Save on Children’s Shorts

With summer coming, it’s a good time to go through your family’s wardrobe to see what’s needed for the warmer weather. It’s pointless to spend a lot of money for shorts for your children when they’re just going to be playing outside in them. Instead, if they have pants that still fit through the body, but are not long enough, or the knees have holes in them, just cut them off and hem into shorts. Don’t know how to hem? It’s easy.

Other inexpensive ways to acquire shorts are at yard sales, resale shops and consignment shops. Now that you know how to hem, you don’t need to restrict your search to just shorts.
