Women usually have a lot of shoes. But, we don’t always keep them in the best of shape. So let’s take some time today to look though our Spring and Summer shoes.
Clean and Organize Spring & Summer Shoes
If your summer shoes have been packed away for the winter, pull them out and ask yourself the following questions:
- Do your shoes still fit? I realize your foot probably hasn’t grown (unless it flattened out during pregnancy!). But seriously, do they fit? You know us women have a really bad habit of trying to squeeze our feet into cute shoes. The problem is that small shoes wreak havoc on our feet! Plus they make us miserably uncomfortable. If they don’t fit, be brave and toss ’em!
- Are they in good condition? Old, worn shoes don’t give our feet the support they need so make sure they can still do the job.
- Are they still in style? If you don’t care about style, then feel free to ignore this step. But, if you do care about style, make sure you’ll wear them!
- Are they dirty? If your shoes need a good cleaning, get to it! Sometimes you just need a good all-purpose cleaner and rag to wipe down the outside. Other times you need a specialty product. Either way, clean them up for Spring!
- Do they stink? You may not know for sure until the aroma is heightened by your warm foot wearing the shoes. But, if they sink, don’t keep them. Please!
- Do you have too many shoes? Millions of women everywhere are screaming “NOOOOOO!!!!” Keep in mind I’m not the judge, you are. So if you think you have too many shoes (or you can’t even store them) then maybe it’s time to find a new home for a few shoes.
- Do you need new shoes? Contrary to the last question, we often need new shoes. Has your lifestyle changed? Would a certain type of shoe be a completer piece for your summer wardrobe? If so, make a list of shoes to look for the next time you’re out shopping.
Once the shoes you’re keeping are ready to find a home in your closet, pack up those winter shoes and put your Spring/Summer shoes front and center!
And there you have it! Our task for the day. Can you handle it? Let me know in the comments or on Facebook!
