You have had to be living under a rock to not know what's going on in our economy. Because of that, I did something that I'm pretty sure I haven't done since 8th grade home-ec class. I "fixed" a pair of pants that needed some help. I purchased a needle and thread and fixed the clasps on a pair of pants.
In the not so distant past, I would have just went out and purchased a new pair and would have said goodbye to the old. But now, I've taken a new approach on saving a few dollars (or in this case at least 50) whenever and wherever I can.
What changes have you made to save a few bucks?
