Moxie Measure: When Becky and Christian Fittro started remodeling their 100-year-old home, it seemed like a full kitchen remodel just wouldn't fit into the young couple's budget. But then Mark's inner Deal Man came to the rescue. On top of doing much of the labor himself, including ripping our cabinets and refinishing pine floors, Christian honed his ability to sniff out a bargain. The best deal he made? Right before Christmas, he managed to get a whole set of stainless steel Whirlpool appliances (including Becky's much-wanted dishwasher) for $1,500—. Plus, he did the project at superhuman speed. In just three weeks, he had new cabinets, countertops, appliances and paint for just $7,000.
