How to save on home remodeling

We are in the midst of moving and expenditure is definitely going up due to home remodeling. A new interior paint for the house is already raking up $3000! While looking at the variety of free sample products, it was good to learn about other type of savings available for home renovations/update.
For example, signing up for Sears' In-Home offers to get a free in-home consultation for window replacement and upgrading to a better, more energy efficient windows could save a bundle in terms of energy costs for the home. In addition, it may even qualify you for a giant tax refund at the same time!

Similar to that list all kinds of free samples in broad categories such as food, health, travel, and even free cell phone wallpapers; the All Free Samples website also list coupons for home and garden - which is what I am most interested in right now. Another coupon savings that may come in useful for us is the Lamps Plus store coupons that includes $25 Off Basic Ceiling Fan Installation, 20% Off Lamp Shades Coupon and $30.00 Off Any Combined Floor & Table Lamp Purchase Over $250. Wow! That's really a great deal! Lamp Plus is very near to where we will be living, so we are so going to make use of the store coupons if we need home lighting solutions.
