And, speaking of shoes. . . they seem to be an on-going battle around our house. Lots of little shoes (accompanied by lots of little dirty socks in the fall and winter) take over, and it drives me crazy. So, I've purchased one of these from IKEA, hoping it will solve all of our problems.
I especially like the wire baskets (that you buy separately). They're big and only $2.50 each. I think they would also be a great solution for kids rooms, laundry rooms, kitchens, etc., and would be fun spray painted in bright colors.
Do you have the same problem in your house? If so, what's your best shoe solution?
