Hi!, I went to our local investment club meeting the other ngith & they have some kind of organization called Green something or other, that supplies cheap materials. From what I understand these are left over materials that contractors donate. Inquire about your local investment club & see if they have something similar.

I hit the local garage sales on Saturday mornings. Once bought a case of new track lighting for $10. This past weekend, I spent $15 for two milkcrates of new hardware items. Included were two light fixtures, one kitchen faucet, 7-8 entry door locks, numerous door hinges, a doorbell, plumbing parts, etc. They are also a great source for tools. Labor is a little tougher. I do most work myself and hire a helper. I also have a couple of trades that will work with me and allow me to do what I’m capable of and they do the rest. That way you only pay the for the high priced “skill” where you really need it.
