That is the theme of my life! So much so, that it's caused mild hoarding issues, but I am happy to say I am successfully dealing with those! As a couple, my husband and I are very practical. Sometimes we drive ourselves crazy with just how practical we are. Our main thoughts when out and about are usually along these lines: "Do we really need this?" or "Is it necessary to buy this or do this?" or "How long can we put this purchase off?" or my absolute favorite, "I could easily make that myself!"
This week, I crossed off a project on my "I can do that myself and for cheaper," list. About a week ago, the girls and I were visiting a friend. While they were playing outside, they found the sandbox, and fell in love with it. I remember seeing those huge sandboxes at stores and thought, "Now really, my kids do not need anything that big. I could make one myself." And that's just what I did:
So, those are a few of my thrifty and repurposing projects lately. The next one on my list is to work on sewing up some summer clothes for the girls. I'll be trying to destash my fabric and clothes that need to be repurposed. Anyone else out there have this habit? Or am I just weird?
