I was contacted by my local Habitat for Humanity. They wanted me to let you know about World Habitat Day!
In 1985, the United Nations declared the first Monday in October “World Habitat Day” in order to recognize the vast housing need in cities around the world. This year is even more special; Habitat international will build its 500,000 home worldwide and its 500,001 domestically. This is a monumental achievement.
I think that is amazing! One of the ways they earn money to build these homes for deserving families is by the ReStores. They are like Craigslist on steroids! They have new things as well as gently used items. Things like building supplies, furniture, lighting, windows, doors, paint etc. All these things are donated and then sold for a very reasonable amount. In other words, you can get the best deals EVER!
I went to our nearest one in Orem, Ut to see if I could find a chair for an upcoming project. (If you are not sure where the closest ReStore is for you , you can look on their site) Check out what I saw!
A lot of the things there were brand new! Check out those stickers still on :)
I will admit that I surprised that there were new kitchen cabinets.
This was one of my favorites. MOLDING! And they even had some lumber!
When we had our sink emergency while mu husband was unemployed we came here and got a sink for $15.00. Totally saved us. There were a lot more there but since I was using my husband’s phone to take pictures it was hard to get it all in.
I found a chair that would work for my office redo. It was only $5.00 people! Totally in my budget. I can’t wait to show you what I am going to do to it!!!!!!
And in honor of World Habitat Day, the Orem ReStore is having a huge sale!!! Check your local store because chances are they are celebrating too :)
So add the ReStore to your list of thrifting places to check out. SUCH good deals and it goes for a GREAT cause. Because of constant donations their inventory changes all the time. So if you don’t see what you need then try again later :)
Happy World Habitat Day!!!!
