    Very good idea. We have a great cubby storage (one cubby per pair of shoes) and Pierre figured out, I think, 3 per person and 5 for me haha. And I DO NOT have tons of shoes :).
    Anyway, we got it in IA at Shopko and it is falling apart but it works so well that we want to find another one. I usually have Stef fix the shoes for us 😉

      I had a great test of it tonight. I was walking out the door and there were shoes everywhere. Ten seconds later they were all contained. Funny how even when it’s simple they still can’t get their shoes put away. 🙂

        yep we have the same thing here – they leave them on the front porch – so I usually make them round them up or have Stef do it – 10 seconds haha that is all it takes!

          but why couldn’t they take the ten seconds at point of entry – very frustrating.

  2. Hi! I bought a sturdy cubicle unit from Target and put it at the door in the garage against the wall. The kids have their own designated squares and the shoes go in before coming in the house. (Ha! I try, anyways! ;-)) The funny part is that they like to drop the shoes just outside of their bin on the floor. Yup. Just like the dishwasher. Close doesn’t count! So, with the older two, I actually charge them $1 for each pair of shoes left on the floor! It only happened a couple of times, though, and they wised up 🙂
    So glad I found you on #HeartsforHome!
    Blessings and smiles,

    • You have to “hit them where it hurts”. 🙂 For me, I find that revoking the computer for a day or two produces the change I want. 🙂
      Why do they always think close is good enough when it only takes about two seconds extra to get it done right?
