“A stick in time saves nine” is as applicable to household repairs as it is to the tear in Carl’s trousers. Broken things are often neglected because of the inconvenience of taking them somewhere to be repaired. Responses to the question “what things about your home need repair” show that there is much furniture, chairs especially, which need repair. Money is saved by the family which does its own household repairing.
