Shoe Issues

May 22, 2012

in the generous life

My husband is a clothes horse.

He has far more clothes and shoes than I do. I think the color and variety makes him happy. 

The only problem is … the shoe organizer. It falls apart, gets knocked around and generally makes the closet difficult to navigate. After I finish writing this post, I’m going to go buy a new one and reorganize the closet. It will make life easier for the both of us.

Is there an area of your house that is difficult? What can you do to make it work better? (without complaining about his stuff)

Like a lot of men, when my husband comes home he likes to empty his pickets – loose change, keys, wallet. He may also have items that he is carrying with him such as papers, pens, business cards, and other small objects that he has carried home from the office or removed from the car. Many of these are things that he is not going to take back in the morning, so if they are left on various horizontal surfaces around the house, they can pile up or get lost. I used to be really bothered by the clutter that would accumulate. But the solution was simple, and really rather obvious (it just took me a while to see it). I bought an entry table with drawers. Now he goes straight to that table and puts most of the small objects into the drawers. It works for both of us by getting the clutter out of view and making it easy for him to find things later.
