MUM revealed its clever money-saving tactic when her daughter ordered expensive Nike products for Christmas — some say it’s not fair, but others think it’s a great idea.
Mam Shelby said her 10-year-old daughter wanted Nike products for Christmas, but she figured out how to please her daughter and save some money.
She explained, “My 10-year-old has ordered a lot of Nike products this year. So $10 to win – since she’s growing so fast and I don’t feel like spending hundreds on something that fits her for two months.”
She showed off a sweatshirt she bought for $7.98 (£5.96), and used heat press to embellish the jacket with the Nike logo.
Many appreciated the mother’s clever strategy – especially since her little daughter will quickly grow out of clothes.
A supportive commenter asked, “She works so hard for her money, so why spend more when the kids are growing up so fast?” , while another wrote: “Go mom! The improvisation method. I bet your daughter will love them!”
However, others have been more critical of the mothers’ approach to DIY.
“Don’t you think your son will notice the mark???” , asked one of them, and another said: “But you can withstand this heat pressure yourself …”
A third added, “The poor kid will feel embarrassed when the other kids notice that it’s not the real Nike.”
A fourth said, “I would have understood this at any other time of the year but Christmas?? If you can have it, get it what you want?”
The mom responded to trolls who said the Nike logo would fade into a follow-up video.
She said: I hate her here. I hate the comments section of this video. Listen, when it flakes, I’ll kick the bottom of the trash can to lift the lid, and I’ll throw it in there. Because it was 7 bucks.
“I’ll tell her I succeeded, because I intend to make more.”
