25 Craft Projects for $1 or less from The ReStore

Best source for craft supplies
I had a couple of hours without the kids today.  This never ever, ever, ever happens.  I mean seriously it never happens.  So of course I went shopping.  The one thing I hate to do with the kids.

Now the ReStore may not be every ones idea of fun, but I love it.  Basically it’s a hardware store and a thrift store combined.  Dream come true.

If you haven’t checked out your local ReStore you must, like right now. Seriously it’s that great.

If you are like me, you have posted a ton of diy craft pins on Pinterest, but haven’t actually completed any of them.  Part of my problem is finding the time to go out and scour flea markets, craft stores, thrift stores, Craig’s List, and yard sales for all the supplies you need for all these fabulous ideas.  Well the ReStore has it all.  Plus it supports a great cause Habitat for Humanity, what’s better than that.

I’ll give you a tour of what I saw today and what crafty Pinterest project you can make with these supplies.  And for next to nothing!

OK so this one is just for all those projects that you need a little bit of paint for.

I always check out my hardware stores ‘oops section’ of paint, but this never has more than 10 or so cans of paint.  And they are always beige.  But the ReStore has hundreds of cans of paint and spray paint.  So many colours to pick from and all for $1-$3 a can.  Can’t beat that!

These are just a few of the things I found on my recent ReStore trip.  They have everything that you would ever need to complete any Pinterest project.  

I’ll be posting my finds makeovers soon.  I’m so excited about the ridiculously ugly light I found.  Can’t wait to finish it and share it.

  1. another great thing to remember is they have a great return policy…so, if you buy something and it doesn’t work, you have 7 days to return it, full refund. They sell stoves, refrigerators and big stuff they can’t test sometimes, and so it’s less of a gamble if you know you can return it. I recently bought blinds for my house, and half of them didn’t work, so I had to return them. It was only $60, but still, I’m glad I got my money back!:)

  5. OMG – I never knew about such a place. I looked and we have 5 locations in the Phoenix area. I will definitely check this out. Great ideas, BTW

    • No way, that’s so awesome! Just remember to go with an open mind and don’t give up if you don’t find anything the first time you go. These places are hit or miss. I was just at the ReStore this morning and didn’t find a single thing. But last time I had to restrain myself from buying stuff.

  6. OMG I never new about this!! I am so glad I found this post and even more happy that there is a store close by!!! Thank you for the ideas!!

    • Nikki I’m so glad you found it too. Habitat for Humanity is a great organization so I’m so happy to help them out as well. It is one of those stores that can be hit or miss. It just depends on what kind of donations they’ve recently received. So if you don’t find what you’re looking for don’t give up. They next time they might have it.
