I'm a few months away from moving into the new apartment with my love, which I'm very excited about, the only thing causing me some concern is the considerable downgrade in closet space. There are only three small closets and (thankfully) a storage area in the new place whereas I have an exorbitant amount of storage in my current place. Of course, from a glass half-full perspective, downsizing the closet may lead to a very necessary and therapeutic sartorial purge that will result in my wardrobe consisting of quality rather than quantity. But the reality is my boyfriend and I will have to share a closet roughly a third of the size of the one I have now. And this begs the question: where will my shoes live? Right now I'm keeping them all in their boxes stacked on the top shelf of the closet but that doesn't seem to be quite feasible. Maybe I should place the best pairs on wall-mounted shelves outside the closet? But who wants to have to continually be dusting their shoes? Any thoughts? How do you store your shoes?
