Should You Rent or Buy Housewares and Furniture for Your Extended Stay in Mississippi?

Whether your extended stay in Mississippi is for a few weeks or a few months, one pressing question you will have is whether you should buy or rent everything you need to make your stay comfortable. At first glance, housewares are relatively inexpensive to buy, but is purchasing a new set of everything you already have at home really “inexpensive”?


Compare Buying versus Renting Housewares and Furniture


Housewares can include everything from a coffee pot to brew your morning coffee to towels to dishes and cookware. Furniture items cover basic necessities from beds, chairs and tables to entertainment units, desks, dressers, cupboards, and more. If you are not sure whether you should buy or rent these items, here are a few things to consider:

  • Little Purchases Add Up to Big Totals – Housewares on their own do not cost a lot. You could get a toaster for under $10 and a basic set of dishes for $20. However, as you continue to stock your rental with these “cheap” housewares, the total you spend begins to add up and you could easily spend a few hundred dollars. When you rent, you are spending a flat monthly rate on your housewares and everything you need is included.
  • What You Already Have – You are here for an extended stay, so you want to have a home away from home. Every new item you purchase, you probably already have at your permanent home. So, what will you do with your duplicates when your extended stay in Mississippi comes to an end? If you choose to rent, the housewares and furniture are returned to the rental company and you do not have to worry about bringing home two of everything.
  • Shipping is Not Cheap – If you want to bring all of those items back home, you most likely will have to ship them (unless you have the space in your vehicle). Shipping all those items will cost a few hundred dollars too, further increasing how much you spend. There is no shipping with rented housewares; instead, you return them with your corporate housing rental.
