Keeping track of everything your baby needs can be a daunting task. More than one child? Forget it. You’re practically suffocating under the weight of all your children’s gear. In the never-ending struggle that is “leaving the house”, make your life a little easier by getting organized before getting out.
Finding a missing shoe is always the most stressful, time consuming obstacle to getting out of the house on time. With such tiny little feet, the shoes that protect itty bitty toes are equally miniscule. It’s
like playing Where’s Waldo in real life. (So not as good as the book!)
Luckily, I’ve found a solution to keeping tiny shoes in perfect pairs: Wear A Pear. Designed by momtrepreneur Kristin Llamas, Wear A Pear is an ingenious set of shoe snaps which easily keep pairs of shoes together. It sounds too good to be true, right? Wrong. I tried out some shoe snaps, and I was pleasantly surprised.
Basically, the idea Llama pioneered is that shoes should stick together, making life easier by leaving you with one less thing to look for on your way out the door. I believe “thanks” are in order.
From the packaging, it’s somewhat difficult to understand exactly how Wear A Pear works. Although the back of the package provided instructions, I had to login to the website for further information. Here’s a little tutorial for all of us sleep-deprived moms:
I really liked how the shoes stayed together with the snaps. However, I wondered how to store the unused snaps (once the snaps are secured to a pair of shoes, the snaps stay in place. No need to remove!). Instead, I recycled old organic baby food jars. I plan on Pinteresting the jars up with a fancy makeover, but for now, these jars will keep Wear A Pear safe and easy to find!
