Live on Less – Money Saving Tips: Stop the Run in Your Hose

Are you looking for some simple ways to live on less? We have simple solutions that you can easily apply to your lifestyle to save money!

 Once they get a hole, pantyhose can run quicker than a sprinter doing the 100 meter dash.


And having to buy and re-buy pantyhose can get pricey.

Here’s a little trick I use when I get a hole in my hose, but remember you have to catch it early for this to be worth it.

As soon as you get the slightest run or hole in your nylons, take them off.  Then, paint clear nail polish along the border of the hole.  Let the polish dry before putting your nylons back on.

Hairspray also works as a quick fix if you’re on-the-go.  Just spray some hairspray wherever you have the hole or run and that will help prevent expanding.  Any brand of hairspray works.  The “super hold” type of hair sprays work best.

    Great article! I to am a Happy Housewife and I just adore your blog! A lot of what you say is so true… its all about simplifying things. We cut down on a lot of our exspenses but sitting down and literally taking a pen and paper to things. For us eating out was an issue ( i know i should cook more) and now we are creating a meal plan on Sundays to find where we can save and what we can make at home. Also- we had ridiculously high costing cellphone plans and after my hesitation on switching to a prepaid phone we finally jumped ship and switched to a company called tracfone. Extremely reliable and most importantly- saving between the two of us and one child – 3 phones we are saving 160 dollars a month. We each got a smartphone like some samsung ( sorry not totally tech literate) and we have this family plan with no contract and no fees and i mean just each month it is so nice to know that money will be saved. bills are tough but this is one thing that has sorta been a blessing in disguise!
