Shoe Repairs DIY!

So here I am excited about this pair of shoes I found at the thrift store! I am excited about quick flipping (the fast profit that I would be getting from selling on ebay). I get home, ready to list the shoes on e-bay only to find the sole of the shoe is falling off ūüė¶

Well there can only be 2 things, throw them out or fix them!  Never repaired a shoe in my life but here goes!
I went on Amazon, looked up a few options and ended up getting ‘Shoe Goo’. It cost about $7 with free shipping.

Shoe Goo was delivered in a couple days and I was so excited to try it out, I waited for my 2 toddlers and hubby to go to bed and got myself a pair of non-sterile gloves , Lysol Disinfectant Spray, wipes , the goo and a pair of scissors.

It worked like magic! The shoes are currently in a hiding place drying up, it says to let them dry for at least 24 hrs, but I think I will do the max of 72.

To reattach a sole to a shoe:

  • Make sure¬†the shoe and sole area that needs fixing are clean.
  • Apply the shoe glue to both the sole and the bottom of the shoe, if it’s any easier completely remove the entire sole and work from basics.
  • Wait 2 minutes before you ¬†line up the sole with the bottom of the shoe evenly and press together to¬†make contact.
  • Wipe off any excess glue visible on the outside
  • Place a heavy object¬†on top of your shoe to add pressure
  • Wait 24 – 72 hours for glue to¬†dry.

How to remove pilling from clothing

The other day I stumbled upon a post on how people get rid of pilling (lint) on clothes especially sweaters/jerseys and anything made of wool and/or fleece. I was so excited because the only thing I knew was to use a comb or manually pluck out each pill. (I know!!)

I have been feeling so bad because I wore one of my hubby’s sweaters , ended up with pills with no idea of how to effectively get rid of them

I just have to share this because I know a lot of people get rid of their clothes once they start showing signs of pills because they do not know how to get rid of pilling

I received this fabric shaver in the mail this morning and could not wait to try it. I ended up shaving about 4 sweaters out of excitement. It is magic!!!! You have to have it!

See my before and after pictures below. It is easy to use and very effective.

 

I found it on Amazon, if you want to check it out. Click on the image below. It is so worth it, especially for thrifters!! ( You know what  I mean)

Hatchimals vent!

A week before thanksgiving I remember seeing these animals on eBay for $59 and a a day after thanksgiving they were out of stock or in select stores/online stores selling for $200 plus. I wondered what the hype was and decided to do more research on them. Ok! Seriously, these eggs apparently hatch an animal and you have to nurture that animal and help it grow etcetra. I would love to explain more but I was left speechless after realizing the amount of money people are spending on these eggs. I am not sure how to describe my reaction, but for a toy or an egg $200 is no joke.  Please do not judge me, I might not be understanding the moral behind these eggs and maybe someone can explain to me. Take a look at the reviews on Amazon and tell me if something is wrong with me. I honestly feel sorry for the animals and not the ones spending.
