These gloves I got for free two winters ago and at that point they were already used.
Many others would toss them but we must not be tempted to do so.
I knitted the thumbs and darn/weaved the finger to strengthen the yarn that was worn.
I could have driven to a box store twenty minutes away and walked through the big store to find a lesser made glove, paid and come back home. This was there was no gas used and it took very little energy to fix them, plus it cost no money!
What are you doing to be more frugal???
