Where Possible, Repair Clothing.
Many minor clothing issues are easily resolved with a bit of thread and a needle. Rather than tossing a shirt with a fraying seam or a missing button, do the simple repair yourself and get a lot more life out of that garment.
Youâll be amazed how this simple behaviour can cut your annual spend on new clothes.
