Each year when it turns warm we have a few problems. My kids have outgrown a lot of their pants and it’s hard to find shorts that are long enough for girls. What is up with the shorty shorts anyway?
My daughter usually has such cute jeans with embroidery, flowers, and jewels on them. It’s a shame to let go of good pants just because they are too short.
A few years ago I decided that I would take a pair of worn out jeans and make them into shorts. As you can see in the picture, these jeans were worn out in the knees.
Now we have cute shorts that are long enough and they didn’t cost us any money. Reusing old pants is a great way to save money on your summer wardrobe.

I am loving these end of summer sales. They are the best time to stock up on seasonal summer clothes for the whole family.
I have found nice dress sandals for work for $12-20 per pair. I also bought my daughter some shorts, shorts, and bathing suits. Many of them were at least 75% off. During a recent shopping trip, I found five bathing suits for myself and only paid $17 for all of them!
You don’t have to pay full price for clothing. If you shop clearance sales, you can pay less for name brand clothing than you would for a poorer quality product.
Do you shop end of season sales?
