Spring is the season for sprucing up, but it does not have to cost you a fortune. Shop local and negotiate for discounts on home improvement materials and cleaning supplies. You can also request discounts on package deals, so doing all of your shopping at one store can save you big.
Don’t forget to browse the sale aisles, clearance centers and scratch-and-dent selections for even more savings on furniture and appliances. You can also try your luck at reuse centers, which sell secondhand home materials. Doing your own labor and paying in cash can also pay off big.
