$1 Budget: Cord, Mirror, Dip!
No, it's not a new dance move. It's stuff I've cobbled together this past month that you might find useful. Today's show is simplicity itself: a cheap extension cord (green!), an mirror for talent use, and a can of rubbery goo that you might need to goo-ify something metal like a spring clamp.
Tip: Extension Cords (and how to coil them)
