shoes a'plenty

Today jparks and I counted the number of pairs of shoes I have. It's bad. Really really bad.

On Sunday I went to the Container Store and bought some more of their shoe boxes. My shoes boxes now stack up to the bottom of my clothing. And my clothing hangs about 3 1/2 feet off the ground.

I've vowed to not buy anymore pairs of shoes until the end of the year, but I see now I'm going to have to break that vow as I need shoes to go with the dress I'm wearing to jparks' company holiday party. I figured I would even out buying this new pair by ebaying a few pairs I currently own. But it seems there are maybe only one or two pairs I can actually imagine parting with. I'm pretty sure I need to get rid of more than that to balance out my next shoe purchase. Unless I can find a cheaper pair than the ones I am currently ohhing and ahhhing over.

In case you're wondering, I'm up to 52 pairs of shoes. Doesn't seem like a lot? Remember, 1 year and 2 months ago I lost all my shoes, except for 2 pairs. So yeah, I am ready to admit that I have a problem.


  1. And Adam thought I had a shoe problem. 50 new pairs of shoes in 60 weeks! Wow, that's really impressive. Of course you could easily knock off at least 30 pairs of those as "replacement" shoes for all the ones you lost.

  2. what's even more impressive is that while 60 weeks ago I lost all my shoes, it was about a month after the hurricane before I started rebuying the collection. So, really it's 50 pairs in maybe 50 or 52 weeks. About a pair a week. That's so sad.

  3. You need someone like me to come and help you look objectively at each shoe. My fees are very reasonable.
