end of the week exfoliation: broken boots

You would think that someone who is interested in living simply would fix or throw away boots with a broken zipper. But strangely, that has not been the case for me and my tall brown boots.

These questionably faux leather boots were my "go to" shoe of winter, 2007. I wore them daily until the left boot's zipper broke last March. I kept them around because I planned on taking them to the cobbler (There are still cobblers, right? It sounds way cooler than "shoe repairman.") and wear them this winter. But I never repaired them. They have sat on a shelf looking down at me- pleading to be fixed and employed again.

Looking at these boots now, I realize I don't like them. Given the opportunity, I wouldn't buy them- and if that is the case, why should I fix and wear them? Time to walk on.

  1. You could get them fixed and bring them to one of the consignment shops around Belmont and Clark.

    Personally, I'm going to throw some more old clothes into a bag and bring them to the salvo tomorrow. I have approx. 2,365,734 T-shirts I don't wear anymore. Last week I got rid of all of my crappy dishes because I only really need two plates and a couple forks.

    I can't wait for the week that I can say I got rid of my car.
