Whether you've bootstrapped a business with the bare minimum, built something amazing out of spare parts, or simply rescued a party without a bottle opener, we know you've got a DIY story to tell. We'd love to hear it and share it.

We're celebrating DIY in a disposable age this week at Lifehacker, and we'll have plenty of tips, projects and links to share. What we'd really love, though, is to hear the DIY story you've been dying to tell, about saving money, saving time, or just saving your sanity with a custom-made solution.
Have you avoided paying big bucks for a device or gadget by making your own or improving what you've already got? Has your freelance or small business made do without fancy enterprise tools by being crafty with cheap or free tools? What's your most memorable MacGyver-esque moment, where you fixed or boosted your situation with just some basic supplies and ingenuity?
You may well have other definitions of DIY that might not fit the conventional duct-tape-and-elbow-grease mould, and that's fine — we want to hear those too. So go on — tell us all the tale your friends are sick of hearing about your clever solutions. We're listening.
