Do you have tall boots that flop over, or won't stand up on the shelf or bottom of your closet? I had this problem a few years ago, and I went to my go-to place for organization, The Container Store, for a solution. The solutions I found were kinda pricey though, so I set out to find a cheaper solution to my problem. I have been using my DIY Boot Shapers for a couple of years, and they work great, so I'm sharing it with you today.
It's the perfect time of year to share this secret because... (1) You need pool noodles for this project, (2) pool noodles become hard to find in fall and winter months, and (3) pool noodles are currently on sale!
I have always purchased my noodles at Walmart. Specifically, the monster noodles. I think they work best because they are bigger around than the regular pool noodles. They usually run about $8, which is still reasonable because you get 2 sets of shapers out of each noodle, so $4 per set doesn't sound too bad. BUT...they are on sale! As they are getting ready to get rid of the pool noodles for the season, I just scored one for $3.88. Let me do the math for you...that's $1.94 per set of boot shapers!
