In a recent episode of New Girl the roommates get into an argument over character Nick's fix-it-just-enough-to-work solutions (which include taping a roll of dimes to a table to level it out, and a spoon in the soap dispenser) versus his roommate Schmitd's desire to get a "fancy fix" and just hire a pro...

This led me to wonder, what is your most extreme/creative just-enough fix and when do you cave in and shell out (if ever)? My personal just-enough fix is a childhood memory of a rubber mallet that sat atop our television. There was a loose connection and if you hit the power button then whacked it in just the right spot it would flicker to life.
