Hello Frugal Confessions Readers!
Today is another installation of the Frugal Confessions Series I am trying to launch. Read all about it here.
When I was in college, I read on a financial blog somewhere that you can use a black sharpie marker to color in areas on black shoes to make them last longer (like if the shoe leather was cracked and glaring white was showing from underneath). Well, I had this beautiful black cardigan sweater (from about the age of 16–you do the math as to how old it was at that point:)), and accidentally bleached it one day while doing laundry, leaving about a quarter-sized blotch of white on the shirt.
So…I took a sharpie marker and colored in the bleach spot! It turned out to be a slightly brownish-looking black compared with the black color of the sweater, but it lasted another year or two!
Now it’s your turn! Share with me and our other readers your stories of frugalness.
And most of all, have a great Friday!
