Home renovation donations




Habitat for Humanity runs ReStore, a shop where you can donate used stuff for home remodeling for another to buy. You can write it off on your taxes as a donation, someone else gets a deal for their house project, and Habitat uses the money for its mission.

The Omaha store is on 24th Street a little south of Leavenworth.
Council Bluffs has one, too, but I haven't been there.

You'll find windows, doors, vintage sinks, tile, cabinets, light fixtures and more. There's brand-new in the box stuff sometimes.

Sample deals: I got this bathroom light fixture for $8, and two boxes of this sage green tile by Dal Tile for $20 ($120 value).

Yesterday, I donated the kitchen cabinets from my flip.
