Necessity is the mother of invention. Or is it just dumb luck?

I keep seeing adverts on Facebook for Buckle-less belts.

Now, I hate belts, mainly because I hate anything pressing on my stomach and I also hate the bulge a buckle makes under my t-shirts, so when I saw this I thought ‘Amazing, sounds perfect, lets take a look.’ Then I saw the price. Roughly $25, not including shipping, is a bit much for a belt. At least it is for me.

So I gave up on my dream of keeping my pants up without hassle and then… Then I walked into a local home ware store and found elasticated sheet clip holder thingies.

And I admit, the whole belt thing wasn’t even on my mind, I just really wanted the clips to hold my fitted sheet on, since my fitted sheets are bigger than my mattress.

But then I got home and took one of the clips out of the packet and inspiration struck. 

I could use the clip as a buckle-less belt. And I did. And it worked. And its the best thing ever! And it only cost $4!!

Check it!

Its not quite the same, but it works, my pants no longer fall down and I dont have a buckle showing under my t-shirt.

I’m super proud of myself. Even if one corner of my fitted sheet keeps coming untucked.
