This may not be such a good idea afterall.

Hubby won't let me line the bedroom with bookcases for my shoes, so I'm cataloging them in a fancy schmancy little spreadsheet. It was going well at first, then I realized I hadn't even made it to the closet yet and I'm already surpassing 50 pairs. This may be a bit painful, and even eye opening. I'm breaking my no-counting rule with gusto! Woops.

I'll let you all know how it goes. In the meantime, blogging will be light as I come to terms with the magnitude of my problem. (Not THAT problem - the lack of storage issue.)

UPDATE: (4 hours later) All the initial data collection is done and entered in the as-yet unformatted spreadsheet. Now, I have to decide what to do about pictures and decide how I want it to look/function. Oh, and Justin walked up behind me as I was entering line item #84. It may take him a few beers to come to terms with this.

UPDATE #2: 3 beers and a pound of crab legs later and he still hasn't quite digested how many pairs there are. Though he did say the boots I'm wearing (Amy in brandy from Sole Society) are nice and didn't freak out when I said I NEED the black ones too. So, that tells me he can handle a few more pairs invading our space. 


  1. Your hubby sounds exactly like mine. As long as I wear them he is ok with, if I don't wear them I have to say bye bye. I can tell SD holiday shop is gonna be a problem.

  2. Luckily, or bad depending on your view, I already own most of the shoes in the holiday shop so I've not gone overboard on it. ;)
