thinking outside the ‘Big Box Store’

My hubby was asking for a garden knee pad, the kind that saves your knees from aching after kneeling in the garden, something like this: Kneeling Pad

We thought instead of using an old yoga mat, so as always, Goodwill saved the day! My hubby found one at Goodwill for $3.99, scrubbed it down with the garden hose and soap, then cut it into strips with a box cutter. Instead of buying one brand new foam “kneeling pad” for $12, we got six large strips of foam all for $4! Enough to have one for each of us, and also to double up for extra comfort! Yay!

  1. My boyfriend did something similar and brought me home a knee pad he made at work with some sort of foam and duct tape! It isn’t the prettiest but it sure does work ;)

      exactly, it’s going to be used in rain or shine, in prickly weeds, or mud, it doesn’t have to look pretty, just be functional :)
