Do you feel stressed out and overwhelmed the minute you walk into your home? Do you feel clutter is busting at the seams from every corner of the room?
If you’re a parent- you especially know what I’m talking about!
Your kids come home from school and one shoe comes off in one direction and the other shoe goes off in the opposite direction. You have a multitude of shoes in your doorway- school shoes, sneakers, soccer cleats- just an overload of shoes. You get the picture!
I love shoes- I REALLY do! But not when I’m tripping over them!
I want to share with you a quick remedy for the shoe clutter dilemma and how to quickly get it organized.
Shoe Clutter Organizing Intention:
Make the intention to have a simple and stylish solution to minimize shoe clutter. Repeat this following intention 5 times:
I am willing to try a new method to resolve shoe clutter.
This easy solution is a favorite of mine! Put a large, stylish decorative basket by the front door entryway. Pick a color that matches the color scheme of your style and décor. Pick a chic decorative canvas print or woven, wicker basket- not a laundry basket! If you can find one with a top lid- even better!
By placing all the shoes in there keeps everything in one place and appears organized. You can have multiple ones if you’d like.
For example, I have one bigger basket for my shoes and another bigger one for my husband’s shoes and two smaller baskets for each of my boys shoes.
What I love about this solution is that it looks nice, clean and helps keep everyone organized.
When you walk thru your front door and you’re tripping over a pile of shoes, it creates chaos. You can’t find the other shoe especially when you’re rushing to get somewhere and everyone gets frustrated! We’ve all been there!
This simple basket method is such a lifesaver!
You can also place one in different locations in your home, such as by the door in the mudroom or garage.
I actually placed one at our backdoor lanai.
I got a decorative metal aluminum bin with a beach scene on it for flip-flops.
We’re a beach loving family, so we accumulate a lot of flip-flops! This keeps them really organized.
By just throwing them in the bin, it’s easy to find and hassle free!
Inspirational Intention to keep shoes organized:
I now have an inviting, organized entrance in my home.
Imagine being able to breathe easier in a stress-free, stylishly organized and tranquil space without shoe clutter!
