The cheap & easy way to replace broken tabs on vertical blinds

Vertical blinds have been the vain of my existence, I can’t stand ’em but after recently moving to a new home with them, I am once again stuck with them. The vertical slats fall off often & frequently the top tabs that hold the slats in place break. Instead of purchasing costly repair tabs, I recently discovered an easy and FREE method of repairing them. All that is needed is toothpicks & transparent tape.
Simple tape 2 toothpicks in place horizontally across the top short side of the slat. You can then simply pop the toothpicks into the clips that hold the vertical slats. That’s it! Wish I would’ve thought of this years ago! :)
