I Love Flip-Flops

Ever since I retired from the business world in 2007, I have pretty much lived in flip-flops.  Here in Florida, we can almost wear them year-round.

I SERIOUSLY love flip-flops!

Why do I love flip-flops so much?  Well, that's an easy question to answer!

  • They are easy to slip on and off.

  • They are cool and comfortable.

  • One of my guilty pleasures is regular pedicures and flip- flops allow me to show off whatever pretty color  polish I have on my toes. 

  • The styles and colors are endless.

  • They’re cheap.  Most of the time I pay far less than $15.00 a pair so a shoe-a-holic, like me, can have a pair of cute flip-flops in every color to match every outfit, without breaking the bank.

Now, if you are like me and love flip-flops, you probably have at least a few (and possibly way too many) pairs.

And maybe if you have a *few* pairs of flip-flops, the bottom of your closet just might look like mine.

(YIKES!  It’s a wonder I can even find a matching pair in that mess!  Believe it or not, I’m such a neat freak in most all other areas of my life.)

The other day, I was blog hopping and on the blog, EPBOT,  I ran across the most ingenious idea for keeping flip-flops neatly organized.

Isn’t that fabulous?!  This is definitely one of those ideas that makes you say, “Why didn’t I think of THAT?”

I am SO going to put this on my list of projects!

If the bottom of your closet is covered with a messy mound of flip-flops like mine, go check out her easy  tutorial on how to make these flip-flop hangers.  (She also shows how the hangers work for ballet flats too, if those are more your thing).

Shari..
those hangers ARE adorable!
gotta check out the tutorial!!
being a Florida girl myself, I should LOVE flip flops! But I do Not!!
For me, having a very high arch, I need support!
so I have a pair of SAS sandals, older than the hills that my sis gave to me..they are sooooooo comfy!
My problem is all the other adorable shoes I seem to collect!..some of which are dress sandals...
