Making Room

I have a storage box in my bedroom that I like to think of as the "Staging Area".  It's were new shoes sit until they get worn and have a place in the closet or Shoe Cabinets.  I had quite a number off boxes stacking up and something had to be done.  So I descended into chaos over the weekend.

The Cabinets are pretty much out of room now and required a bit of tough love.  Some shoes went back in their boxes to live in the closet and some are going away entirely (22 pairs!). Here we are in progress...


It took most of the day. And not just because I kept trying on old favorites.

I ended up keeping these BeBe boots.  A wee bit snug but snazzy.



In the end the cabinets are newly rearranged. Cabinet 1 is still black/white/silver/pink/purple/yellow...


Cabinet 2 is obviously red/blue/tan/green/gold...



I love swinging the doors open and picking out a pair to wear.  Plus they do a great job keeping the dust off but still having a larger percentage of my shoes visible.

Yay for organization!

So jealous of 1) all your shoes, and 2) that you have a place to store them. I've been trying to find a place to store all my bags. There's just no extra room in my house.

So, I dare you...pick 10 pairs you cannot live without -- 10 pairs you would search for all your life if they disappeared.

I'm trying to use that tactic to pare down my shoe collection. It's going pretty badly, as I have 10 pairs of red shoes I could never live without.

Your "Staging Area" is actually a really good idea! I never know what to do with all my new shoes, but placing them in a specific spot until they prove their worth, in a sense, is actually really intriguing. Love your shoe collection by the way! And I really admire the fact that you gave away 22 pairs of shoes. I'm way too attached to all of mine to give any of them up.
