I found trays for us to put our shoes on in the kitchen. We have too many shoes in the kitchen and I needed a way to tell the kids that they can't have shoes all over the kitchen.
The trays are about seven inches by fourteen inches. When I showed the trays to the kids and presented my idea, two bought into the idea and one melted down. The one piled all of their shoes on the tray making sure that if they hung off, some part of the shoe was on the tray. I said, "no, the shoes must be fully on the tray." The shoes were unloaded and all but three pairs were taken to the basement, to go on the shoe shelf.
The kitchen looks much better now and it is safer. It will be easier to mop.
