Sea Of Shoes...in my bathroom!

As you all know, I have promised to do some spring cleaning today. Halfway through cleaning up my closet, I got bored and overwhelmed at the same time so I decided to give it a break and move on over to my shoe cabinet which is in our bathroom...
more boxes have overspilled into the bedroom....

As I was carefully organizing pumps with pumps, boots with boots, I remembered Chyrel's question a few months ago. She asked me how many pairs of shoes I own. I didn't know then so this got me really curious and I started counting....

1,2,3,4,5,35,47,56.....76!


I still own 76 pairs after selling several on ebay the past couple of months. Out of the 76, I probably get to use about 10 pairs on a regular basis. The rest are just worn on whims or never at all. I still have several with tags on them. The problem with this is that a lot deteriorate in storage.

Check out a few of my casualties:

never got to wear this...


I gave 5 pairs away to my daughter's Nanny, set aside a few for selling. I know I have to get rid of at least half the amount but it can sometimes be sooo painful! I always think, what if I'll need it for this occassion or that? With 76 pairs you think I wouldn't need anymore, but I still do. A lot of them are similar and bought on impulse. I have to be a lot more careful with my choices from now on. Note to self: Stop buying what you already have.

There were even a few pairs that I forgot I had. Maybe that's why there are so many that are almost identical to each other....

So tired from all the cleaning. Not entirely done yet but I think I'll continue tomorrow.

Now I'm curious, How many pairs of shoes do you own???

Seriously, shoes are like heroin.

I have about 25 pairs of shoes. I do love them, but I keep myself from acquiring too many by selling a pair or throwing a pair away whenever I bring home new shoes. I try to keep my collection between 20 and 30, as I wouldn't be able to fit them all in our closet if I had more than that! My boyfriend only has six pairs of shoes- ha! Men never want much more than a pair of black shoes, a pair of brown shoes, some sneakers, and sandals. Glad I'm a girl!

@tara: me too, can't imagine living with just 6 pairs! men tend to go ga-ga over nike's though, at least my husband and friends do. sometimes adidas! haha :)
inside my head and wardrobe: that's sooo funny! i do the same thing! sometimes i keep it in the trunk of our car and wait til it's "all clear"! haha :)
loved reading all your replies to this question. such a simple question but i got so many interesting replies! :)
