Best websites for outfitting a home cheaply

These sites will direct you to building materials, home goods, architectural salvage, and consignment buyers.

OldHouseJournal.com provides a directory of stores that sell architectural salvage, which can be a big source of savings if you have a fixer-upper. Click the “salvage” link to find a local vendor selling doors, trim, or other architectural elements that have been removed from other homes.

Habitat.org/restores is the locator for Habitat for Humanity’s resale outlets, which sell building materials and home goods, both “new and gently used,” for 50 to 90 percent off retail.

SearsOutlet.com sells appliances, electronics, and more for up to 60 percent off. Some items have been dinged or scratched, but others were merely returned unused.

ConsignmentPal.com helps you locate local consignment buyers. The furnishings they sell often come from “manufacturers, interior designers, and high-end retailers.”
