One of the best ways to save money is to either purchase clothing cheap or re-purpose it. People sometimes don’t even realize how much money we put towards clothes. And when the colors start to fade and our favorite shirt gets a stain, we usually just buy another one. It doesn’t have to be like that!
Instead of throwing out old clothes and purchasing new ones, you should try out these 13 clothing hacks. These do it yourself tricks can help make your clothes look brand new again and make them last longer. These tips can also help you re-purpose clothes into something entirely new, like turning a t-shirt into a tank top.
If you are saving money while still keeping your clothes looking good, it is a win-win situation.
So the next time you get a lipstick stain on your shirt or you tear up your favorite jeans, put off throwing them out and see if you can use any of these clothing hacks to save them.
