So the other day I was cleaning the house before the cleaning crew came and I realized that I have a lot of shoes. Like A LOT. I know, it was a total shock to me too.
This is what my guest bedroom wall looks like:
The rest of this room has been in such disarray that I never realized that something useful could be in that spot, like a bookshelf or a mini fridge so I don't have to walk all the way downstairs for a cold beverage. But now that room is clean and actually room-like and I'm fairly certain I want my mini fridge there. Oh, or a reach in freezer for ice cream!
The first step to having ice cream is to get rid of some shoes. And, believe it or not, that picture was taken after a fairly large shoe purge, so obviously one purge wasn't enough. My next step is to stop buying shoes. Heh, seeing both of those steps written makes me realize just how much I have to change for that freezer. Man, ice cream in bed better be worth it.
As far as getting rid of what I have, I think I need to come up with a system to track the shoes I'm wearing. I mean, that's a lot of shoes and I know I don't wear all of them, but some of the lesser worn ones are cute. And how can you get rid of cute shoes? You can't. Unless you can have ice cream in bed after getting rid of the cute shoes.
I want to whittle that tower down enough that my shoes fit in a closet. Actually let me qualify that a bit: I want them to fit in a closet with room for other things like clothes and vacuums. Can you imagine?!? It's blowing my mind. Are you doubting I can do that? I bet you aren't the only one. But I'll prove you guys wrong, you have no idea how much I want ice cream in bed.
