I can’t remember for he life of me how I found out about this tip. All I know is that I have been saving my wine bottles for a while to use as supports for my boots as shown in the photo above.  I think I have consumed enough wine to reach the total amount needed for each one. This venture requires one bottle per boot so drink responsibly*.

The boot stand made of wine bottles is a novel and frantastically frugal idea. Let me show you how this works.


Here you have my nice boots sagging to the floor. Those wine bottles will add to their lifespan and make room for other boots to stand beside them.

Once your bottles are empty, cleaned and completely dry, insert into boots.

That’s it!  The boots are standing on their own and ready for storage in your closet as pictured above. Boot stands can be very expensive but if you can gather up a few wine bottles, you’ll save loads.

Incidentally, you don’t have to indulge in wine to make this work. Non-alcoholic wine bottles will due or have friends save them up for you. Soak the labels off if you need to for peace-of-mind.

If you have fashion tips of your own. We would love to hear about them in the comment section.
