Saving Money Challenge: Use Duct Tape

I got this cookbook about 11 years ago.  I love it.  About a year ago, it finally just fell apart.  My cheap self just duct taped it.  Guess what?  The cookbook still works just as well as it did before.  I didn't need a new one.  Does it look ghetto?  Sure!  But look at me!  I have no shame (but I am about $15 richer because I didn't go out and buy a new one). 

Moral of this Saving Money Challenge?  Try to fix before you replace!

This post is partially inspired by the group challenge Precious started at Frugal Makes Cents.
