I'm not a real girl

At least according to all the machist clichés of womanhood: I don't care about shoes. Like, really really don't care. I have a pair of rain boots and two pair of sport shoes (one for inside, one for outside) for the "utilitarian shoes", and 3 pairs of true everyday shoes: leather boots for winter, sneakers for anytime and flats for summer. And that's it! DBF has about the same amount of shoes, which makes it very easy to maintain. Well, in theory, because in reality we usually have more than our pair of the day out in the entryway!

Here's what my shoes look like most of the time:
This is the floor of my jackets' wardrobe, where the shoes not currently in use are stored. Notice my little helper? LOL

And this is the entryway. How welcoming, uh?
 And this is how I would like my shoes to be all the time, or at least how I should put them back every other day:
The entryway with only our pairs of the day, one for DBF and one for me.

The wardrobe's floor. In the boxes are the less used shoes and the more frequently used are stored outside.
Now all I have to do is take pictures of the shoes inside the boxes to find them more quickly and, most of all, maintain this system. My luck, as I said, is that with that few shoes it's very easy to pick up when there's a mess, it takes only 5 minutes!

What's your system to organize your shoes? Do you have any tip for me?

I love that you can live with only a couple of pairs of shoes! Love it!

If I had the amount you do, I'd buy a nice shoe rack (wooden) and display them beautifully.

OMG... I'm so glad I found another woman who isn't crazy about shoes. I have never understood the shoe thing (or the expensive purse thing either). LOL. I have a bunch of shoes at the bottom of my closet, but they are definitely not fancy. My thing about shoes is they have to be comfortable or I won't wear them.
