Hopefully, AOC knows that the only furniture needed to furnish your own space are as follows:

1. Cheez-Its.

2. File cabinet (which can double as a dresser).

3. Crates (albums/food/storage/chairs)

4. PS4

5. Flatscreen TV

One of the few ways in which I am a real grown up is my bed. I bought a nice mattress and box spring, a very expensive mattress cover, and real bed frame with a headboard and footboard and everything. I still have a futon in my living room, my tv sits on metal desk from target, my coffee table was rescued when my neighbor got evicted and abandoned all her shit. But I have a nice bed.
