I hate how my boots slouched to the side and anytime I would grab a pair or move something they would fall. I knew I needed something to put down in them to make them stand up like they do in the stores. I kept checking at TJ Maxx, but our local one is usually hit or miss so late one night while organizing my closet I came up with my own solution.
I never throw away the plastic bags I get anytime I grocery shop or shop for anything else. I have millions of them and that's what I decided to use for this. I took one bag and filled it with 4 to 5 crumbled bags and then tied the first bag around itself tightly and in the shape I needed. Very simple. I've seen where you can cut a pool noodle up and do the same thing, but I didn't have one of those handy nor did I want to go out and get one when I could do it for free. Not to mention it was like 1:30 in the morning. Odd, I know - but the middle of the night is when I have the most energy sometimes. I think it has to do with juggling a 10 month old, an ornery puppy, and a relentless kitten all day. The middle of the night, when everyone is sleeping, is the only time I have to myself. =P
Well that's my simple DIY on how to make your boots stand up. Not only do they look better sitting in your closet, but you don't get that annoying crease in the boot where they fold over. I hope you enjoyed this post and I look forward to reading your comments of any DIY's you would like to share!
