Winter ReBoot

(I'm also rebooting this column, first published 12/10/09)
 As I was grudgingly going through my boot collection in preparation for Jack Frost hitting the Midwest this week, I remembered a helpful tip I learned a few years ago. 

We're all looking for ways to reuse, renew and recycle these days, so here's a way to recycle your old magazines and keep your tall boots in shape.

It's simple. Roll up a magazine (I like "meatier" mags like Vogue or O) and put one in each boot. 
The boots will stand at attention ready for you, whether you wear them on a daily basis or need to store them during the warmer months.
This technique is a far more reasonable alternative to pricey boot trees:
If you look at this the way I do (and I really hope you don't), the money saved on buying boot trees will allow you to BUY MORE BOOTS!

Mmmm.....warmer months........

Stop taunting me, Atlantis commericals. 
I may just have to take you up on a winter mini-vacay.
I'm ready for it after a day and a half. 
What a whiner!
