I hate housework and I hate clutter. Despite this, my home is full of clutter. We simply have too much stuff.
Problem areas are abundant, in fact, the whole house is probably a problem area. This is the start of my problem. Getting rid of the junk overwhelms me; there is just too much of it.
To get over this, I have been trying to attack one area of the house at a time. In the last month, I’ve cleared the bottom of the stairs, tidied and organized under the stairs and rearranged the dining/laundry area of the kitchen.
Even these three areas have made the house seem so much bigger.
For months, years even, I’ve been annoyed at the gigantic shoe box we had stored under the stairs. Looking for a pair of shoes frustrated me. It made me red in the face and very angry.
During a particularly angry moment I threw the shoe box into the shed along with all the shoes… it wasn’t a final nor practical solution to my problem but it encouraged me to head to my favourite one stop shop, Amazon, to look for solutions.
I found the most amazing shoe storage solution that is versatile and adapts to fit the individual needs of different areas (and it’s big enough for Jim’s size 17 shoes).
In one afternoon, under the stairs went from a hellish jumble of shoes, clutter and the tumble dryer to a more organized and tidy storage area.
I’m pleased with the result and now have plenty of shoe storage that is aesthetically pleasing. It would be even better if I could get rid of the rest of the clutter under there.
Do you have a problem with shoes in your home? What are your shoe storage solutions?
