Tackle it Tuesday: When to Pay Someone Else to Do It!

I am frugal. Some people would even say I'm cheap. I save all my leftovers and freeze them to make soup. I print on both sides of the paper. I save mailings that have only one side of the paper printed on to use in my own printer. It's a little bit obsessive.

And so I have had a pile of stuff that needed hemming that I just kept adding to. Sleeves shortened there. Pants hemmed there. It was building higher and higher, and I kept saying, "I'll get to it soon!".

Then I went shopping with my daughter last night for pants and she bought three pairs. All of which needed hemming.

And I said, enough was enough.

I bundled everything up and took it to a seamstress.

It's going to cost me $7 a pair, which is bad if you think that I could have done it myself. But the truth was I wasn't doing it myself. I was procrastinating. And so all these beautiful pairs of pants I've never worn.

Sometimes a tackle means that you get it done, even if it costs you something. Because sometimes we just need to be honest and say that our best intentions are never actually going to come true!

I don't have any pictures for you yet, but in two weeks I'll actually have some half decent winter slacks to wear. And then I will rejoice!

I pretty much do the same thing but try patching jeans when the hole is in the knee. What a pain. But they are comfortable.
