Another way I save cash is to mend our clothing.
Today I needed to do a bit of mending on Harvey's favorite pj pants and jeans.
This is what the pj pants looked like before I fixed them.
And this is what they looked like after.
The jeans were a bit harder to fix as the tear was very close to the seam and another repair I had made previously.
I cut a small piece of denim from one of the recycled denim squares (I cut up old jeans and such to make quilts), pinned it behind this tear.
This is what it ended up looking like
After I fixed them and showed them to Harvey, he offhandedly mentioned that he was going to throw them out (by that he meant give them to me to recycle). Hmmm, don't think so dear.
Saved a bundle today doing this as new clothing for him to replace these items would have cost close to $40.00. Total cost to mend them was about 30 minutes of my time and some thread that was in my stash.
Everybody have a wonderful evening.
