Sort Out Sunday: Wear Your Shoes!!

I LOVE SHOES!!! I love shoes! All kinds! So I had to make an effort to wear them. That sounds funny when I say that, right? I have to make an effort to WEAR the shoes?

I was buying more shoes than I was actually wearing them. I had so many pairs of shoes that i was running out of room! THATS when I knew that I had a problem. So I STOPPED buying shoes and may an effort to rotate and wear them. I made sure that all my shoes were VISIBLE. Any shoes I couldnt see I knew would get left out. And then I made the commitment to wear the different pairs of shoes.

Two things happened:

1- I REDISCOVERED all these cool shoes I had! haha

2- There were some shoes I bought that I could barely or not wear with anything I had in my wardrobe. So I gave those away, which cleared up space in my closet!

Try it starting today!!!

Most Worn Shoes To The Front


Separate shoes into 2 categories: Shoes worn on a regular basis and shoes worn occasionally. Shoes worn on a regular basis are those you wear all the time. Shoes for work, shoes for play, gym shoes, the shoes you would would grab to go to the store in. Occasionally worn shoes would be those extreme high heels you put on when you go to the club a couple of Saturday nights a month. It could also include seasonal shoes. You have those boots you like that you don’t want to put away because every once in a while the weather calls for them.

I suggest keep all regularly worn shoes very visible and accessible to you. If you have shoe racks, have them up front. If you have shelving, then put occasionally worn shoes up high or in the back.

I read somewhere that the average adult female has 40 pairs of shoes and the average adult male has 10 pairs. In my work, I don’t think that’s so accurrate. I’ve seen men with 10 pairs of sneakers alone! And we won’t get into MY shoe fetish or amount of shoes I have in MY closet….
