Get rid of some, I hear you say, and yes, I probably should, but some I just can't seem to part with, as they've served me so well and I always think I might still wear them on the odd occasion. Anyway, when I saw these I thought they might be a solution to my current problem, which is shoes piled on top of one another in the bottom of the wardrobe, flattening each other.
I promised myself that I would try these and if they didn't work as a solution, I would put them back outside for someone else to take or take them to the charity shop.
They were in good clean condition, so I didn't have to do anything with them and I took them straight up to my bedroom, where I proceeded to sort through and rearrange all the shoes in my wardrobe. I tried a few different ways of using them, but ended up with this solution as it worked the best for me and to be honest looked the neatest solution.
I made sure that the shoes I wear the very least are the ones tucked away on the rack at the bottom of the wardrobe as these are hardest to access and the shoes I wear most are to the front and on the top rack. I'm pretty pleased with the result as it means my shoes will now be better cared for and not just thrown in the bottom of the wardrobe when I take them off and yes, there are still a couple of pairs stacked on top of one another, but these are just my trainers and they get bashed about enough at the gym anyway. Another frugal solution to make everyday life easier and better organised. Mrs Receptacle strikes again!
