Day 11: Stand-up Shoes

Updated: May 24, 2023

30 Day Spring Cleaning Challenge!

Today is the day to free the shoes and turn boots into stand up citizens!

Gather aaaallll of your shoes together for a little shoe party (or maybe it's a big party!) and put your Honesty Pants on to look through them.

If you have a lot of shoes, put categories or colors together (dress shoes, boots, etc.), then ask your Self: do I love these? Do I wear these? Do I want these?

Try them on with outfits if needed, walk around the house in them, wear them to the store...whatever you need to do to make a heartfelt, well thought-out decision.

Once you go through them, vacuum and/or dust around their homes - or create new homes - and tuck them happily in.

You may be asking: Spring, WHAT are those purple things?!

Those are pool noodles! I get them for $1 at the Dollar Store, cut them into lengths that fit my boots (using a regular pair of scissors), and stick them in my floppy boots to keep them standing up.

There are so many ways to store shoes!

This hanging holder is where I keep my summer shoes, shoe horns and extra pool noodles (I just keep 4 extra - if I get rid of boots that have them inside I'll donate extra noodles).

This little hanging thing I keep against the wall so it's out of the way.

Do you have shoe storage challenges? How do you store your shoes?
