Declutter Challenge Day 23: Walk a mile in my shoes? Wish I could!

Declutter Challenge Day 23: Walk a mile in my shoes?  Wish I could!

Today we have the story of a gorgeous pair of heels, accidentally bought a half size too small.  It wasn’t until they’d met their match on sole-scuffing asphalt that the horror of those pain-inducing pumps became known.

It was too late to take them back. Impossible to wear them without acquiring a limp. Talk about a shopping mistake — and a decluttering nightmare.  (Did I mention they are gorgeous? And barely used?  And cost a decent chunk of change?  Even as I write this, I want to try to make them work.)

If you have a similar pair of shoes — too small, too high, too uncomfortable — today’s the day we take a step (ahem) in the right direction.  Donate them to Goodwill.  List them on eBay.  Give them to a friend with smaller feet or a higher tolerance for pain.  Just stop letting them clutter up the closet, instilling guilt every day they go unworn.

While you’re in the shoe closet, take a hard look at what else is in there.  Is anything looking rough?  Do your sneakers smell beyond repair?  Are you hoarding a collection of Old Navy flip flops in every color ever made?  Look for areas to pare down your pairs.

Here’s to happy feet.
