Haul Your Own Materials
If you have a truck, you can save money on delivery fees by picking up your materials yourself and transporting them home safely. You can also rent a truck for a day, which may pay for itself if you use it to make a few trips.
Have a Backyard Camp Out
If the weather cooperates, consider having a family camp out in the backyard instead of getting a hotel. And use the time to build a DIY fire pit you’ll use for years to come.
Ask Your Contractor for Leftovers
Ask your contractor if he or she has any leftover materials from previous projects, such as flooring, tile or trim, because you may be able to save money on material costs.
