Cheap Kneeling Pads

By flaflwrgrl
June 24, 2013

When you look for kneeling pads, think outside the box. Now that summer is on its way, take a look in the water fun/swimming section. You can often utilize kiddie rafts and paddle floats as kneeling pads. At the end of summer, you can find them dirt cheap when they go on sale. I got this kiddie float raft, and it gives me more room plus extra padding at a fraction of the cost of conventional kneeling pads.

I don't "kneel" on my kneeling pad, I sit down on it.
And it's way too small for me to scoot around on.
This looks promising!

That's what I use, but yours is way bigger than the one I have! Yep, I sit on mine, too, so it would be great to find a bigger one like that. Thanks, will look for one.

Hilarious! Hilarious! Hilarious! I guess we all do the same thing. I sit on mine too!!!!! And this way I have room to scoot down w/o having to get up & move all my stuff 1 or 2 feet.

I'll tell you something else I do with them. I take one like the 1 pictured & cut it in 2 so I have 2 of them. I put 1 under the cabinet in each bathroom. When I go to scrub the tub I have the perfect knee pad right under the cabinet & my poor old knees don't have to bear the tile floor with no padding.
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

Oh gosh Marilyn, I don't remember & the tag is long gone now. I just look for the thickest one I can find.

I'll remember this when I finally get my old horse blanket too nasty to sit on anymore.....
In the end, only kindness matters.

Great idea Ann! Also love the idea of using one when cleaning the tubs! That is hard on the knees! For gardening, I've been using a really thick chaise lounge cushion that I no longer have the chaise lounge frame for. I had a spare, and gave that one to my Mom. She found out that she likes to lay down on it to do her yard work! Rolling on the floor laughing She gets in a nap at the same time!

Ann, I told my Mom about this idea, because I knew she would love it too! She said she'll look for one soon, and put it under her chaise lounge pad. That way, when she falls asleep while watering, the pad won't get wet! Hilarious! I need to get one too, especially for cleaning the bathtubs! I love that idea as much as using it in the garden!
