We have a carpet plant near our home it is about 30 minutes away. On Friday between 10am-2pm you can purchase over runs they are perfectly good pieces of carpet sometimes you can get as much as 40 yards for about $2 a yard. I bought white 100% wool that listed for $80 per square yard for $1.40 square yard. At our plant you have to pay cash and pick up that day when you buy it and go early to get the best choices. They have a huge bulletin board they place samples on and you choice what is left.

Once you know what color, texture, etc. you are looking for, keep an eye out for remnants. You will need accurate measurements of the room(s) to be carpeted. Ask the salesman to watch for you, and check in with him often. Or you can go ultra cheap. Ask the carpet store to save their outdated samples. They throw them out when a new sample selection comes in. I have a friend who carpeted her front porch in these and it looked great. They were all color-coordinated, and each one is properly bound around the edges. She stitched them together with heavy thread and a giant needle. She kept her parrot out there most of the year, and a giant Boston fern, and it was really attractive! Best of all, it was free.
