Wear It Out, Replace Wisely

Wear It Out, Replace Wisely

Am I shopping for fun? And what’s going on with the clothes I already have? Here is how I break it down:

#7 out of 10 Ways I Save: Use it up, wear it out. Why am I buying jeans? Because my last pair died. There was a hole in the crotch. holes in the knees can be overlooked for a time, but these jeans had truly lived out their days. (And I recycled them! More on that later.)

#8: Replace wisely. First of all, does it need to be replaced? In the case of my jeans, the answer is yes. I had only one remaining pair. I need 2 pairs of jeans for my kind of lifestyle–no more, no less. I had two choices: One, shop online for a pair of skinny’s. Two, check out the consignment shop. $8 at the consignment shop got me what I needed. Not the most amazing pair of jeans in the world, but hey, I am in the market for a house, not BCBG denim.

tips #7 and #8 refer specifically to clothing but could be expanded.

What do you think? Pass on your tips to me! I am your student. Teach me.

Cheers, Frugally Yours,

Western Woman

PS See that picture of me with the purple hair? Everything I am wearing came to me second hand, except for the boots, which I purchased on sale 6 years ago. And I like my look, if I do say so myself 😛
