I keep saying to myself that I should buy a new, more decent looking bag. Why? In the last few weeks I have sewn up a well-used bag where the handle had become “unhinged”. My smaller handbag just needs a bit of a clean and the zipper had come off so I replaced it with a simple keyring-ring. My smallest handbag also needs sewing (the strap fell off). Or I could cut it off and use it as a clutch… but I think I would get more wear out of it over the shoulder. That’s three bags.
I recently mended a hoodie that wasn’t being worn because of a small hole that got pulled on the front ( you know the ones) – a couple of stitches and it will do for running around the house. And also a pair of jeans got saved and will happily be in use for a little longer, (why is it always the nicest pair of jeans that seem to fall apart first?)
The money I didn’t spend on these new things can be put towards finishing the 10k savings goal. At the end of next month I could be approaching 7k :-)
