“DON’T” Do It Yourself – Pt. 4

In the 140 years we have been providing insurance, we have seen some pretty wild things. The lengths people will go to in order to save a buck or two never ceases to amaze us.

We thought it was time to throw open the pages of our insurance reports and share with you some of the most “resourceful” and “imaginative” solutions we’ve come across.

We call this monthly series “DONT” Do it Yourself. We think you will understand why…

Disclaimer: Lambton Mutual Insurance does not advise recreating the following “resourceful” ideas. We are not responsible for fires, flooding, electrocutions or divorces. Please DON’T do these things yourself!


To celebrate environmental month, reduce, reuse and recycle! Try these crafty recycling inspirations around the house. Make the world a better place…kinda.


Keep water bottles out of the landfill!… use them to plug your cleanout.


When football season ends, give your jockstrap a second life.


Stray garbage lid? ….anyone?


Leftover pieces of foil don’t need to end up in the trash! Put them together to make a water heater flue pipe. Obviously.
