It seems like kids have more on their plates today than ever before. They are constantly running from one activity to the next. They head straight from school to soccer practice and then they go out skateboarding with their friends. On the weekends, it is a dance recital or Sunday school or a family reunion. Between sports, formal events, and random day-to-day activities, kids today have a lot of occasions for a lot of different kinds of shoes. We all wish life could be a little simpler, but the fact is, you can’t wear your baseball cleats when you’re riding a skateboard. And no kid wants to be caught wearing his church shoes when he is hanging out with his friends. The problem is that for families with active children, shoes start to take over the whole house. Luckily, there are lots of terrific, fashionable, and convenient shoe organizers on the market so your kids can stay busy and you can stay sane. Here are a few examples.

As the years pass, our lives become more and more busy. We run around town collecting hobbies, friends, and new experiences. This can bring a lot of joy and personal growth, but it can also bring stress and clutter. Organizing your shoes isn’t going to drastically simplify your life. You’re still going to be running around like a crazy person half the time, and so is your family. But at least you won’t be tripping over each other’s sneakers when you are running out the door.
