Buy Building Materials for Less
Habitat for Humanity ReStores are nonprofit home improvement stores and donation centers that sell new and gently used furniture, appliances, home accessories, building materials and more to the public at a fraction of the retail price.
The deals at these stores are incredible. Here are some examples of purchases that I made at my local Restore: bathroom sink for $2.50, 5 gallons of exterior house paint for $20, insulated roofing foam for $70, bathroom vanity for $8, ceiling covering for $72, windows for between $10 and $25, ceiling fan for $20, and much more. These stores get all of these materials donated which is why they are able to sell for so cheap.
