Organizing Shoes

As happens often with a lot of household items, organizing shoes can be very difficult.  Especially when you don’t have any space that is dedicated exclusively to them.

While we often have a wide variety of shoes to match with different types of clothing, rarely do we decide to give them the appropriate space to organize them.

A lot of people end up leaving them strewn around the whole house, or they leave them jumbled up in boxes, without realizing that this speeds up their wear-down.
