Best way to recoup cost of hardwood flooring?


So - I got ahead of myself in February. We had the money to work on the bathroom and at that time my focus was *also* on the kitchen. I started the bathroom (still am working on it) and I also started to buy items for the kitchen.

Unfortunately, the kitchen won't be happening - a lot of other stuff came up and the money reserved for the kitchen had to cover everything else and, well, since I'm still working on the master bath, even if I did have the money, I wouldn't have time to do the kitchen before next semester starts.

So I need to let go of the hardwood flooring I bought for the kitchen.
It was on clearance at my store so they won't take it back - and it's just sitting in my bedroom, hasn't moved.

what's the best way to let go of it while recouping as much of the cost as possible? Ebay, Craigslist? Keep it for a year until the kitchen is on the plate?

No doubt in my mind. If you are going to use it next year, you will never get anywhere near what you paid for it.... I suspect. Let is sleep, and worry not about the interest on the money you have in it. You bought it on sale for next year, so you are way ahead. Good luck. john

What he said, save it for that job. But don't store outside in a damp shed.

If you like the flooring keep it
I often collect materials 2 years in advance of a project

I hear ya Dave!

I bought our new bathtub (BRAND new) from a Habitat for Humanity ReStore
5 years ago! It'll finally get installed this year! LOL
But for $30.... I had to buy it, knowing I needed one in a few years!

I shop H4H all the time, too - saved me so much money! I bought my bathroom sinks and faucets from there for $10.00
