Repair Don’t Replace

New laces instead of new boots.

New laces instead of new boots.

As I shop less often, and keep items longer, I’m starting to run into a new issue with my wardrobe—repairs!  These lace up booties have been worn 92 times for a current cost per wear of $1.96.  The laces ripped for the boot on the right.  In the past, any slight problem with an item in my wardrobe and I was off to the malls to shop for something to replace it.  These booties have two factors that would have previously caused me to shop for a replacement:

  1. Low cost per wear
  2. In need of repair

Except this time, I purchased new laces instead.

Do you prefer to repair or replace items?
