I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading
Jan2023: Not much has changed. Writing a fanfiction now O_o as well as reading but I bought 7 new books in December and hope to get those read soon. Crossing fingers about adding challenges (late!)

A Shoe Challenge

Wear it or Toss it
 Shoe Challenge
June 13, 2013 to June 12, 2014

hosted by Hanna at Booking in Heels

read more about the challenge and why she's doing it, here

The idea is simple. Wear every pair of shoes that you own, at least once, during the next twelve months. Pictures must be taken as proof and shoes must be worn outside somewhere. Walking to the mailbox doesn't count. If the shoes are not worn during that time, donate them or toss them.

The hard part to this is that summer is here. Summer means wearing the same pair of flip-flops every where. The challenge is a great idea for me since I have shoes I haven't worn in so long, they're dusty! Might as well clear out as I'm cleaning up.

Not sure about the pictures...maybe a weekly post with the books I've read? Yikes, now you'll know how often I don't go farther than the mailbox!

updated Nov 5
It is getting cold here so I'm finally wearing something more than the same pair of sandals! 

Saved: sandals (flip flops), black dress flats, brown half boots, Brooks running shoes.

Tossed: 3 pairs black dress shoes (2 flats, 1 heeled), 3 pairs sandals (1 flip flops, 2 Dr. Scholl's - yikes, I think these are 30 years old!)

There are also six pairs of shoes in the donation pile (2 boots, 1 sandals-not flip flops, 2 dressy heels, 1 casual flats)

I don't think I've made much of a dent but there are 12 fewer pairs of shoes in my closet!

. . . still no pictures

update Jul 1:
No more progress on shoes but small progress in other areas. I'll get back to the closet, eventually!

You've just made me so, so happy... I'M NOT ALONE! :D

It's weird though - I find it easier to wear my shoes in Summer when it's warm. In Winter my feet get cold and I basically wear the same pair of boots over and over...

ARGH. I just realised I didn't include my boots and the shoes that are in my wardrobe in my total. Damn it.

Good luck! And thanks again for joining me :)
