Ok I’ve been so busy and haven’t posted since before Christmas but I have so much to share with you all and this is probably one of my most exciting finds in awhile!
So, my front door has always been an eyesore! I swear I’m not saying this to just make this post that much better, it serious has always been a CF, if you frequent my house than you know!
We live in a small townhouse so we don’t have any fancy mud room or even enough space to put a mud bench. I’ve seen some people on social media with a mud room the size of my entire down stairs!!! haha one day that will be our reality!
Anyways, our shoes sometimes get out of control and I have finally found the answer!!! After searching far and wide and legit for the longest time for the right storage container or boxes I have found the perfect shoe containers to organize our mess.
I didn’t want to do a storage ottoman because with two boys I promise you we will lose shoes for years with them being tossed in and burried under the rest. I’ve always wanted storage boxes the really nice ones you see at the Container Store but your kidding if you think I’m going to spend $15 to store one pair of shoes! Well, I ran accross these jems and I’m legit in love, they fit more then one pair of shoes!
They fit 3 pairs of camerons if they are stacked right, I can fit 4 pair of my shoes, and we can fit a million pairs of Stryder’s (joking) but reality there can be at least half a dozen.
This is what our shoes looked liked before!
Even worse at times, sadly.
AND THIS IS AFTER!
I don’t know if it is just me but that is way more pleasing, it speaks to my soul!
What I like the most about these shoe box organizers is; you can either open the front flap to get to your shoes, or you can open the entire top flap and get into the back of the shoe box which makes replacing shoes really convenient. Which lets be honest with Cameron’s shoes being so big and Stryder being 7 it will be so much easier for both of them to get their shoes out and (remember) to put them back each time.
(sidenote: the glass decorations are just for looks, they will not stay there lol)
This is will probably be our set up with Cameron and Stryders boxes being on top so they can easily access their shoes. The other two will be mine and a box for our sandals and slides, that we use when we need to throw shoes on quick.
