WHY SPEND THE MONEY? (A DIY GUIDE FOR THE CHEAPSKATE)




All you need is a little ingenuity,
as shown by these examples:

Clock still works?  Got pen & paper?

Build a handy pizza cutter:


Install an inexpensive sprinkler system: 



You can put in a back porch without a contractor: 


Stadium seating for watching TV:

When you want a really strong bumper:


When you've finished the pizza & need a hat: 


When the basketball net got torn off:

Got a bunch of friends coming over for a barbecue?:


When you forgot to ask for chopsticks: 


When they won't let you in the restaurant without a tie:

When it's raining & your convertible roof leaks:

When you have a hole in your only pair of black socks:


Dual purpose seat & clippings collector: 



For when you can't find a clean bowl: 


Why buy another wastebasket?:


Pizza cold?: 



Duct tape fixes everything



When your hand mixer is on the fritz: 



Use a subtle bandage until it heals: 



Need a wine glass to capture the full bouquet?: 



Need a heavy duty door stopper?: 


Hairy & want to impress the ladies with your abs?:

At a picnic & forgot to bring the baby seat?:

Hard work pays off in the future. Laziness pays off now----fishducky

    That poor woman whose husband is keeping busy doing odd jobs around the house has my sympathy.
    Love your final line :)

  2. I have to admit there is a touch of genius in some of those "fixes". If necessity is the mother of invention, laziness is the baby daddy.
