anyone got a bedsettee, sofa or double futon they don't want?

i'm moving out of the levvie shared house into a rented flat round the corner from where i live now. its unfurnished and i'm well stung by having to borrow money for the deposit and pay the charge for checking credit records etc plus first months rent up front(what do these people actually DO for that much money?). i don't have any savings either so its a trawl through loot or secondhand shops unless... anyone here can help me out.
i need a sofa (i'd love one that turns into a bed so people can kip in my new living room)but an ordinary sofa would do fine (not leather or plastic cause my vegan friends would attack the leather and plastic feels weird) and i need a double futon or bed to sleep on (a low bed if its not a futon cause the rooms little and so am I) also a fridge or fridge freezer if anyones got one they don't want. i know its a lot to ask. i just wondered if anyones got any of this stuff they want to get rid of. i can pay a few quid but i am pretty skint at the moment. i promise also to buy you a pint or a high energy vegan drink depending on what your personal preferance is.

i've got my begging face on. if anyone can help please do.
thanks
love lucy x

ps. the political relevance of this to lib com is that we can all have a whinge about landlords and the impossiblity of finding anywhere to live without paying hundreds of pounds if you cant afford mortgages and want to live on your own for a bit and squattings not a practical or realistic alternative..

and then when everyone is suitably distracted i will steal their furniture from under their bums tongue

there are loads of crates around and they make a perfect futon like base and we found loads of mattresses for the squat, ill see if we have any spare and get back in touch, if not look in gardens, esp the backs of posh flats they throw them out and leave them outside even though they are perfectly fine..

I'm sleeping on a mattress on the floor myself at the moment.
Freecycle is crap, just endless requests for the same stuff from some greedy sods. Stuff like: laptops, computers, mobile phones, machin a petrir (no idea what this is but the twat asks every day) and even a car!
Otherwise it's alright. I'm hoping to get a few bits of crockery stuff next week.
I'm hoping to get a table and chairs from these guys who are moving. It's either that or start stealing from my neighbours smile

Dont get me started on this.

Anyway mitch said she had a spare sofa, but someone will have to pick it up from pendle, that is if it isnt already gone.

lucy, the afterbirth futon does not have afterbirth on it, apparently the child in question was born on the floor (!)
anyway, it is still available and is the futon mattress bit, not the wooden frame - it is futon company i am told.

hmmm i am going to not have internet for a while cause the hemmorage of money moving to this flat is scaring me now at least until i know how much its gonna cost for bills and stuff on my own so after tomorrow its into the darkness of no internet - how will i survive.. i'll have to steal it off other people. i will lurk around computers. that shadow in the corner is not the potplant, its me. i hope people will take pity on me and take me out (and tactfully avoid the subject of the superhighway, the marvel of the world wide web - ok its mostly full of rubbish but i'm an addict dammit )
i will make zen gardens on the floor of the flat with stones, a rock and a carefully placed toenail. i will descend into senility so capt mission can shoot me (although i'd rather he didn't) but it would solve the problem of no internet i suppose.
i will learn to watch hollyoaks and yearn for bigbrother.
so goodbye everyone. i am cast into the outer darkness for weeping and gnashing of teeth (which actually sounds sort of fun) oh cruel world.
