free items freebies

This post is all about items that you can get for FREE by using coupons and/or inserts. Please keep in mind that some store’s coupon policies vary from region to region. So make sure you double check before you buy so that you don’t have any surprises at the cash register.  And how about this thought … when you see a product that is FREE and it’s something you don’t use, why not get it  and donate it to your favorite organization or person in need? Maybe you can make a “care package” for a dear friend or neighbor that you know will appreciate the help.It’s not about stocking up on items just because we don’t have to pay for them. It’s nice when we can do that as long as we’re going to use them. But it feels even better when we can share and give to those who might need it more than we do. Remember …  Save More, Live More, Give More!

4 Ways to Save Money When Hiring a General Contractor to Remodel Your House

This post may contain an affiliate link. Click for the full disclosure.

Save Money When Hiring a Contractor

You found an affordable house in your dream neighborhood, but there’s one caveat, it needs a ton of work and you’re on a tight budget. Save yourself time, money and stress by following these tips to save money when hiring a contractor to complete the remodeling project.

Plan Ahead

One of the easiest ways to save money when hiring a general contractor is by having a clear scope of work established before you start interviewing. Finalize the new design for all of the rooms to be remodeled and select all materials and appliances before arranging your first meeting to save both you and the contractor time, which translates to you saving money in the long run. If you don’t have all of this planned in advance, the contractor will have to spend time interpreting your needs and providing potential options for everything from design schemes to shower tile.

Selecting the appliances and materials ahead of time is also smart because then you’ll know how much everything costs and you can make adjustments as needed to stay within your budget. Plus, you’ll have more time to evaluate the bid pack to ensure you’re getting fair prices from the contractor.

Do What You Can Yourself

Once you’ve determined the scope of work, consider what line items you can take on to complete on your own. For instance, one easy way to save on labor is by doing your own demolition and tearing out anything that’s in the existing area you plan to remodel. Painting is another general task that’s you don’t need any specialized skills to complete. Simply rent some scaffolding and get the right tools (drop cloths, painters tape, brushes, rollers, etc.) and you can usually finish that interior paint job in a weekend’s time.

Ask For Value Engineering

Some design elements are more complex to build than others and, as such, more costly. But to the untrained eye, you may not realize that your remodel design has a lot of complex detailing that is going to cost you more than you want to spend. During your initial consultation with the contractor, ask for his or her opinion about what elements of your remodel design are the most complex and costly to complete. Ask for suggestions of less expensive options. The value engineering process is a great way to strengthen your communication as a team so your contractor can help you save money while you plan the project.

Allow Flexibility in Scheduling

When it comes to project management, the three main constraints are time, cost and quality. Sure you’d like the remodel completed quickly, for an affordable price with great quality workmanship, but nothing of good quality can be completed quickly for a cheap price. You have to choose two of the constraints that are most important to you. A project that’s rushed to be completed quickly with top-quality results as a priority will be expensive. A fast and cheap project will be inferior in quality. But, if you can afford the contractor some flexibility in scheduling, you can get a higher quality job done for a better price than if you demand a quick turnaround. Communicate your top priorities to the contractor ahead of time to ensure you’re both on the same page.
