40 Chores in 40 Days (Day # 14)

Yesterday my internet was down for the majority of the day. Which kept me from posting, but it's back today so on with the 40 Chores in 40 days.

I don't know about everyone else, but in my home, between the five of us, shoes can be scattered everywhere. So, I put an old ugly red crate as you walk in the front door for shoes to be placed in, one so they aren't being tripped over and two we aren't on a search for them come school mornings. It actually has worked out very well and it's not too difficult for the kids to remember. The only problem is the shoe crate can become overflowing with shoes and it's ugly. So, on day 14 of the 40 days of chores I weeded out all the shoes, mostly summer sandals that aren't being worn, and returned them to closets. I also replaced the crate with a black leather basket that I just happen to have stuffed full of books downstairs. I don't know that I am completely happy with it, but it will do until I figure out a better solution. I also admit it's much better than the red crate


It's not a big differenc, but at least the ugly red crate is gone!
