i really feel like i accomplished something! now all i need to do is get my shoes in order. i had to take out all the shoe boxes in my closet to make room for this. now i'm screwed w/ my shoes. but baby steps. i'll need to think of another idea to fix that situation. john's answer is to throw away the boxes. but i don't think he understands that the shoes will get ruined if i just leave them laying out on top of each other in basket or something. NOT GONNA HAPPEN! ugh. i think this is the kind of shit people are referring to when they say "first world problems."
