    Totally agree Cindy. My philosophy with good clothes has always been to wear them, rather than save them for best. The way I see it, what am I waiting for? This really might be as good as it gets, so I wear the new boots to the supermarket rather than saving them for some special occasion that might never come!

    Personally, I store my shoes inside boxes and stock them inside the shoe cabinet. When I want to use any for that special or appropriate occasion, I am shocked by what I find. Despite the preservatives, my shoes are either flaking or worn out. So much for preserving them for the right time to wear!
