Amazing! That's all we could say after reviewing all the DIY tips and tricks you gave us this year. So we've come to an obvious conclusion: You're all a bunch of latter-day Thomas Edisons—brimming with inventive, practical ideas and always looking for ways to save a buck or avoid a trip to the store.
With each of these tips, your resourcefulness shines through. For example: Don't have a fancy bit for stuck screws? No problem; see Tip #7. Can't afford a custom marble threshold? Check out Tip #13. And who knew Shop-Vacs could be used to dig holes? (See Tip #8.)
As Edison said, an inventor needs a good imagination and a pile of junk. We can't supply the junk, but there are plenty of ideas here to spur your imagination. We're counting on you for another round of tips next year.
