One upon a time, we moved into our house and there was no clutter.
10 years later, this happened.
My mother-in-love builds cabinets and she custom built this awesome shoe cubby wall in our closet.
Unfortunately, I don’t think it has been cleaned out once in the 10 years we’ve lived here.
One would think a shoe cubby wall should hold SHOES.
Alas, I pulled out all the shoes…
That’s a lot of non-shoe crap in my shoe cubbies.
Brian rejoiced and the very angels of heaven may have even chuckled a bit this afternoon:
I cannot even believe this craziness.
What has gotten into me???
Can we talk about closet dust build up???
D I S G U S T I N G.
Disgusting. Gross. Unreal. Cough. Sneeze. Yuck.
Brock decided I needed help putting my shoes up.
I should have gotten him a dust mask or something.
My shoe collection is still too big, but has significantly dwindled over the past 2 years. I’ve got a long way to go, but this is certainly progress!
At one point in my life, I filled every single cubby, double stacked and still didn’t have enough room. That was dumb. No one needs that many shoes. I’m happy with the entire empty row on the end now and several other empty cubes along the bottom.
I’m thinking of some creative ways to use these extra spaces WITHOUT going shoe shopping for like the next 10 years.
This is a #trashouttuesday for the history books, indeed!
- How do you organize your shoes?
- Have you emptied out ALL of your shoes from your closet lately? Try it. You’ll be amazed.
- Starting fresh in a closet changes your perspective and it’s always nice to put the dust bunnies to death.
