    Hi and welcome 

    You can sometimes get loan through benefits but has t be paid back 

    You can 9often find cheap off cuts at carpet stores or on selling sites

    Hi @TRACEY99 - & welcome to this friendly community. Another idea is to try some sites where people simply give things away such as Freecycle & Freegle, tho it might be difficult until restrictions due to Covid-19 ease. There's some info here: https://www.moneysavingexpert.com/shopping/freecycle/
    I hope you manage to get some flooring, especially for your living area, but I know when I've moved house, that I was able to manage with just a bedside rug for a while in bedrooms. Please let us know how you get on, & hopefully others will have some ideas too. :)

    Hi again 

    When I moved I was the same I know it looked awful but I opened up my moving boxes and laid them out just to give bit of warmth 

    Then did the flooring room by room as I could afford it 

    @chiarieds nice to see you

    Hi @janer1967 - thank you; nice to see you too! :)
    I was without proper flooring for nearly 18 months, but got there in the end, as I'm sure Tracey will. :)
