Did I ever tell you the story of the time I was at a pool party wearing my favorite new, cork wedges? I was only at the party about 10 minutes before I found myself flailing in the pool, fully dressed with my shoes still on. My brother-in-law thought it would be super funny to push me in the pool. That day I learned two things one, never walk near my brother-in-law when there’s a pool nearby and two, cork wedges soak up pool water, expand to more than double their size, and never go back to normal.

While I was not able to donate my swollen cork wedges, if you have a pair of shoes you rarely wear you can donate them to Soles4Souls or at a DSW Shoe Store. Heels too high, they pinch your toes, or you simply don’t like them? Why keep them? And in case you’re wondering, yes, you can donate single shoes. Organizations will try to match them up to make a close pair. If that’s not possible they’ll put them in the craft section so talented crafters can make something using single shoes. No, you are not allowed to keep them for a future craft I think we both know you’ll never do. But do keep the pairs you like neat and tidy with these organizers:

In the closet


Under the bed
