Using things is always superior to wasting them, but squandering alcohol is an especially galling dissipation because alcohol is delicious and excellent. Most of the hard stuff has a long shelf life, but if you uncork a bottle of wine and forget to finish it off within a few days, it gets vinegary and bilious-tasting. Especially after a housewarming party or dinner shindig or any other occasion where a bunch of people show up at your house bearing fermented grape drinks, the potential volume of wine down the drain can amp up to tragic.

When I think of chocolate pudding, I usually think of powdered mix, goop in portable, little containers, or tons of whisking and stirring. But not this one. No, this one is a luxuriously creamy pudding that's packed with protein and healthy fats.
One of the best things about owning a GoPro is you can take it anywhere -- even in the water swimming, diving, surfing, or just paddling around. Of course, losing or dropping it means it's lost to the depths. This trick uses a plastic soda bottle to make a simple, floating mount you won't lose under water.
We've discussed several ways to bring a garden into a small space, but this method is particularly interesting. Just grab some old window screens, scrap wood, a couple of hinges and a screwdriver, and of course your herbs and pots.
Trying to DIY in a small space is always tricky, but this combination workbench and toolbox from Instructables user Robb can help. Made from an old flight case, it's portable, small enough to stash in a corner and folds out onto a bench you can actually work at, with all your tools within reach.
We've discussed how you can use toothpaste to fix minor scratches on your car or the plastic of your headlights, but if you spot stress cracks in your glassware or a pair of reading glasses, toothpaste can fix them right up for you too.
No one except a sociopath likes to waste food and throwing out carrot tops (or radish tops, or turnip tops) sends a shiver down my spine. Vegetable greens make great additions to stir-fries, soups, and pestos, but these supposed scraps are also a great base for tasty little fritters.
There's no shortage of ways to repurpose an old PC, whether you're just trying to make it work again or turning it into something else entirely, like a home server. Laptops, are special though -- due to their small size and all-in-one nature, a bit of DIY work can turn a laptop into just about anything. Here are some options.
Perhaps you've always wanted a fancy delta kite but just didn't want to invest the $US30-40 necessary to acquire one of quality. (Or maybe you'll just find this project fun and interesting.) If you've got an umbrella, you can turn it into a kite.
