Too many shoes.

Too many shoes.

Too many shoes?  No, that isn’t a thing, BUT trying to store shoes when there are a lot of them can be really difficult.  Never fear my friends! I have the solution!  I guess I mean that I have a solution for MY shoe problem, and HOPEFULLY it can also be the solution to YOUR shoe problem. I have tried every rack out there, I swear to you, and none of the racks that are made for shoes have worked for me.  Either the shelves are too short for boots or it is a wire rack and the heels just slip right through, or it’s just plain bulky and ugly.  I was also having the problem of shoes getting ruined because they were basically throw into a pile.  Some of my favorite shoes have been ruined because they became misshapen by another pair sitting right on top of them. I looked everywhere and it seemed that every option for shoe boxes was REALLY expensive.  Seriously, I’m not kidding, SO EXPENSIVE.  I love the idea of having little plastic see through tubs for every single pair of shoe I own, but I also like the idea of breakfast, lunch, and dinner, so food came first.  Then I came across these lovely boxes at IKEA.  Oh, IKEA!  You crazy stupid place.  Fairly easy to put together, very cheap (around $3.00 to $5.00 for two!), and I think if you write on them nicely, they can be left out of the closet.  I stack mine against one wall, out of the way and easy to get to.  I put a link to them...
