I like to fix stuff rather than throw it out to buy new stuff. Not only is it “environmentally friendly” [much overused phrase] it also adds skills and knowledge that come in handy. If you don’t know how to fix your particular stuff there’s probably a Youtube video on that kind of stuff or a community forum where people discuss it. If your stuff is important enough to spend money on and keep then it’s worth it. Once you’ve fixed your stuff you can also help other people to fix their stuff. [Channeling Carlin there. See below.]
It saves a remarkable amount of time and money too.
