Tip # 54 Learn to sew!
OK, I admit, I don't own a sewing machine and I don't really know how to sew, but imagine if I did. I could do my own alterations, sew on loose buttons, and fix small snags or tears in clothes! Think about the money (both the cost of the clothes and the cost of repairs) you could save! I actually have managed to reattach buttons and have fumbled through fixing some small holes in shirts and pants thanks to a little sewing kit my mom gave me several years ago. This should definitely go on my To Do list.
