Easily make your own boot shaper for less than a dollar
I've been struggling for a while with that jumble of boots in my closet. It was such a mess - I couldn't take it any longer, so I started pricing out boot trees online, which can range from $12 - $25. No thanks. I set out to make my own for less than a dollar. Ready?

Step 1: Gather your materials

You only need three things to easily make your own boot shaper
Yes, just 4 simple ingredients for this DIY: your boots, a tape measure, a steak knife and pool noodle. A random assortment of characters, I agree.

Step 2: Measure the height of your boot, then subtract 2 inches. So for this boot, it was 16.5 inches so my final measurement was 14.5 inches.

Step 3: That's right, grab your hand little steak knife and get sawing. Much easier than sawing down trees.
