One thing you may not know about me is I'm thrifty. Maybe even cheap {God knew what he was doing when he matched me with the most generous man on the planet}. I grew up in a family of 11 kids, on a missionary budget, so I come from frugal stock. I remember my mom using this trick on a tiny pair of red shoes to make them last through multiple kids. At my house I have a lot more crayons than shoe-shine materials so this is my go-to fix-it. {sharpies work too!} #me #my_365 #momhack #lifehack @momlife_365 #crayola #boots
