What Houzz contributors are saying:
Maximize nooks and crannies. Space beneath a sharply angled ceiling or window-seat-adjacent often goes to waste. But it’s a great opportunity for built-ins. Attic conversions are particularly full of potential shoe storage spots.
Mend, repair and clean items as needed. If you are handy with a needle and thread, carve out some time to sew buttons back on and mend fallen hems. But if you’re not, no worries! Be honest with yourself that you’ll never mend these items yourself and stash them in a tote bag to bring to your dry cleaner (many are happy to do minor repairs) or a local seamstress. Drop off any winter wear that needs dry cleaning.Mend (or send out for mending) pieces that need new buttons, hems or zippers.Drop off shoes or boots that need repairing at a cobbler.Spruce up sweaters and coats by rolling a lint remover over them.Clean and polish leather shoes and boots.Clean out totes and purses.Catch up on laundry, including hand-washing, and fold everything neatly and put it away.
