Better than a boot to the head

Why do I always hear the cry from the mudroom, "There aren't any boots in my size!" Let me assure you, unless your foot is the size of Shaquille O'Neil's, we have a pair of boots in your size!

Since we have an "if it fits, it's yours" attitude toward the boot mess, the issue lies in the ability to locate and recognize the size in the plethora of boots that we have been blessed with.

With a nod to the organizational system of roller rinks, I used a paint pen to identify the sizes on the backs of our boots. Know your size? Find your boots!

Here's the shelf I recently dragged up from the basement. When we first moved in here, we used a half-bookcase to hold our boots. Then we moved to a plastic, 5-shelf bookcase. Now we have this big mama-jama!

Here are the sizes on the boots. Now if only the boots would put themselves back on the shelf!
