Save Smarter Challenge - Day 4: Get on the Mend
Repair your clothes, shoes, coats, etc. instead of trashing them or buying new.
Pick up a $3 sewing kit at the drugstore and get to work! Put buttons back in their place. Sew up holes in your clothes. Don't know how to sew? So not a problem -- learn how here!
Bring your shoes to the cobbler as long as they can be repaired and you'll spend next to nothing for like-new shoes. Cut jeans or other pants into shorts. Get creative and put together new outfits with old clothes and accessories. Consider browsing your local Goodwill or other thrift stores for great pieces at super-low prices. Have fun getting creative with low-cost fashions and you might be surprised at how creative you are -- you may even become a trendsetter!
