Save a Sweater–Shave a Sweater: Thoroughly Thrifty Thursday

Thoroughly Thrifty ThursdaySpring seems as if it has finally come to our neck of the woods! Every time I thought about putting away the coats and sweaters, the temperature would drop back down to the 30’s. My 10 day forecast says it will be in the 70-80″s and not get below 50 degrees. Let’s hope it sticks! So with that in mind, I think it’s finally time to pack up the winter clothes. If you are in a location that is heading to spring, you might be thinking about packing those coats, scarves, and sweaters away too. As you check through your clothes to see what will still be nice for next winter, don’t be too quick to toss out those pilled sweaters.

The other day, I had a shrug that looked like it would not be redeemed. It had gotten washed with a napkin and there was little white specks and pilled spots all over. I remembered the sweater shaver I had tucked away in a drawer in my desk. It worked so well, it got me thinking about my other sweaters and some of the sweaters we picked up at thrift stores.Purple sweater 1Purple sweater 2Purple wool sweaterBird sweaterBird Sweater

Sweater Shavers can cost anywhere between $6-$25, which can save you a lot of money if can save a sweater and not have to buy new ones next year. Also, if you are wanting to sell some of those sweaters because they don’t fit or aren’t your style anymore, you might be able to get more out of them if they look less worn.
