Shoentropy: being the eleventy-first law of thermodynamics, that shoes will always go from a state or order towards a state of chaos.

Do you have this at your house? 

Shoes confound me.  Shoes for six people confound me.  You’d think we were all centipedes, for all the shoe chaos we have.  Boots for each of us.  Slippers.  Inside shoes.  Outside shoes.  Church shoes.  Play shoes.  DInosaur shoes.  It is an embarrassment of riches.

I had a metal shoe rack that I thought was going to be the answer– it held 18 shoes.  Until it fell apart, all the soldering giving way under the constant trauma of shoes on/shoes off that happens here all day long. 

I just moved to a 26-pocket vinyl shoe organizer… we’ll see how long it lasts.

If you have a better shoe-lution, let me know.

    I can more easily leave a comment (at least from the last few times I tried to… I still faithfully read, Annie- but for awhile it kept asking me to give my old homeschool blogger account password, and I couldn’t for the life of me recall a password from that many years ago, so.. I just never got around to figuring a way around it.)

    Happy to see that it has changed, and now I can comment more freely! 🙂

    And YES, we SO have this problem at our house. It’s a lost cause, I assure you.


  2. Hooray!! I can post comments. We have two big wicker baskets with lids by our coat hooks for all shoes to be dumped into. It is still chaotic inside the baskets, but visually all looks serene outside (at least until you look at the mass of coats on and, more likely, off the hooks).


I love reading your comments! Thanks for visiting.
