Can ‘geek parties’ save you money?


In our modern gadget-obsessed society, we are often more likely to wait to get a new product, rather than attempt to repair our current one when it is broken.

Restart is an international movement which aims to buck this trend. It educates people on how to do basic repairs to everyday objects, from digital cameras to kettles.

At “parties” around the world, experts gather to help people who bring along broken items.

They do the repairs themselves, while demonstrating what they are doing, to demystify the process.

LJ Rich went to a Restart party in Camden, London, to learn more.

This is wonderful. Restart Parties for all!
