Keep a box or drawer for extra buttons and thread. Put the buttons that come with new clothes in the box and hang on to them in case you need them. Then ask a friend or family member to teach you how to sew (or watch some videos online). Fixing a small tear or replacing a button immediately instead of throwing an item into the back of the closet is a great way to extend the life of your clothes and keep them in rotation.

Repair before washing
If you do need to do a repair on a hole or tear, do it before you wash your clothes, otherwise the hole will get bigger.
