mood - frustrated: awmp

Grumble

I spent two hours cleaning my bedroom today, which was long overdue. I am in dire need of a new shoe solution. Traditionally, I've stored shoes in their original boxes with pictures on the outside of the box to identify its contents on a shelf in my closet. I like that for efficiency, but in practical terms, I get lazy and don't put shoes back in the box or bother taking them back upstairs again. Which means, the shoes that get worn all the time end up getting left next to the couch or under a table downstairs and 80% of my shoes get forgotten (when I know I would wear them if I only saw them more often).

I've cleared out a lot of shoes I know I'm never going to wear, but I still have a ton left, and I just don't know how to handle it. My ideal solution would be downstairs, but I don't have anyplace practical for it except the guest bedroom. And that would be pointless when we have guests. One possibility is on the back of the closet door, but I'd never see them because that door doesn't get shut. I'm considering shelving units in my bedroom, but I was hoping to use that space for books.

Stupid first world problems.
