I’m behind also, but trying to catch up. I am very pleased with what I’ve accomplished so far and my husband is quite impressed! 🙂 I got rid of a lot of things that I’ve held on to for a long time, but I’m finding freedom in having only usable things left in my closet! It definitely saves time getting dressed when I everything is so organized and fits!
I too am behind, but hope to catch up this weekend
Hey ladies, how many of us are doing this? i am running way behind om my tasks, I hope I am not alone?
Sooo it’s winter, and I’m in Canada. I have a couple pairs of boots at home, but the majority of my shoes live under my desk at work right now…
My group recommends the following:
Our everyday shoes and boots would be placed on a rubber mat just after you enter your home. If it was a bad weather day the debris from walking would go on the mat and not through your home.
We recommend everyone own 1 pair of dress shoes, 1 pair of casual shoes, 1 pair of everyday shoes and 1 pair of winter boots.
To keep your shoes in good condition we recommend you keep them in their shoes boxes. Attach a photo on each shoe box so it is faster for you to get to the appropriate shoes.
This is easy. I am unlike most women I know – I am EXTREMELY picky about what shoes I will allow into my closet in the first place… I don’t generally wear heals (and the few I do aren’t wouldn’t be considered all that high…) and it’s hard for me to find shoes that fit my feet properly so I think through them carefully before I bring anything in ;).
Good strategy Catherine! I’m fairly picky – and because I have tiny feet I can rarely find anything I like in my size. So I only got rid of one pair of shoes in my last closet declutter – and that was because they were looking tired.
I tried to move fast through this but it took me over an hour to sort through the shoes. The most difficult things was actually letting go of a pile of shoes that really do not fit into my life any more. BUT I am down to 14 pairs overall now. Including my flip flops and running shoes. They all fit neatly into my wardrobe. There are another 3 pairs I need to let go but first need to buy replacement pairs. Phew….so glad this is done now.
Michelle, I really like the ‘face one forward one backward’ tip!
Also glad to read you are not a fan of the clear shoe boxes idea. I never liked them either and was wondering if I am missing something there.
Letting go of perfectly good things that just aren’t you anymore is hard. But how wonderful that you did Vesna – having what you love and using what you have is a great way to make peace with life’s ‘stuff’. PS Clear shoeboxes are good in theory but way too much work! 🙂
Well well well… Shoes! Pat, I am with you, this is going to be a difficult one! But let’s get to it then!
“Oy vey” – what a challenge! This is going to take me some time, but is my favourite charity going to be happy. Now where are those big trash bags….
Oy vey indeed Pat! But it’s worth it – there’s nothing quite like the feeling of a perfectly organized shoe closet. 🙂
