Second-Hand Paint

June 11, 2015: Second-Hand Paint

Looking to give your walls a face lift but haven’t budgeted for it? I have a home improvement secret to share with you today…

Have you ever LOVED a paint color in the can, but once you’ve gotten home and painted it on your walls, you started having second thoughts? Luckily, most stores let you return those cans if you aren’t happy (another good savings tip). Instead of throwing the paint away, they stick it in a special spot and re-sell it at a FRACTION of the price.

This is also a great tip if you’re getting ready to sell your house and want to put a fresh coat of paint on the walls but don’t care that much about the color. It’s a win-win!

The Family Money Minute is made possible by Operation Christmas Child, who reminds us that by saving money, we can make a bigger impact on the lives of needy children around the world.
