Have a broken or worn out drawstring in the hood of a coat? It can be repaired! Here is a simple photo tutorial that shows you exactly how to do it.
After 11 years as an Army Officer, Jenn Fowler traded her combat boots for tennis shoes. She combined her love of writing with her passion for saving money to create Frugal Upstate in Jan 06. Over the years her focus has evolved from simply saving money to making her home and family more sustainable. “Frugal ~ Sustainable ~ Prepared” has become her mantra as she continuously works on transforming her ¾ acre village lot in Upstate NY into a “Frugal Village Homestead”. When she’s not writing, photographing, gardening, cooking, preserving or reading, Jenn enjoys spending time with her husband “Yankee Bill” and their two kids, “Buddy” and “Princess”.
