Shoe Storage doesn't have to be ugly


Today is all about shoes at Lazy's Talk About Tuesday. We have a few of these baskets from IKEA (I swear they were cheaper last year - there's no way wed pay that much). They sit in an alcove near the door and are handy for depositing shoes. Some of the time they are sitting there hungry for a deposit - I am the worst offender, my favorite spot to leave my shoes is the toe-kick under the kitchen cupboards.

Mr. Organic does not understand my random smattering of shoes in the house because he has his shoes on from dawn to dark (that might be why he has feet that any pedicurist would love, while mine are every pedicurist's nightmare). My feet, on the other hand/foot, cannot bear to be stuffed in shoes all day, my tootsies long to be free. But when I think about it, I tuck them into these-


Bonus tip: I love HairToday for great hair inspiration. I wonder how much longer my youngest will let me play with her hair.

I hate shoes lying around the place. I don't care where you stuff them, just stuff them in the same place every time so I don't have to listen to whining about you not being able to find them. Just keep them out of my sight! :D

And by 'you', I meant my 7 year old.

Hey are you calling my wire shelves ugly??? Just kidding! Love the baskets!

lazy - it's a lot easier to find your shoes if you can see them, so we still have a bit of a hunt while we try to find the 'lucky' door

ew - I think I may just have to do pioneer style here - one pair for everyday and one for Sunday

Like the baskets. I actually make my son and husband throw their shoes in a basket. But I keep mine (most of the time) in my closet.

I love the baskets and have been thinking about something like that for our family. Thanks for posting yours so I can see how it might work.
