Mini Mission – Tuesday 15 Aug2017

Declutter a pair of shoes that you rarely wear, are uncomfortable or are very shabby.

I am the queen of getting a good price for whatever I buy. However, when it comes to shoes, the main aim is comfort and I am willing to pay for that. Of course style is a factor, but being able to walk for miles in comfort is my main aim. So I usually end up with shoes that I wear to death rather than just tire of and replace, thus eliminating the chance of shoe clutter building up in my home.

  1. I am starting to do this…so much better than wearing shoes that hurt (even if they are adorable).

  2. Several years ago I started using old shoes that weren’t good enough to donate as yard shoes while only buying comfortable, albeit expensive for daily wear. All the yard shoes have worn out and I have bought an actual pair of yard shoes

    It took several years to get rid of my shoe clutter , but i have fewer shoes, but they are comfortable and get used frequently.

  3. I only have two pair of shoes. One pair I only wear at home and the other is for outside the home. I need a new pair but they are so expensive due to foot issues I have put it off for a while.

  4. I need to get my husband to take me out to a fancy dinner. The last couple times he did my shoes fell apart so now I have less shoes. I still have shoes from when I was in school and got to go to semi-formals. Down to just a couple pairs.

    My day to day shoes I need fewer but I can’t figure out which ones are making my feet hurt or what shoes to buy to make my feet not hurt. I’m going to go work with a restorative exercise specialist in a few months and hopefully she can help me figure it out–then any not good can go away. None of them are obvious, it’s more just soreness over time in various places. I’d like to just go barefoot but it’s banned everywhere. At home I wear no shoes and it’s so much more comfortable.
