This is a good idea if you’re doing any on-your-knees gardening, cleaning or just crawling around on the floor.

Take that old, comfortable-but-less-than-flattering pair of pants out of the thrift-store donation bag. Sew a patch on each knee, leaving the top side of the patch open…as though you’ve sewn a pocket on each knee.

Then, in each pocket, place a sponge…or a substantial shoulder pad…or a piece of foam rubber. These protective pads will make a big difference in your on-the-knee gardening or cleaning endurance.
