What adaptations/workarounds/customisations are you using?

Step forward all you creative adaptors and bodgers.

What have you rigged up to make something suit your needs? What little fixes and set ups make your life easier?

I want to hang my earphones off the side of my monitor in a slightly more efficient and elegant way and while thinking about what to do I unwittingly dreamed up this killer thread.

Please don’t call any of your creations a lifehack. Thanks.

I use a cat litter tray to hold screws and that when I’m fixing my bike? It’s got dried cat piss on it but beggers can’t be choosers right?

I’m trying to think of one so I can earn @saps’ approval

Just put some pencils in an old bobble hat or something, I don’t think he’s all that fussy.

Just today I cut a loo roll tube lengthways and popped into the bottom of the food waste caddy to (hopefully) make it easier for the food waste to fall out into the outside bin
