Habitat for Humanity ReStore.

After hearing about Habitat for Humanity's ReStore from several people, my husband and I decided to check out the one just 30 minutes from our home. The store carries everything from furniture to cleaning supplies to toilets. They have an incredible amount of building supplies, which is awesome for new homeowners of old homes like us. We found Armstrong vinyl tiles for $0.33/sq. ft., which is a third of the price we found at retailers online. We were thrilled because we already had plans to replace the carpet in our sunroom with vinyl tile, as well as change out the linoleum in our kitchen for a checkerboard pattern of vinyl tile (a la the lovely image above). I love that we'll be making upgrades to our home while using materials from the era our home was built. The best part is that these stores are located all over the country, so chances are there is one near you!
