#1 TOH Cheapskate

"Dumpsters from houses that are being demolished have lots of intact materials, and many superintendents will let you take whatever you want while they're working so they don't have to pay to throw it away. The things I've gotten by salvaging from the trash would have devastated my finances had I bought them new. In the past 14 months I've updated my 1949 house with new windows, leftover siding, recycled hardwood kitchen floors, and French doors, all saved from landfills and installed myself."
