If the shoe fits....
Wear it or throw it??????
That is the question you need to ask yourself today,
as we explore the depths of our closets!
whether you are like me and have only a Dozen or so pairs of shoes,
or like my good friend Shirley who owns DOZENS and DOZENS of pairs of shoes....
This is a great time of year to GO THROUGH them and get rid of some!
First, get a box to put the shoes in that you aren't going to keep.
Take out each pair and decide if you WANT to keep them and WHY!
Next: If you can't decide, put them on and walk around for alittle bit!
Are they comfortable? Do you REALLY like them? Do you REALLY wear them????
If the answer is that you aren't going to keep them, put them into the box!
When you get done going though all the shoes and you have the pile of the ones you are planning on keeping, figure out how you are going to organize them.
You can put them on little shelves, put them on a shoe rack, line them up on the floor, put the OFF season ones away and just leave out the ones you will wear for this season, etc....
Figure out what is going to work best for you!
You might find as you put them away, that there are a few more shoes that you REALLY aren't going to wear again....
You can then decide what you are going to do with all those shoes....
This is a really great organization to donate all those shoes too...
Donate New or "Gently Worn" FootwearSend us your shoes! We want the leftovers in your closet. People across North America are cleaning out their closets and shipping their new or gently worn shoes to one of our warehouse facilities or drop them off at one of our participation locations.
If this doesn't work for you, remember you can donate to GOODWILL, the Salvation Army, a needy friend, a local womans shelter, or any other good cause that you can think of!
Remember, PLEASE throw out the shoes that are OVER worn and WORN out!
NOW, take a look at your shoes, doesn't it make you feel good that they are all organized and that you will be helping others out by getting rid of your shoes you no longer love!!!!!

Funny! Because tomorrow is my day to clean out my front my porch. I am going to sort our shoes, coats, hats and mittens. Figure out what needs to be tossed, donated or replaced.

Thanks for being my inspiration, yet again!
