Conquest of the day


My son’s soccer boots have lost yet another stud.  Replacement studs only cost $1.80. But now that my supply has run out, I have to go up to Takapuna again (read $3-$5 petrol + my time) to get some more.  Or do I?

Last night I went into the loft and got down a pair of boots I have in reserve for next year (that’s another blog posting) and simply removed a stud from one boot and put it on his existing boot.

That of course leaves me with a stud missing from next year’s boot. So today, I picked up a pair of second hand little kids soccer boots  for $1 – and have removed the studs.  So now I have 12 spares, for $1 in total, and less time/petrol that it would involve going to Stirling Sports.
