I have a problem, but I am not ashamed; I love shoes and handbags…a lot. I find that they are a simple and quick way to update an outfit in a matter of minutes. Casual to dressy, classic to whimsical, conservative to creative, you name it.
This love affair of mine means I like to buy shoes and handbags…a lot. Not out of control shopping, just taking advantage of sales for the shoes and handbags that will work with the clothes I own and replace the ones that are worn out, uncomfortable, or no longer get worn.
I took the above four 4 pairs of sandals out of my closet, as I no longer wear them. One pair will be donated to the local Community Center, and the other three will be consigned come next April. They can be consigned because they are in great condition and have been stored properly in my closet. There is money to be found in your closet, or at the very least clothes that would be greatly appreciated by those who are in need.
I only bought 2 pairs of sandals that I love, are comfortable and were a great deal. My new sandals will get worn very often, and now I have extra room in my closet along with more outfits to create
using my new shoes.
Tip: If you avoid changing handbags because it is time consuming, try using an insert like I do for my handbags. Then you will be able to switch one out for another in less than 20 seconds. Take a look at this handbag organizer from The Container Store.
