While Michigan's ecomony may be on the upturn, budgets are still tight for many Grand Rapids families. If you're pinching pennies, one way to save money is to repair or improve items you already own instead of buying new ones. In many cases, the perfect solution is a product called Sugru.

Sugru is a silicone clay. It is hand-moldable and cures to a soft, flexible, permanent silicone in the air at room temperature. This stuff is amazing! Check out the slideshow to the left to see how I used Sugru to fix a pair of leaky winter boots, saving myself a lot of money over buying new boots!

Visit the Sugru website for more information or to order some for yourself!
