Me and my fiance are getting our first apartment

We dont make the best income right now with us being in college but moving out is a must there is way to many ppl at our parents house to even get time to spend with eachother, we both currently stay in dorms and its to many rules but anyways I am huge fan of yard sales you can find some really nice stuff but my fiance say he wouldnt be caught dead at one of them he says well get things we need one by one when can afford it. I think its dumb he rather live in a furnitureless apartment rather than shop at a thrift store or yard sale, i told him i rather stay home with my mom or in my dorm til we can afford stuff rather then live like that. Is he being difficult or is it me? I mean were broke put your pride to the side is how i feel
