I’m a mom of 3, a veteran and military spouse. I’ve moved into 20+ homes all around the world. My passion is helping busy people make the space and time for what’s really important to them.
Great idea! Simple yet genius and thrifty! Found from Stonecottage.
Awesome idea! This is a keeper!
Thanks, Heather. I love that it’s free! 😉
Hi Susan – Brilliant. Simply brilliant. And then there is me who spent too much money on those boot holder uppers. Sigh… I need to hang out with you more often and learn more of your creative ideas! Hugs, Holly
Holly, I think “creative” is your nice way of saying cheap. 😉
I never would have thought of that!
Dianna, It’s gotten to where I look at everything twice before it goes into the recycle bin trying to find a repurpose use for it.
SO smart!! I’ve got to take care of this, pronto!
I use empty wine bottles, works great!
I use old rolled up magazines or sometimes paper grocery bags
another inexpensive way is to go to the dollar store and get the $1 fun noodles for the pool and cut them to fit your boots and stick them inside….could be cheaper than buying water bottles if you don’t already have them and they can be adjusted to any boot height.
That’s a good idea! We use old rolled magazines to keep our boots up.
I like to use thick rolled up magazines once I am finished with them. They work really well and allow air to flow through. Plastic bottles are another great repurpose.
wow!! great idea!
This is a great idea, Susan! I use rolled up magazines for my boots. But, I still manage to throw them in my closet..LOl
Thanks for sharing at Throwback Thursday.
brilliant! thanks for sharing on craft schooling sunday!
I use legal size pendaflex files. One for each foot is enough, rolled lengthwise. As it tries to unfurl, it holds up the boots instead, filling the space of the leg quite nicely. They work well especially for the longer boots.
I love this tip! It is the perfect example of the fact that you don’t need to spend a lot of money to be organized. Plus, if you ever move, you can recycle these bottles and just get a new version in the new location… one fewer item to move!
Exactly! 🙂 After 5 moves in 6 years, I had to find ways to organize that are easy to recycle and are inexpensive.
I use old “Pringles” canisters or stacked cookie canisters for my boots. SInce they are mostly cardboard (the sides) they do mark with rust marks or stay moist if the boots are moist when I need to put they away.
Louise, another creative idea! Thanks for sharing.
