I have never considered myself to be someone who owns a lot of shoes. I have a high arch which makes it difficult to just walk into a department store and buy something cute, so when I purchase a pair of shoes they tend to be comfortable, fairly well made, and black.

The other day I decided to go through my dressers and my clothes closet and see if I had anything to donate. My dressers are pretty well organized, and my clothes hanging in my closet are too, so it is a quick process.

This is a picture of my closet prior to reorganization. Needless to say, little organization was necessary.

And here is a picture of the space I have to work with for my shoes. Plenty of space … or so I thought!

This is what I hauled out of there:

While the lighting is not the best in this picture, I think you get the idea.

I threw out two pair of shoes and two pair of sneakers. One of the shoes I tossed the dog had chewed when he was little. I have no idea why I kept them!

The two sneakers were worn down. I like to keep a one pair of old, worn sneakers on hand for painting or garden duty, but since my current pair are being replaced this week, I did not need three old “garden sneakers” laying about.

I also put a pair of shoes into the donation pile. While I like the ones I donated (only worn 4-5 times), the left shoe would always cause my left foot to hurt when I am driving (really strange if you think about it). There was no point to keeping them.

When all was put back in place, I discovered I still have a few too many pairs of boots and shoes, but nothing I really want to part with. I guess I will just forgo any shoe buying for a while… or possibly take over one of hubby’s four clothes closets?

Confess: how many pairs of shoes do you own!?

  1. Ohh… too many! haha.. I have sandles & flip flops in a storage container under my bed.. I’ve got 2 over the door shoe hangers (one cloth, one wire) that I pile my casual shoes in/on when I get tired of tripping on them in front of my dresser, I have prob 10 pair of nice dress shoes in my closet & prob 5 or 6 pairs of boots in the closet & I probably have another 10 pair of boots, rainboots, etc in the basement on a rack down there..
    Im actually afraid to count… dang it.. I probably have between 60 & 80 pair of shoes all said… Most are brown, black & tan.. I’ll count them one of these days… but not today. 😉

  2. I really hate to say this but I have over 100 pairs of shoes. I justify this by saying I work for the Fire Department Administration Office and have to dress business appropriate, Baloney!!! I have every color, red, navy, black, brown, purple, blue, leopard, (everyone needs a pair of leopard shoes), snake, sneakers, sandals, flats, high heels, etc. I decided to clean them out and donate but only came up with three pairs because in my head I kept saying those are so cute or love the color, got to keep them. My shoes are totally organized in plastic shoe containers and take up four shelves in one of my closets. My clothes are organized by color and season. Winter and Fall is in the spare bedroom. I guess I have a serious problem but I could be gambling or drinking the money instead. By the way I retired from the Fire Department so it is really is hard to justify the new shoes now, but I will figure it out.
