Our Rich Journey – How We Renovated Our Kitchen for $1,000 and Created a Side Hustle: We recently posted a video where we discussed how we turned a $10,000 investment in real estate into a $400,000 profit. After posting the video, the two most common questions we received were: 1) how did we learn to DIY; and 2) how did we DIY our home renovations for so little money? We followed up with a video on how we learned to DIY. In this video, we answer the second question – how we did our home renovations for so little money.

  4. Bitcoin Master on January 15, 2021 at 12:23 am

    Thanks, I never heard of the AS-IS section in IKEA. I need to renovate my kitchen and bathroom as we speak. The lowest bid I received was 25,000 and the highest was 33,000. I’m planning to put my existing cabinets in the garage as storage. So I won’t have much trash to throw out.

  5. mcarroll78 on January 15, 2021 at 12:23 am

    Was there any products that u couldn’t find that u had to buy retail?

    When you sell the home, do you sell it as furnished with all the furniture inside?

  10. Flaming Falcons on January 15, 2021 at 12:30 am

    This is such a great tip! I wish we lived closer to an IKEA. Awesome find!

  16. Katherine Vorstenbosch on January 15, 2021 at 12:35 am

    What an amazing hack! I actually recently renovated our kitchen (in a home that will eventually be a rental) I looked on Facebook marketplace daily for a few weeks and found a near new kitchen a renovator had pulled out of their home for $500 including appliances!

  17. Darren Heard on January 15, 2021 at 12:36 am

  23. Vika Kafovalu on January 15, 2021 at 12:41 am

    I LOVE YOU GUYS!!!! I listen to your Journey everyday. So motivating!

  24. Blissful and Fit Christy on January 15, 2021 at 12:41 am

    Hey guys! Just started watching your channel because I plan to buy property in Portugal and renovate it! Have you checked out the As-Is IKEA in PT yet?

  25. Jacqueline Hullaby on January 15, 2021 at 12:42 am

    Just went to IKEA today to scope out the AS IS section. #newsidehustle.

  26. Violet Burgher on January 15, 2021 at 12:43 am

    Thank you for responding, yes I am referring to the home in Portugal. I will check out the reference, thank you. I have an idea for you, can you start support the older generation to migrate to Portugal. As we get older we are a bit nervous to really use the internet to do things like that. What do you think? I would be your first customer. I love your garden and how your children seem so happy. Have a good day 🙏🏽🙏🏽😍

  27. Rebecca Sano on January 15, 2021 at 12:44 am

    I have only recently discovered your channel and I am so thankful to God that I did. Your story and journey is just beautiful and really inspiring. Currently binging all of your videos and each one I watch gives me new insight and ideas. Incredible. Thank you for sharing the information you have so freely with the world.

  28. Allon Morgan on January 15, 2021 at 12:47 am

    Hey, I really enjoy all your videos!!! Question: Did you get permits for the renovation?

  29. Karol's Art Oasis on January 15, 2021 at 12:48 am

    I didn’t think it would be possible for me to afford redoing the kitchen but I think watching this it might be a possibility. I have been looking for ways to increase the value of my current home. Thanks for the amazing tips. Really Wow.

  30. courtney on January 15, 2021 at 12:49 am

    That’s the only thing I don’t like. When he said they would buy stuff knowing they had no intention on using it, just to turn around and sell it. That’s unfair to someone who probably was looking for a granite countertop. Like I’m all for frugality- but that’s inconsiderate. But everything else I was cool with.

  31. SincerelySandi on January 15, 2021 at 12:53 am

    What are the qualifications for buying and flipping real estate? Im inspired.

  32. Larisa R on January 15, 2021 at 12:54 am

    where did you store the items?

  33. siamesebb on January 15, 2021 at 12:55 am

    Literally never heard of this before, blew my mind. Will be doing this for my next property.

  34. Violet Burgher on January 15, 2021 at 12:59 am

    Help I would love to purchase a property like yours in that area, can you help privately. I’m a pensioner wanting to move to Portugal, love your house and what I could see of the area. Please help.

  35. Bsj bdb on January 15, 2021 at 1:00 am


  36. Parag Shah on January 15, 2021 at 1:02 am

    This video appears to give a great reselling idea. When both of you went to the IKEA store, did it appear both of you where the only ones that were buying in the As Is section? Was it like nobody else discovered this at the stores you went to?

  37. The Ninth Hour on January 15, 2021 at 1:02 am

    I only shop at the "As Is" section at IKEA

  38. ROSEMARY BONNEY on January 15, 2021 at 1:02 am

  45. Al Taylor Desjardins on January 15, 2021 at 1:15 am

    Yes, Yes, YES!!! I bought a brand new, still in packages Ikea kitchen for $48! All lower cabinets plus corner cabinet…im going to install it in my new homes private in-law unit. Like you guys I will install it myself, increase equity and save thousands in contractor costs.

  46. Thoko Madumuse on January 15, 2021 at 1:15 am

    If only IKEA was available in my country:l…Good job you two.Thanks for sharing.

  47. Luciana Mariano Otten on January 15, 2021 at 1:16 am

    how far did you leave from Ikea? I would pay tones of gasoline if I would drive there daily

  48. Lisandra Roman Bromfield on January 15, 2021 at 1:17 am

    You guys are amazing!! Humble millionaires

  49. William Burkhead on January 15, 2021 at 1:17 am

    This is really smart. I have been to Ikea and the as is section, but never considered using it this way. Thank you.

  50. Elizabeth C on January 15, 2021 at 1:18 am
