Redoing your home doesn't have to break the bank. Use these easy tricks to get what you want without going broke.

1. Upcycle what you have. Upcycling is a way of restoring or transforming your stuff—the art of taking something old and used for one purpose and turning it into something fresh and, oftentimes, unique. Check out Pinterest and Etsy for ideas.

2. Make a trade. If you want something new, get rid of something old. Put that unused or unliked things on Craigslist or eBay. When it sells, use the money to purchase something new. It might just start a trend in your house!

3. Barter. If you got something you don't want for Christmas instead of the something you really need, go to a site like BarterOnly.com.

4. Craigslist. List your unwanted items for free on Craigslist. The benefit to using this site over eBay is that you can keep it local and forgo the need to deal with expensive and clunky shipping. As it is always smart to protect yourself against strangers in your home, you'll want to take precautions. Make sure you're not alone and try to do transactions outside of your home, like in the front yard or garage.

6. Garage salesGarage sale shoppers aren't just fond of the process. They're bordering on fanatical, and for good reason. The savviest shoppers can find more than a few great deals. They can also make some real money, if they know what to look for.

8. HomeGoodsThis retail store is widely embraced for its affordable designs. If you don't have a HomeGoods in your area, check out Marshalls and T.J, Maxx. Because all three stores are owned by the same company, they overlap merchandise.

9. Home Improvement StoresHome Depot, Lowe's and other home improvement stores are often great places to look for furniture and other household items—but you'll find the best choices online. Some supermarkets also carry housewares and offer great prices on items like bedding, storage, and kitchen items.

10. Thrift Stores. You may not think a thrift store is the place to go for furniture and home furnishings, but if you pick the right thrift store, you might be surprised what you'll find. Check the kitchen section. "There are more genuine vintage sets of china lingering in the aisles of thrift stores than there are bridal registries in America. They usually cost less than what you'd pay for a single tea cup in a new set."
