part of me can’t believe that I am going to let you see a portion of my closet. the other part of me wonders why, everyday, that I haven’t tackled it sooner.
even husband said tonight ‘seems like you have been working on this for days.’ actually only hours, between carpooling everyone, the grocery store and bedtime.
But I have been talking about it for weeks, its just the follow through where I fail.
Let’s be honest (almost typed that out like Pitch Perfect, but caught myself), I am not an organized person. I try, Lord knows I try. But the shoes always have the upper hand and I am drowning once again, gasping for air….. And when they are in their pile, I only wear the top few.
In our last house, I had grabbed plastic shoe boxes to store my goods in because I didn’t have the room or shelving for them. And guess what survived the fire? Yup, some of the shoes in the boxes. So you bet I went and stocked up on some more. Hey, it was 99 cents y’all.
Dang it, I feel another song coming on. Guess it was lip synching Sunday around here.
We have a larger, odd shaped closet:
The space between the top shelf and the ceiling on my side begins at 4 foot and slants down to about 1 foot. Good Gravy….so much space but not very deep.
So my shoes have sat like this:
And this…(don’t look at my clothes, I repeat, don’t look. I organize and sort, only to shove in when I am doing laundry at midnight)
So I dumped them all out, sorted and got to work.
Crazy easy, just snapped a pic with the Fuji Instax (camera HERE, film HERE), wrote down a small description and attached it to the box (found HERE).
Why use a polaroid? Sure the film is higher, but I didn’t waist my ink printing it out on my own, or have to pay and wait on the film department at the corner store. This literally took less than a minute per pair.
I knew I already had a mad obsession with sneakers, but flats? Who knew…
The heels? Oh no, those weren’t shoved into boxes…some of those have glitter on them for crying out loud….
I will post next week how I tackled those.
