So you'd appreciate the beauty of this new system, let me show you the "before" shot of some of my shoes -
Other pairs were also kept under the bed like so -
Now they're still in different places in the house but at least they're neatly stacked. Yes.
My plastic shoe boxes aren't really clear but are more opaque. I got them on sale (Buy 1 Take 1) from the Landmark for P125 or around P60 each. That's a good deal considering that clear shoe boxes sell on Amazon at 10 for $35, or roughly P130 per box. Anyway, I got 32 of these boxes in the 6.3L size because I have big feet. There is enough room in a box for two flats -
Wedges and heels would fit more snuggly -
I intentionally bought only 32 boxes so I am forced to keep only 32 pairs of shoes and chuck the rest. It turns out, I can't. Although I was able to let go of some shoes, I still had to squeeze in 2-3 pairs in some of the boxes. Oh well. At least now I'm down to around 50 pairs, and everytime I buy new shoes, I know that I must first let go of a pair because I don't have space for both anymore. Yey.
After adopting this organizing system for about a week, I realize that clear plastic would have been the better option. It's because spotting the right shoes in the opaque ones can be difficult. I spend more time now looking for shoes in boxes that all look alike! Anyway, this can be remedied by pushing the boundaries and further organizing your shoes by color, height, ocassion or...alphabetically according to brand. It really depends on how crazy you are. As for me, this is as far as my "psychological condition" goes. Goodluck!
