SHOES



My shoes are a mess.  Who care’s…well, I do.  I come home through the garage, take off my shoes near the wall, and put on my fuzzy slippers.  The shoes pile up.  And up.

Margot was talking yesterday about how messy her bedroom had gotten.  I reminded her that she had always been messy.  Then I got to thinking about my own messes.  The shoe piles were the worst. 

So I went downstairs and sorted them.  Sandals in one cubbyhole, ballet flats in another, and little old lady shoes in the top space.  Then this morning, my thinking activated.  It’s how to ruin a good shoe.  Just jamming these really good shoes on top of one another isn’t a solution.  Part of this is my fault for liking well-made shoes that fit my feet.

We have a few errands to run.  When we get home, I will reevaluate my “jamming the shoes” theory.  Everything in life needs to be looked at more than once.

  1. Iam pretty good about listening to my son, yet I still want to smack him. You need to buy some over=the=door shoe hangers maybe. We do that storage with our outdoor hiking shoes and boots, etc. So we do not care if they are piled on top of one another.

  3. We spent the day helping our daughter clean our her garage. Shoes and boots galore! Tired doesn’t begin to explain how I feel but a good book is calling me. Have a great evening, Mage.

  4. Maybe a few more cubbies?? You make me realize I need to sort my own shoe stack and I don't have nearly the amount you have.

  5. This is not really a problem when you effectively only have one pair. (My feet have needs ... and orthotics. lol )

  6. I always feel good when I manage to organize something. I like the cubbie idea.
