Big Ways to Save on Home Renovations
  • Opening Intro -

    Is the idea of a complete home transformation lurking in the back of your mind?

    Are you constantly looking around in each and every room to see what updates or changes you can make?

    If so, there are ways which you can save big money on home renovations.

-------------------------------------

Here are a few tips on how to save money and still make the home improvements you want.

Gift Cards

Let friends and family know that you have big plans to update your home. So, when it comes around to your birthday or a special holiday, they may be more inclined to present you with a gift card from a home improvement store. Don’t want to wait for a gift card? Buy discounted gift cards online. There are few websites on the internet that sell unused gift cards at a substantial discount. These websites purchase the gift cards from individuals that do not wish to use them and sell them to others that may want them at discounted price. It is a win, win situation for all. Depending on the website, unused gift cards may be available for: home improvement stores, home furnishings and even home decoration stores. Score big by purchasing gift cards at less than the face value.

Shop at the End of the Season

Many home improvement stores drop their prices on many items at the end of the season. They need to make room for what is coming in next. For example, towards the end of the fall season, riding mowers, lawn trimmers, and leaf blowers will be discounted in order to move that type of merchandise out so that shovels, snow blowers and other winter products can displayed on the store floor. Think about what you may need for the following year and shop at the end of the season.

Check Clearance Corners

Over time, companies tend to discontinue some their products or models because they were not popular with the public and did not sell. Or, the companies made slight improvements on an older model and are doing away with the previous model line completely. When this happens, stores are notified and end up placing the products on clearance. If this is the case, you as the consumer can save a lot of money! Most stores tend to “hide” their clearance merchandise. Be sure to check the back and corners of the store, as this is where clearance items can be found.

Returns and Opened Packages

Costumers sometimes return products due to a variety of reasons. This is another way for you to cash in on their return. If a box is opened or even damaged, stores tend to discount the product. Sometimes paint is even returned and sold at a substantial discount as it can’t be kept too long on the shelf. Sometimes the product itself has a slight imperfection and is discounted. Be sure to keep your eyes opened for returns, slightly damaged packaging and even those products with those small defects.
