Recently I lost my belt. My pants can't stay up without my belt. Yesterday my pants fell off so much I had to take out my wallet, phone, and keys to reduce drag; then I got locked out of work when I went outside to see the sunshine. It makes me unhappy.
Instead of spending all my hard earned money, how about find another use for a used bicycle innertube!? Even new, this makes for a stylish 5$ belt.
Step 1: Pants Better Than Ever
Get a (used) bicycle innertube and put it through your belt loops kind of like a regular belt. Instead of a belt buckle to connect the ends, your going to tie a knot. I put my knot to one side for style points.
Now that my pants fit good again I can carry on with my life.
