When Shoes Attack

Friday, April 22, 2011

So, I was off from work on Mon & Tue this week for Pesach, which is always fun (especially seeing as how I'm what I refer to as a "bad jew"). During my time off, I decided to tackle my closet - in addition to my hair, as previously shared.

In doing so, I had to figure out what to do with all of my shoes. This was kind of a wake-up call as I never even knew how many I had! So, here is the pile of most of them:


After sorting through everything and getting rid of about 8 pairs that were definitely dead, here is what I ended up with:

(not pictured: sneakers, flip-flops, and some additional pairs still in the storage bin under my bed)

They are all currently shoved back into my closet, albeit a bit more organized than before. However, I still need to come up with a solution for keeping them that way - and from preventing the dog from attacking/eating them!

We all know that any shoe collection is a living/breathing organism that continues to grow. So, any suggestions?

    Oh...my...gosh... I LOVE your shoes!! It makes me want to go out and buy more shoes right now. I have no idea how to help you organize them - sorry. I keep most of mine in their boxes on shelves in my closet - the rest are in under bed storage boxes under my bed. Good luck!

    I once upon a time had almost 200 pairs of shoes. All I can say is some kind of organizer and put them away after wearing them. Which I didn't. Which equates to shoe hell. ;)

    Love your shoe collection!

    There are hangable racks that go on the back of a door that are kinda cool and save on space.... ; )

    And organized them by dress shoes, flip flops and sneakers (I don't have as many shoes as you!!)

    Good luck and take a picture of your finished closet! emoticon
