Visit your local Habitat for Humanity reStore for inexpensive new countertops, and remove your old countertop yourself with a few swift smacks of the hammer to the underside.

There are companies that will fit a new counter top right over the old one and that eliminates the needs for demolishing the old. That saves money. Also using tile over the existing counter top is a good money saver. Probably the best way to save money is to see if you can do it yourself.
