You can save a fair amount of money by fixing things that go wrong with your appliance yourself, rather than tossing them in the trash and buying new. I know that most of those twenty or more years younger than I am think doing so is nuts, but I was raised by Depression parents who repaired, fixed, or mended nearly everything as a matter of course.
I can still do that today. But I’m an old guy. The internet makes it a lot easier, too. There must be videos and manuals for fixing just about anything available online.
UPDATE: The ice crusher blade bottom on my Magic Bullet gave up the ghost yesterday. Went to Amazon and bought a replacement for less than four bucks. You’d be amazed at what you can find here.
Remember – anything you buy from Amazon through any link on this site puts a commission in my pocket, at no cost to yourself, so thank you very much! Also, arf! from the Presidential Pomeranian.
Check out my new bestseller, Lightning Fall: A Novel of Disaster. Glenn Reynolds at Instapundit.com says: “Bill Quick has authored a terrific thriller that is also an all too plausible warning. Highly recommended!” Available in Kindle e-book or trade paperback formats.
