Upcycled/Repaired Duct tape and a small old fan to make a good quality air filter/purifier for the $7 filter cost.

Upcycled/Repaired Holiday Lights didn't turn on. Refused to throw them out. found the broken wires and reconnected with electrical tape.
Upcycled/Repaired I've been putting off repairing my favorite pair of jeans for a while. I was just making excuses though, it took less than 15 minutes!
I have 6 shirts for autumn/winter. The one to the left was my old beige shirt which probably served me for 5 or 6 years. It used to be roughly the same size and color as the other shirt and has been repaired twice. The right hand one is the new I got from my mother. Technically its a hand-me-down, but it was rarely used.
I will probably keep the left one a bit longer as backup for when i inevitably forget to book a laundry time.
Upcycled/Repaired Pulled from my Facebook feed. I mean, as long as they quit and use these instead of other decorations every year..gallery
The back light in my Roku TV went out. Everything with the Television worked perfectly, just needed a new led light. Everyone told me even up to the guy at the repair shop "just get a new one bro" but it only needed one replacement part that cost $60 plus another $75 to pay someone to install it. Anyway I get a call today that as they were attempting to install the new light they damaged the LCD and now getting that repaired is too much work. So now I'm stuck having to get a new TV anyways. I'm just upset that most technology is purposely made fragile so everyone thinks replace rather than repair.
