#7 Cheapskate

"My husband and I split a large full bathroom into a guest half bath and a master bath. After getting several bids from reliable contractors, the price was still more than we had planned. Most contractors supply materials at retail prices, so I asked what the charge for the work would be if we bought materials ourselves. By having our contractor do installation only, and buying materials online or from discount sources ourselves, we were able to afford the renovation."
