This article, entitled "Home Improvement Savings," comes from Melanie Bloom, MomsEveryday correspondent from Lincoln, NE.
Spring is here and you likely have a long list of projects to get done around the house. But home renovation doesn't have to cost a fortune. You can save as much as half on your spring projects by purchasing the materials at home improvement salvage stores such as Habitat for Humanity ReStores or shops called eco-stores.
Home improvement salvage shopping has become more popular thanks to people and projects inspired by Pinterest.
If you're not planning on tackling a spring spruce up, consider donating some of your home items such as leftover paint, tile and light fixtures. As long as they're still useable and paint isn't dried out, you can donate these items and save your receipt for next year's taxes.
