What have you repaired lately?

I noticed that my towels are looking a bit tattered around the edges yesterday and after they get washed again I’m going to zigzag all around the edges with my sewing machine.  They are in great condition other than few slightly frayed parts so I thought I might as well just fix them now!  This…

The Best Advice about Money I have ever received
