Yeah, I’m Cheap

I’m cheap! I’ll be the first to admit it. There are just some things that it pains me to shell out money for. And the biggest one is getting my pants hemmed.

If you don’t know by now, I’ll clue you into something. I’m short. Not just short. But short. As in under 5 foot short {4’11 3/4″ to be exact}.

At my surprise baby shower, I had not one, not two, but three people ask me why I had tape on my jeans.

Since I refuse to get my pants hemmed, I have resorted to taping them. I have tried the no-sew hem tape {doesn’t work well with jeans} but packing tape seems to work the best! It’s quick, easy, and you can change the length of the hem whenever you want.

I know there are some new products out there that would probably work better but I am too lazy and, again, too cheap to test them out right now!
