Great DIY tutorial on how to fix mini blinds that are broken! My kids break them all the time. Great apartment living tip that will save money!

You need to know how to fix broken mini blinds if you have kids or a naughty pet that repeatedly love to break and damage them. It's actually way easier, and cheaper than I thought to do your own mini blind repair!We live in an apartment, like a bajillion other people, so every window comes pre-installed with white mini-blinds. The apartment contract and rules state that the mini-blinds need to be free from damages in order to help keep up appearances. Broken mini blinds apparently equal ghetto apartment complex. To keep future residents interested in renting, via the pristine mini-blinds, they periodically replace any broken ones ...
