He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart;
he gently leads those that have young

Another Reason to Try craigslist

When Hubs and I got married, 7.5 years ago, we bought a loveseat and sofa set made from bonded leather from...
wait for it...
Big Lots!
Oh, yeah! 
Anyway, for a whopping $450 or so we had a living room set that was great for napping.
Of course they lost their general comfort about 2 years into our owning them but they continued to be of nap quality for another 5 plus.
our dear Bean found a crack in one of the cushions and got a bit too curious for the couch's own good.
Hubs came home one day before we had guests set to arrive for my sister's wedding and discovered a giant, soccer ball sized tear in the "leather".
It's amazing how that stuff just peels right off!
Since our "babies" are all still young we opted to look for used furniture over new.
Once again, craigslist came through.
I checked periodically in the area for couches and found a microfiber set for an amazingly low, low price of $150.They're clean and easy to clean, they're comfortable, they are great for napping, and, oh yeah... they only cost $150!

My point being... before you buy new, especially if you have little kids who may just rip your stuff to shreds on a whim, give your local craigslist a peak. You never know what you'll find!
