In October I showed y’all some shelves my hubbs hung for our shoes.
It’s been so nice having somewhere to stash all our shoes.
But we still have too many SHOES.
Okay, on a totally inappropriate side-note, a friend introduced me to the funniest video on youtube called “Shoes”.
The song (and the best part) starts about half way through. Don’t let kids watch this.
I swear, since last year when Billy showed me this, I cannot think about shoes without thinking, “These shoes rule. These shoes suck! Shoes. Shoes. Shoes.”
Okay, so anyway, the point of the post is that I still didn’t have enough space for all the shoes!
Now in case you didn’t know or forgot, I live in Texas. It’s cold like 2 weeks a year here, so we all wear flip-flops for a good 11.5 months a year. We have A LOT of thongs. 😉
So in addition to our shoe shelf, I bought this shoe organizer from Target for about $7.
On a 2nd side note, notice the shoe organizer is clear? Lots of people use these on their door for crafts and toys, so if you want a CLEAR one, they are at Target.
I just hung it up with 3 nails on the wall next to the shoe shelf.
I was going to hang it lower, but the breaker box is in the way. O-well. It still works.
We use the hanging shoe organizer for the flip-flops and the shelves for all the other shoes.
And in case you are wondering if I “staged” the photo… Nope, I really do organize all our shoes by age starting with hubby. He gets the top shelf and pockets, I get the next shelf (or two) and pockets, and so on down to our daughter.
I know it seems so anal to organize like this, but there really is a method to my madness. The taller the person, the higher the shelf. It’s like Goldilocks and baby bear, each shelf is just right for each person.
And if you are my yorkie, Chase, this is what you see.
When you open the door to go in the house the door covers up the shoe organizer, but honestly it hasn’t mattered at all… except Kinsey did get squished behind the door once… Oops. 😉
The moral? I like my shoes organized.
These shoes rule. These shoes suck!
Shoes. Shoes. Shoes, shoes, shoes!
So, are you freaky anal about the way you organize your shoes? Or is it just me??
