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:
- Low cost per wear
- In need of repair
Except this time, I purchased new laces instead.
Do you prefer to repair or replace items?
