    "The heels on my favourite shoes were badly scuffed and marked and looked really shabby. I didn't want to throw them out, so I covered the heel in some glittery fabric. They look amazing now and I've received so many compliments on them. It only cost me around 5 pounds to spruce them up too!"

    "This is a bunch of old speaker about to be chucked so I took normal wires and a male jack from Maplan. 1 to wire the speakers I just connected the wires they came with (because there soldered and I don't have any solder) and connected all the positives together and put the positive wire with the male jack connected. I did the same with the negative wires. 2 connecting the jack was hard at first but it's simple connect the positive to the long tower thing and negative to the two smaller ones."

    "My 4-year-old MacBook had become slow and almost unusable, meaning I'd potentially have to buy a new laptop, further resulting in computer waste. I installed new ram and upgraded my operating system at a fraction of the cost of a new computer and now have a new lease of life out of what would've been binned!"
