wfmw - high heels.

if you're like me, you hate it when your high heels start to wear out. 

you get frustrated because you feel like the shoe is just fine, but the heel is messed up.

the  nail is starting to show through.
you make that little, annoying, clicking noise [different from the regular] when you walk.
you know that you're going to have to get rid of the shoes, but you just can't do it quite yet.

well, last year i thought i was smart.

i found a place in the mall that would repair high heels.
it was fabulous.
i would drop off my shoes when i got to the mall.
shop around and come back an hour later.
pay the man $10 - $15.
and go home with like-new heels.

the only problems with this plan?

the mall close to your house [and where i live now] does not have a little store like that.
you don't want to pay $10 - $15 to get them fixed.

well, never fear!

a friend at work told me about these little things!

you can get a pack of 8 [four pairs] for $2.99 at target.

then, you get your fabulous husband to repair your heels for free.

using a pair of pliers, pull out the old nail.

insert the new tips.

and hammer them in.

and your heels are like new again!

and the best part? 

it only cost you $2.99.

and a blow pop sucker.

head on over to kristen's blog, we are that family, for more great tips.


  1. That is an AWESOME tip! I'm off to get some as soon as possible!!!!!

  2. If I wore high heels this would be great.....:)

  3. good to know! i use to pay $15 to get mine repaired but now i just don't wear heels!

  4. wonderful idea! i'm in serious need. where do you get these fabulous things? and do they come with a worker man to take care of the issue too??

  5. you can get them at target :)

    and i think the worker man will be packaged seperately. you could always consider purchasing the security guard that stands at the door next to his segway!

  6. I was definitely waiting on the blow pop sucker part! He's so darn handy!

  7. What a great idea...and such a nice husband to fix your heels for you :) Thanks for sharing!

  8. I must get the laundry nazi to fix my heels! He has a hammer....and a new bag of suckers that i got him for valentines day....its finding the heels that will prove to be difficult! ;)

    Nice job! Maybe you need to setup the worker man a kiosk at your local mall so he can be fixing heels for all the ladies!

  9. WOW! I had no idea they made something like this! I have to get to Target right away :) Thanks so much for the great tip!

  10. Who knew? Great tip. I was paying the cobbler to fix them.

  11. I had no idea you could just buy new tips. I don't mind paying for mine to be repaired. It is the dropping them off and picking them up that gets me. Apparently, I am lazy. :)

  12. LOOOOOVE the pics of jordan :) what a great worker man :) tell him hi for me! miss y'all!

  13. FAbulous husband!! Love the "new" heels.
