed together for more then 3 months. We don't have them in Sydney but I a not a fan from her experience and similar ones I have heard.
Also you forgot cleaning products/ tools. I have moved out of home twice without a broom or a cloth. let alone a dustpan or vacuum.

Kmart also do the kitchen setup box.. everything except plates and cups. it's not great quality but mine lasted 3 years till i moved home again.. they have also dropped from $200 in 2008 to $69 now. I think I replaced the Knives and the cutlery.

Fantastic Furniture have cheap furniture packages as well.

I guess if you're trying to save money, there are a few things on your list that are non-essentials, such as the dryer and coffee table. I'd personally prefer to go without some stuff for a while and be able to afford quality things that will last well, rather than get everything really cheap at the start.

I've got a dining set (the matching plates, bowls, cups deal). Have a vaccum and steam mop but need to remember the bleach etc.
Moving to FNQ so a dryer will be an absolute essential as I'll be rolling just in time for the wet season.
And the whole FNQ thing severely limits my store choice... The closest ikea is 2000km away and Fantastic Furniture is 1000km away.
Will look at Kmart for that kitchen pack, ta.
A couple of friends have the amart pack I'm looking at and it's fine I think my only choices for furniture are super amart and freedom

Just to let you know it seems appliances online are free for the whole eastern seaboard. Give it a look before you buy in store. They are pretty good on price, deliver & set up.

make sure to check out ebay stores.
if you buy from them, outside of ebay, the savings would be much cheaper, even if you pay freight.
