Have you ever heard of the phrase,
"Use it up . . . Wear it out . . . Make it do . . . Or do without?"
I've heard it a time or two I have to say, but it hasn't been
until lately that I have really tried to apply it in my home.
YOU CAN REALLY SAVE MONEY
when you take on that motto!
We live in a time when a lot of things are just
considered disposeable it seems, but hopefully with a
different perspective . . . that will change.
When was the last time you fixed a button, or hemmed a pair of pants?
And how many of you have ever DARNED a sock?
No . . . that's not what you say when you lose one in the washer!
Instead of throwing the holey sock away . . . YOU FIX IT!
I only ever remember DARNING a sock
in Sewing 4 H as a part of one of the requirements!
(Oh yah . . . I was Mrs. Wooley one year with my reversable wool vest and matching pleated skirt!)
Ahhhhhh . . . the glory days!
