Home Deals on a Dime

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WLFX) - When you own a home, it seems like there's always a new project - from the kitchen to the floors to the garden - and it can get quite expensive.

A new kitchen or bath can cost tens of thousands of dollars, fresh landscaping $5,000 to $10,000, but you can cut those costs in half if you know where to shop.

"We get at least 50 [percent] off retail, but many times it's 70 to 80 percent off what you get at a regular store."

Peter Gates, runs the Habitat for Humanity ReStore in West Palm Beach. He says they have some great items in stock right now that can help you save big. "There's toilets, appliances, doors, tiles, everything including the kitchen sink. We get new stuff in everyday. It's an exciting place to shop and work."

There are so many things to save on. You can buy a pint of paint for a buck, a gallon of paint for $2. Go to some other place you can spend $16 to $28 a gallon depending on the brand. What I like about this place, if you have paint in your garage, you can donate it here, and then pick up something else and get a great deal.

Deals on items like hurricane shutters: here they cost $2 a foot. Go to the home improvement stores and be prepared to pay $9 a foot.

At other habitat stores, the bricks go for $60 a cube compare that to $225 if you pay retail.

Nancy Daly says, "You're looking right now at a grill that is a natural gas grill. This would retail for $2,500 new, and it's slightly used, and we're selling it for $550. I think we have bargains to be had, and the stuff is really good."

Here's the deal what you buy for your home helps Habitat for Humanity build more homes. They hope to build 20 homes in Palm Beach County this year alone.

The Habitat for Humanity ReStore is located in West Palm Beach on Military Trail between Forest Hill Boulevard and Summitt Boulevard.
