Sunday Savings on the Homestead Weeks 7-9: Sewing Kits, Mend Something, and Fix Something Else

Every Sunday I will be posting a Sunday Savings on the Homestead. This posts will concentrate on one money saving thing you and I can do to save money for the week. Some will be easy, some will be be a bit difficult, and all will concentrate on one way to save money for the week. Please join me in trying to live a frugal life in 2015!

This Sunday Savings on the Homestead combines the last three weeks. Not on purpose, but it does flow together beautifully. We have been very busy and I have had a lot of things slide to the back burner.

However, now it is time to start cracking on those things. One of the things I find essential to saving money is having a sewing kit. I mend a lot of clothing, sheets, and blankets by hand. I have only had a sewing machine for a year so I still do a lot by hand. This week's challenges will focus on this!

1. Buy yourself a sewing kit. This does not have to be elaborate. Heck, I love the little sewing kits with a clear top and red bottom plastic bottoms. I carry one of those with me all the time. These will save you money in the end so get you one!

2. Mend something. I have one of the girl's camis to fix this week. The binding has come apart from the material. I already fixed the other side, but this side has now come apart.


3. Fix something in the house. Might only be a toy that needs a bit of super glue, but fix something! Dane has a couple of toys that need fixing this week so he can enjoy them again.

Don't you feel better with those little things done? I know I always do!

Thanks for reading,
Erica
