I buy a lot of my son's clothing on eBay--he quickly grows out of things or stains them, and you can find some great deals on there! So it's a thrifty option! Anyway, I had gotten him a pair of Old Navy jeans, but before he could wear them, he got a hold of a Sharpie marker! There were some marks on the jeans that I couldn't get out, despite LOTS of trying!
I hated to throw the jeans out, so I finally bought a few firefighter patches (also from eBay!) and sewed them over the marks. I also bought a very cute, barely worn firefighter shirt at a local thrift store. The end result was that I not only saved the jeans, but he had a cute outfit that got compliments! It pays to be creative and thrifty!
What a nice idea to cover over a stain. Does the Salvation Army or the GoodWill sell name brand clothing such as Old Navy?
If you could buy your son's clothing in the thrift shops it would save you a lot of money on shipping costs.
