Na Na pinches her pennies (aka frugal living)

Shh… don't tell anyone I'm poor. They all think I'm living frugal and green just like everyone these days. This is a blog about a senior citizen living a frugal life, on a fixed income, in a low income food desert, and passing along knowledge from lessons learned. Some she learned from her Grandma Mama many years ago and some learned only a few days ago.

Make your own to save money

Do you want to save money in your clothing budget?  Are you interested in recycling or upcycling when possible?  Do you have a bunch of t-shirts you no longer wear but they are just too darned good to throw away?


Are you tired of spending money on undies that last barely past a couple of washings?  Or paying money for undies that never quite fit?  How about making your own undies from those t-shirts?  Here is an upcycle tutorial for you.  Click on the photo below to be taken to the post with instructions to make them yourself.  Let me warn you that the post is very long and has lots of photos for step by step instructions.  You will need a basic knowledge of sewing and use of a sewing machine.

t-shirtpanties0371I wrote the post back in 2009.  You will need a basic knowledge of sewing and the use of a sewing machine.  If you use the instructions I would love to know if the post helped you to make your own.
