This week, let’s zero in on the things that clutters so many entryway floors: shoes!
There are lots of ways to tame shoes, of course, you just have to find what’s right for you.
My favorite ways to contain shoes? Well, it’s a little different for each age group.
For kids, I LOVE having a basket for them to keep them in. There’s no perfection, there’s no trying to keep them lined up. Just a basket or bin to throw them in when they get out of control.
A word of caution: Don’t overfill! If there are too many shoes for the chosen storage space, relocate some to another area of the house–a child’s closet generally has enough space for a few extra shoes.
For adults, a bookshelf can work just right. Adults can usually be a little more exact in their shoe clean-up.
Why am I not recommending a shoe rack? Because I don’t use one! Often, shoe racks are flimsy and not practical for families with children. Even in adult-only households, they’re almost always over-full!
That’s it for the week. Play with shoe solutions, see what you can come up with. Take pictures! Then send them my way on Facebook to show your work!
