Default shoes

Do you wear your shoes in the house? We take ours off outside and have a shoe rack in the garage. My parents did that when I was growing up and still do. My Dad was stationed in Japan for a while (long before me) and I think that is where they picked it up. We do it because I am always thinking about shoes walking into a nasty gas station bathroom and then onto my floors where the baby will be playing. I don't think it is gross for others to where their shoes in the house just a personal preference. It is a pain sometimes because the shoes get all dusty outside and you have to worry about spiders etc. What do you do?

Once the kids showed up we started leaving them in the foyer.. I just bought a rack to keep in the corner to store them on.. and once we get our new carpets NO ONE will be able to wear shoes in the house..

We used to take our shoes off when the house was new and the carpets sparkling. But once Seth hit potty training at age 3 the carpets went to hell and now we don't care. But OH I hope for new carpet one day!!

We take our shoes off we have a spot in the moodroom for the shoes. We do it to keep the floors clean. Tims biggest pet peeve is my parents because they refuse to take their shoes off when they come over
