Whenever I go to market one thing attracts me a lot. I can’t stop myself from purchasing a new pair of footwear and my habit resulted in a stack of shoe boxes in my storeroom. Actually, being a shoe lover I used to keep them carefully in the shoebox in which they were wrapped by the shopkeeper. As I love my shoes, I wanted to keep them safely; therefore, I stacked them in an organized way in my storeroom. But it was a blunder. Slowly I realized that I am using the same pair frequently which were kept upside and it was very difficult for me to match them with my dress. Not only this, boxes were occupying my place unnecessarily. Fortunately, I saw a metal shoe rack online which could be hanged on the wall beside the entrance door.

What I did before making an order for Metal Shoe Rack Online?
I decided to have one rack for my shoes too. But, I didn’t order the shoe rack directly. I first analyzed my own need. I decided to group my all footwear at one place before placing an online order for that shoe rack made up of metal. When I was checking sandals, shoes, and boots etc., I found several pairs which I don’t wear and I no longer need them too. Few pairs were not used as they needed to be repaired. I discarded a few which were beyond repair or not fitting me comfortably. Believe me, discarding them was very difficult for me but sometimes you ought to do.
My experience taught me that if you have not used any of your footwear from last one year, do not put it back, give it to someone who is in need. If you will keep them again, you will just end up storing it for another year, two years, and ultimately one day you will throw them out. It’s better, give them to the needful person.
Now, I was ready with my actual storage requirement and I made an order of a suitable shoe rack. Today, I have my shoe rack to keep my shoes which I sport often and I can match them easily with my dresses to flaunt among friends. But, only having one shoe rack will not suffice and the problem will persist. In fact, any shoe rack cannot come with unlimited space. One needs to follow some rules for keeping things in order.
I did the same. I decided to follow these two rules.
OIOU Rule-(One In One Out)
Even God follows the same rule. He sends new people on the earth and calls back few one to keep this world in order. In the same way we who need to take a strong decision to shed off one old pair whenever we purchase a new one. Otherwise, it would become a mess again. Think about people who are struggling hard to buy a piece of bread and can’t even imagine for buying shoes or slippers. Your old pair of footwear will be an unexpected gift for them.

Old is Gold
I didn’t leave my old way of keeping my shoes in the boxes but I changed my way. This time I kept only those footwear in the boxes which I use occasionally but did not repeat my previous mistake. I kept them with a proper label.
Stashing Informal Footwear
Working Mom needs more organizers to keep their home settled. If you have a small house than you definitely need cabinets and covered racks to hide your secrets. One Rack will not fulfill all your needs. Therefore, I made a mix of all options to give my home an organized look. I use a metal rack for all formal sandals, shoes, and slippers which my family members use frequently, I keep original shoe boxes for items needed occasionally and at the last, I have purchased one big basket for keeping informal and daily wear sandals, kid’s flip-flop, and husband’s slippers to pile up them at one place. They can be handled in a bit rough way which makes us carefree for them.
