Resole Those Tired Old Shoes

Don't mind my fantasy shoes...
We don't have a cobbler around us, so when we headed to Indiana for Christmas I brought along all of my janky broken down shoes to be repaired at our local Meijer.  I had two pairs of leather knee high boots & a pair of heels that were down to little nubs instead of soles.

For the cost of $40 I had three pairs of shoes repaired & prettied up, far cheaper than even a single pair of boots.  Shoe repair is a totally green & totally frugal choice.  If you're able to find a cobbler near you, hit them up & get those  fixed, you won't be sorry.

  1. Last week at the cabin I sewed new soles of flannel on my favourite comfy socks. I repaired the soles twice before. This time I swear I will retire them when the holes reappear. I think I only paid $4 on sale after Christmas three years ago, but the tops are still good so I hate to give up on them. - Margy
