     One year I undertook a project to interview 60 store managers at Home Depot. Most of them had built their own homes. A few of them had built legitimate mansions. It’s no wonder because of their access to materials deals and special discounts, and their relationships with subcontractors.

     You can do the same by having a member of your family work in a home center store or lumberyard. You get first dibs on contractor returns, specials, discontinueds, and your 10% employee discount, too. You also get to meet all the subs.

     O-B Mark A. did as much: “My wife took a job at Home Depot so we can know all the bargains coming up. Last weekend we bought marble tiles for $2.64 that are usually $7. The guy told me that contractors are buying them by the pallet load and putting them in warehouses. Later, when they install them they’ll be full price plus all the mark-ups for their customers.”
