Top 10 Ways To Cut Your Re-Do Budget #3

 Tip #3 Reuse, Recycle, Freecycle

 Whatever you want to call it, use what you have, or use second hand. One of my favorite things to do is to go "treasure hunting". Flea markets and garage sales are awes...
ome. Craigslist isn't bad either. I was looking for chairs for my living room but couldn't break the bank. My mother in law found just what I was looking for on Craigslist! Two amazing, vintage club chairs for $25 each! The plate collection thats going in my kitchen, flea market finds, and I didn't pay over $3.00 for any of them. In my study I have a Grandfather's clock that was given to me by my mother. I painted it and now it looks like a different clock! All it cost me was the paint! The key is not to get too impatient when you are looking. You will find just what you want, but it may take some time (and elbow grease)!
