When listener Brette called to tell me she had way too many shoes and not enough space we both agreed it's a first world problem. I suggested she purge and she flatly refused, saying more space was the only answer. After all, she claims that there are so many shoes on the floor in her closet that when she wades in there it's ankle deep! Not to mention the boots on the shelf, the sneakers under the bed, and her collection of slippers. Wait, who has a collection of slippers? Someone obsessed with footwear, that's who! If you're in the same boat don't worry, there are experts out there who know how to solve your storage issues. As for the addiction...I can't offer a referral, only my sympathy.
