Best (or most amusing) cheap fixes

I noticed the heavy power cord I have running to my amp was starting to loosen the plug in connector a bit and was sagging. I looked around for any quick solution and found a plastic bottle of Tums. It has a v shaped indented top that cradled the power cord connector and was the perfect height for a cable riser. Thanks Tums!!!
Cue ear-cleaning advice in 3..2...1....
Wait, a hydrogen peroxide treatment is not the first thing you do before a listening session? Tsk tsk.
I'll see your Tums, and raise you a rubber band! 😂😂😂😂😂
Fair enough! I don't think you are giving enough credit to the lava lamp though :)
