Saving money by fixing things

Hello Friends,

We’ve been having a bit of trouble with our oven recently.  The fan had stopped turning and this meant everything was cooking unevenly.  Anything at the back of the oven got burned to a crisp, anything near the front was undercooked.

At first we thought we might need to replace the oven.  OH likes fixing things though, so he ordered a new motor and fan, and this afternoon he took the oven out and replaced the motor.

It works like new!  A new oven would have cost us £259.  Cost of a new motor and fan? £25!

What have you fixed recently to save money?

Until next time, Tawney x
