Intriguing and Sometimes Inadvisable DIY Solutions

Human ingenuity is an amazing thing, especially when you're looking for DIY solutions on a budget.

That's not to say these methods don't work. It's just often a better idea to choose the DIY solution that leaves you with fewer tickets and more remaining fingers.
