You’ve probably heard the saying “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” Well, we like to say, if it is broke, do fix it!

So you can imagine how ecstatic we were to find Buzzfeed’s story on “41 Ways to Reuse Your Broken Things.”

The list is full of great ideas, some we’ve already tried and most we wish we had thought of ourselves. Suggestions vary from using glue sticks to make twist-up crayons to creating cute sandals out of broken flip-flops.

Most of these have links for tutorials and all are definitely fun and creative ideas. And remember, if you can’t reuse it, always check to see if you can recycle it.
