Top Cost Saving Tip for you Victorians!

For our RenoSave followers who live in and around Melbourne, here is an exciting piece of news that will help you save even more money on your renovations : there is a Habitat for Humanity ReStore in Ringwood!

What is a Habitat for Humanity ReStore, you ask? 

ReStore is a bargain centre for home renovators, handymen and handywomen, home maintenance enthusiasts, DIY-ers and also tradespeople.  You can save 50-90% off retail costs of the goods that they sell and the products they stock changes weekly.  The ReStore is a retail outlet that sells quality ex-display, overstock, surplus products and building materials which have been donated by businesses.  Often whitegoods, tools and home accessories are available, which is handy if you are furnishing a rental property or renovating your own home.  At any given time about half of the products available are brand new, and half are good quality, useable second hand (the ReStore has clear guidelines about what they will and cannot accept second hand for resale). 

The good news is that anyone can shop at ReStore, because the proceeds to  Habitat for Humanity’s building program – Habitat for Humanity has the mission to provide safe, decent and affordable housing for families in the community, so by getting your renovation purchases there you’re also supporting a terrific cause.

ReStore has been open for about two years and is located at 16 Pilgrim Crt, Ringwood, Victoria. Open 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday and 9am to 1pm on Saturday.
ReStore has a website at on which they update specials monthly.  There are many, many more products in-store, so do go in to see what they have because stock – as you would expect -  is changing all the time.  The Team at ReStore can be contacted by phone on 03 9872 3530 or email .

Unfortunately for the rest of us keen renovators in “Oz”, ReStore is currently only in Melbourne, but Habitat for Humanity is a strengthening force in the Australian community and as there are Habitat for Humanity ReStores all over the world, we may benefit from other ReStores in Australia in the future.  Discussions are in the pipeline regarding other stores in Australia, so RenoSave will keep you up to date with any developments we find out about.
