Fix
up, look sharp

If it ain't broke, don't fix it. If it is...

Stick with what you got

Our friends over at Do The Green Thing have rounded up the best resources on the web to help you fix your stuff.

Beating the throw reflex and holding onto things for longer is one of those save-money-save-carbon double whammies we're so keen on. Here are a few of The Green Thing's favourites:

  • Two poetically-named sites, howtofixyourstuff.com and howtomendit.com, tell you how to fix and mend things – aren't you glad we explained that.
  • Or use one of these step-by-step fix-it guides for all your household fixing needs.
  • You can even fix something nice for someone out of those old bits you've got laying around the house. Check out Instructables or Make magazine for inspiration.
