The things I need to mend!

Following on from yesterday where I decided to put a put a stop to the shopping, I wanted to get started on mending stuff and where better to start than finding the things I need to mend… This picture doesn’t do my mending pile justice – it includes:

  • 11 tops 
  • 2 bras
  • 1 pair of shorts
  • 8 pairs of trousers
  • 7 bags
  • 1 wash basket
  • 1 apron
  • 1 saucepan lid
  • Approx 7 toys (i’m not sure they can all be saved)
  • 1 pair of shoes
In total that is 40 things! I don’t even think that is everything, but it will do for now as it that pile is going to keep me busy for a while – I’m going to be having some fun on my mending spree! I won’t get a chance to actually do any mending for a few days, but at least I know the size of the problem now…
So far I have given up shampoo, supermarkets, buying new things and I’m preparing to give up single use plastic too as part of My Year of Eco Challenges . If you have a moment I would really appreciate it if you would consider sponsoring me with an action on my DoNation page.
