5 Easy Steps to Decluttering our Shoes ...so we can actually wear them!
We'll spare you the complicated steps because we love simplicity & efficiency. While there is no one size fits all, these are the basic steps we use to declutter & organize our clients shoes and our own.
Tip #1 - Pull them out
Pull all of our shoes out into an open space. No shoes left behind!
Tip #2 - Pair them
Pair all our shoes. Place any missing pairs in a separate pile in case we find them later.
p.s. we told you we'd make it simple... Now on to the next step!
Tip #3 - Categorize them
Let's place paired shoes into categories. Examples of basic categories are shoes we wear regularly, special occasion, cold weather, hot weather.
Tip #4 - Purge
Remove shoes that don't fit us, are ugly on us, we never wear, we don't like, are overworn.
Decide to let go of the missing pair pile. #RIP
Place all removed shoes into a trash bag for discard or donation.
Take discards to our trash area and donates to our car or put aside for donation pick-up.
Let' s not complicate this!
Keep the Good.
Get rid of the Bad, the Ugly.
Trust our initial gut reaction.
Tip #5 - Put them Away
Put our shoes away in a designated area.
