Sort out the hall closet of all the clutter. Now it’s summer and we no longer require our snow boots. An easy solution is get a large bin or 2. Place all the boots that have mates, still fit or will fit next winter into the bin. Find a place to store them in the basement or on a shelf or in the loft of the garage.
Only the shoes that are being worn this season should be in the front hall.
High heels, dress shoes, dress boots and sandals that are not worn daily should be kept in the bedroom closets. So, if they belong to the kids they should go into their closets. For more help with closets download my Free Closet Report on the right column of this page.
Rule of thumb for shoes is that each person “living” in the home should have a maximum of 2 pairs of shoes, boots or sandals in the front hall closet. Keep it simple and make those your most often worn pairs. Treat shoes/boots like clothes.
We wear 20% of our clothes 80% of the time. And I bet you have favourite shoes too.
