More Eco-Friendly Options for Small Budgets (Part 2)

If you’re like most people these days, you’re keeping your home improvement budget to a minimum. So how can you make the most of a limited budget? When it comes to making your home more eco-friendly, there are several small changes you can make that create a big impact. Here are five ways you can improve your home, spend less, and go green at the same time!

Big Changes with Small Budgets

  1. Try to find alternatives to store-bought green remedies. For example, if you want solar energy but can’t afford upwards of $1500 for solar panel installation, consider getting the plans online and building your own. It’ll cost around $200 or less and it’s easy enough for anyone with basic handy skills.
  2. Start small and work your way up. As you make changes and your home becomes more eco-friendly, you will save more money on your expenses. Use that savings to make bigger and better changes over time, until you are able to save more and do everything on your list. It might take awhile, but when you are limited on funds it is a great solution.
  3. Shop at a ReStore or Used materials supplier. Just because you’re doing renovations to your home, you don’t need brand new items…plus, buying used supplies and fixtures is better for the environment. Visit your local resale supplier to see what items you can pick up used. You’ll find everything from replacement windows to light fixtures and everything in between.
  4. Take classes at your local hardware store. Typically, these stores offer seminars on various home improvement projects from time to time. Since the current concern of most people is going green, a lot of workshops will focus on DIY green projects that you can do for less than you’d pay professionals.
  5. Reuse and recycle.  Many things can be done to improve your home using recycled materials. Build a backyard gazebo or a driveway breakfast nook using materials from other parts...
