I did my bathroom. Now it was onto my closet floor.

A few months ago, I had my closet revamped by my friend Bryn Taylor. My clothes have happily been organized ever since. We never touched my shoe structure though and it always gave me a problem whenever I wanted to wear something other than my flip flops. You see, I used to stack up shoe boxes – one on top of the other – and if I touched one on the bottom, the entire structure would collapse. It was so ANNOYING.

I finally ordered a shoe rack from The Container Store and emptied all those boxes. Let the kids play a bit before we stored the whole thing in the attic. 🙂


Since the rack only holds 30 pairs of shoes, I had to get rid of a BUNCH. But, it was good to sort through them all and really think about what I wanted to wear again.


Now, my closet looks like this! I am so happy that my shoes are stored in a neat and orderly fashion. PLUS I can actually SEE what I own. I had every intention of taking a photo of each pair of shoes I had and taping it to the outside of my shoe boxes… but that never happened. This was much easier.


My boots are another issue. I own about 6 more pairs without these stands – but they are UGG like and really don’t need to be protected. I did this because my boots would flop over and then things would begin to pile on top of them. I don’t want to scuff my latest pair. They were a splurge and I need to take care of them.

Do you have any closet tips you’d like to share?
