Plus having our shoes this close to the door always resulted in a messy pile of shoes just waiting to be tripped on.
Plus I bought the girls new summer flip flops. And flip flops this cute just seemed to need a fun new home! Plus let’s face it. I was just in the mood to organize something.
Wa-la! I bought one more shoe rack and moved all of the shoes from the front of the garage to the side under the racks we use to store garage tools, coats and backpacks. As cute as the mudroom I’ve designed in my head? No. As practical as the mudroom I’ve designed in my head? Definitely.
I decided to bring down all of the girls shoes from their bedroom to free up more space in their closets. Most of mine and Kenny’s shoes are in our closet other than our “slip on quick and go shoes” (Uggs for three months out of the year and flip flops for the other nine)
All boots fit on the top shelf. Want to see my secret for keeping boots standing up straight and tall?
When the kids come home from school, the van door opens, kids step out, and immediately put their shoes away on the rack. They empty backpacks and hang them along with their jackets. The “after school mess” is taken care of before my kids even enter the house!
See what I mean…rollin’ right off the tongue…
