It's a Shoe-In

If the closet is overflowing, or you can’t find a match for each shoe, spend a little bit of time getting organized. First, pull footwear out of the closet; then match each shoe with its partner (if one is missing, put it aside until you have a chance to hunt). Throw out torn shoes, and put aside those that no longer fit for donation or hand-me-downs. Check into shoe recycling by visiting www.nikereuseashoe.com or www.soles4souls.org. Finally, for better shoe organization and storage, consider purchasing an over-the-door shoe rack—it’s a small-but-worthwhile investment!
