When I was a kid we had a no shoes in the house rule. Often when you have this rule the shoes all end up at the garage or front door. My mom constantly stayed on us about not leaving the shoes where someone would trip over them. Well, it finally happened. My mom had to go to urgent care because she tripped over someone’s shoes. Naturally the first question we ask her when she returned home was, “whose shoes was it?” I was more worried about it being my shoes than if she was ok. Thankfully, it was her own pair.
Are you fighting this same battle at your house? The constant game of stepping over shoes or looking for the lost mate. If this sounds like you I have a couple of solutions that may help. Here are some of my favorite shoe organizers and tips.
For the No Shoes in House people:
Keep a bin or a stand by the door to store the shoes you wear majority of the item. We all get two pairs to keep by the door. Decide what that number is for your family. We wear the same couple of pairs 80% of the time. If I wear something different I take them straight to my room. Don’t give yourself too much room to store shoes or you will just have an eyesore at your front door and it will feel cluttered.
