Iron the patches on to the inside of the jeans and make sure you put a piece of paper or wax paper between the legs.
Then iron them on and viola the jeans can go maybe another month.
- Crazy 8 (a Gymboree company)
These brands have never lasted me more than a month..... maybe even 2 weeks:
- Target in store brand
- Wal-mart in store brand
- Khol's in store brand
The top brand will run you more money upfront but if they last for at least 3 months then you save money because if you bought the cheaper thinner one's you would have bought 3 pairs.
Gymboree and Gap run great sales. At the end of season I usually stock up on a size up for the next season.
To make the jeans last even longer... iron on the patch to the inside of the jeans when you first purchase them.
