With it being the time to break out your cold weather clothes, sweaters included, you might, like me, find some of your sweaters have seen better days. I hate to toss out something because of a hole or a stain, especially sweaters that aren't always the cheapest of my clothes. So I went on a hunt to find a way to reuse them. The ideas are so cute and make me want to go out and hit the thrift stores to find some sweaters just to get crafty!

I am a mom to 5 kids, homeschool mom, blogger, social media junkie, Frugalista, Book Worm, and Closet Want-to-be Chef. We are a Roadschool family (homeschooling on the road while traveling fulltime).
I grew up learning ways to save from my mom and grandma. I started my own coupon journey when my first child was born in 2009 and started the blog on 2010 when baby #2 was born to share my tips with everyone who kept asking about how I was getting diapers for $1 a pack!
