I've been back on crutches since the middle of November (although by the time you are reading this, I'm probably off them again). The first time, back in May, I horrifyingly discovered that not only couldn't I use one leg for walking, I had lost my hands because they had to hold the darn crutches! This had me totally confounded for several days but I gradually found that the waist band of my yoga pants could hold my travel coffee mug, a light tote bag was almost always slung over my shoulder to transport this and that, and pants with pockets became vital.
About the last week I was on those crutches someone told me that they actually make cup holders for them! I was so excited knowing I'd be going this way again soon. As soon as this last surgery was scheduled, I was on the search for the perfect cup holder. I started out looking for a traditional type cup holder - one that was solid and clamped on to the crutch rail. And then I stumbled on these little babies.
Crutcheze are really just two small pockets with some velcro. Totally easy to make yourself if you were so inclined but absolutely perfect for what I wanted. I ordered two. One for each side. I keep all my go everywhere with me essentials in one - my license, debit card, gas card, lip balm and phone. I add other wallet stuff as needed but there's easily enough space to keep more. The other one is reserved for liquids. My travel coffee cups fit great as does a water bottle. If I'm not transporting liquids, I might have other stuff stuck in there.
They seriously ought to sell these things right at the place where you are picking up your crutches. I wish they came in cool colors - or paisley! I'd give an arm for them in a Vera Bradley type paisley!!!
