What is your minimum number of shoes to own?
Shoes. I'm struggling with finding storage for my shoes.
I have very little storage space for shoes, just a small part of the floor of the bedroom closet. I do not want to get a free-standing shoe cabinet or anything like that, as my bedroom is small.
The shoes will need to fit on the floor of the closet, which is also small--there's space for 3 pairs of shoes, although I'm trying to find some sort of shelf that will fit, so I can store a few more pairs. And I have an under-the-bed bin that can hold about 4-5 pairs. (The closet door has hooks for robes and scarves and bags. The over the door multi-pocket shoe holders won't fit. Or, if I got one, I'd have to find storage space for everything that's currently hanging on the closet door. )
But I have about 20 pairs of shoes, not counting two pairs of snow boots that live by the front door. I'm struggling to let go of some of the shoes.
It's things like, I have one good dressy outfit. I have one pair of shoes that goes with this outfit and nothing else. Logically, these shoes should go. But then, the twice a year I get dressed up, I will feel weird, because I'll be wearing black leather work shoes with a lacy brown dress.
So what can I do to determine which shoes can stay and which should go? What's a minimum shoe wardrobe for you?
