Necessity is the Mother of Invention. And the Slutty Second Cousin of Improvisation.
Turns out, practical storage solutions for people with crutches is a bit of a black hole.
Like, it’s fucking summer. I don’t wanna have to wear a jacket just so I have somewhere for my keys/wallet/phone. My clothes don’t have pockets (the ‘joy’ of women’s clothing), a rucksack is overkill, and a fannypack is just…no.
Crutch pods are a thing, but they’re completely open-topped so don’t seem particularly secure both in terms of keeping shit in them while moving, and not getting your shit swiped.
Y'all over the puddle have a few things on the market, like the Krutch Kaddy, but once shipping and customs is factored in, the price gets…well not *prohibitive*, but expensive, and transit times are a crapshoot.
So while the plan is to eventually get one, I need a more immediate solution for now.
Then it hit me.
A bicycle top tube bag should work as a cheap and cheerful temporary solution. And what do ya know? It does the job.Well done, brain. You still have something to offer this flesh prison 😝.
