{Lets Talk Shoe Boxes}

Monday, November 8, 2010
I have a confession and it has to do with shoe boxes. I have kept EVERY single shoe box that my shoes have come in ... and ... every time I need a pair of shoes, I have to take it out of the original box. When I am done ... I have to place my shoes back in the box and back into the closet until I need then again ... is this OCD or do you all do this too?

Anyways, I took a HUGE leap today ... HUGE! I took 4 large black trash bags ... and TOSSED 98% of my shoe boxes. It was a moment of relief, and also a moment of terror. I just kept thinking up excuses as to why I would need to keep of of them. It was sick. I made Ryan take them all out to the trash, I couldn't do it myself. SO, now I had all of these shoes. My designer dream would be to have a closet like this ... BUT, back to reality I go. I picked up storage containers from Walmart, and this is what the new top of my closet looks like. I actually like it better :) No more stuffing shoes, etc. Now that's all that is left to do is to take pictures so that I know what shoes are which. Should be done by the end of the week ... "cross your fingers."

How do you all store your shoes?

I don't store all of my shoes like that.....but I'm going to.....VERY soon. I always wondered if the tall heels really fit in those storage containers?

I'm guilty, I still have 75% of my shoes in shoe boxes. I know my shoe boxes so well I dont even need to open it up to know what shoe it is. Bad I know, so you are very brave!
