Are you ready to tackle the next big project in your fixer-upper? Or maybe you just need a new kitchen table? Whether you’re on the lookout for a door, flooring, piece of furniture, appliance or all of the discount home improvement supplies for your next big project, chances are, we have what you need at your nearest Habitat for Humanity ReStore.
There aren’t many stores that sell discount home improvement supplies you can feel this good about. Our items are high quality and, when you shop at the ReStore, you’re supporting the Habitat for Humanity mission, rooted in the strong belief that everyone deserves a decent place to live. We use the proceeds from the ReStore to build homes, community and hope in the Bay Area.
Discount Home Improvement Supplies
Due to the nature of our ReStore, which is constantly accepting gently used donations, the inventory is perpetually changing. There will always be something new (and up to 75% off retail price) for you to discover with us.
Our inventory varies, but will always carry the following discount home improvement supplies:
- Building materials and hardware
- Plumbing and fixtures
People are often surprised to find high-end furniture items, like vanities and sofas. Inventory moves quickly, but we frequently get up to $3,000 tables and sofas that then sell for half price or less.
Large home improvement projects requiring things like doors, windows and flooring can be tough on your bank account if you aren’t careful. To make sure your next home project doesn’t end up costing you an arm and a leg, follow these budgeting tips:
Buying used supplies can save you a lot of money without sacrificing quality. As we mentioned above, a gently used item could mean saving 70% off of the retail price without anyone being able to tell the difference.
Do It Yourself
Like most things, home improvement projects are cheaper if you can do them yourself and save the extra costs of labor. Invite friends to help and pay them with pizza, gratitude and the promise to help them with their next big home project.
Planning ahead can also be a big money saver. Make a big list of everything you’ll need and budget yourself accordingly so there are no unexpected costs down the road. You’ll be surprised how quickly the little things can add up when you don’t plan ahead for them. Knowing what you need and how much you have to spend helps you make smart choices about what you buy so you don’t find yourself over budget by the end of your project.
To keep track, it helps to add your list of planned expenses in a spreadsheet. Include the item, the current cost and your desired cost, along with the totals. This way, you can have a bit more flexibility to wait for the perfect item at the perfect price.
