The pandemic has a lot of people taking major hits to their budget. So for every new line of furniture aimed at those who still have a steady stream of disposable income, it's worth remembering that there still exists a counterpoint.

Thus it's worth investigating Uyeda's alternatives. We'll list a few here.
