We’re open to working with brands with an eye toward creating a value exchange- that is, making sure our family, our readers and the brands have something to gain from a relationship.

Reluctant Renovator is looking for what’s new and different; we’re interested in items related to home renovation, decoration, design, furniture, DIY, home maintenance, garden/yard maintenance entertaining and organization tools that help a busy family.  If we like a product, we’re open to product stories (we leave the heavy hitting reviews to Consumer Reports) for no fee; if we think our readers will like it, we might even provide a giveaway on your behalf.

There are charges for other activities such as sponsored posts, advertising here and in our Progress Notes newsletter.
