One thing I love is replacing old crap with new stuff. Light fixtures, door knobs, load-bearing walls. . . that kind of thing. Usually a question that comes up after removing the old stuff is, “What the hell am I going to do with all this?” Well, assuming the old stuff has some value, Habitat for Humanity has come up with a great solution: donate it to one of their ReStores.

This beats dumping building materials and resources into landfill, and it’s a great cause. Plus this ReStore system works both ways. The stores are also a great way to find building materials on the cheap. Some contractors unload brand new goods there too. I dropped off some cabinet hinges and other goodies I removed from our house recently. While I was there I browsed around and found loads of doors, windows, cabinets and appliances among other things. Just keep in mind they have to sell whatever you bring in, don’t even think about trying to stick your local Habitat for Humanity ReStore with broken pieces of that 1960’s cabinet you just ripped out.

The more info link below will give you a rundown of what the store have to offer, and even a store locator to find a Habitat ReStore near you.

About Marc Lyman

Marc grew up under a brave single mom who "encouraged" home improvement on the family home. Early toddler gifts included a tool set, and even a cordless Bosch drill when cordless drills first came out. In grade school (give or take a few years), Marc's mom said, "We need to cut down some trees. . . . here's a chainsaw." A father figure also involved Marc in many home improvement projects, including a summer of home remodeling in Palo Alto, CA. Toss in some Obsessive Compulsive personality traits researching everything home improvement related. The end result: a genetically pre-disposed, socially sculpted home improvement machine! For his complete profile, please visit our About page. Really, it's worth it.
