This is a dilemma I have had for a long time. I’ll say that this is probably the most organized part of my closet. My shoes. I have had them in boxes with pictures on the front of the clear shoe boxes now for quite some time, and this system has been working ok. However, I’ve noticed that I’m running out of space. Actually, let me rewind. I already RAN out of space and added MORE shelving to accommodate more shoes and boots, so then now what?
Ok…. did I just answer my own question there???? LOL!!!! Um… I guess the obvious would be to GET RID of some! HA! Well… those are issues to be addressed very soon, in the likes of more than just my shoes. But let’s leave that for another post….
Here’s a snapshot of what I’m talkin about….
Pardon the mess and the slight blur…. but you get my drift? I have TOO much stuff, yes…. and that’s something I’m working on… but still. Doesn’t answer my question. In the box or out of the box?
I recently took a peek into one of my dearest friend’s closets which really inspired me to minimize AND organize. We’ll talk more on that later…. but for now, the shoes. Not only hers, but so many other closets I’ve admired on Pinterest are the shoes out and exposed (one facing one way, the other the other). My issue I have with it is that they will get dusty. Poo! But the flip side is, there is WAY more room on the shelves! Those boxes take up WAY too much room. Let me show you what I’m talking about ….

Aren’t these to die for?
So now you see my thought? These are TOTALLY beautiful (and they are way ABOVE my league!) but why can’t we all have a lovely dressing space, right? I wonder if their closets have a shoe smell as well…. I know that by keeping them sealed in boxes makes for a shoe-less scent! HA!
You’re thoughts? In the box or out of the box?
