This post is kind of an extension of my Winter Baskets post. I like to keep a large basket of slippers and warm socks by the front door. This is great in the winter, and also works well on rainy or muddy days the rest of the year. Guests who remove their shoes at the door can choose a pair of slippers or warm socks to wear - this way their feet won't get cold on the wood floors. My basket has slippers that I've sewn and socks that I've knit, but you could just as easily use store-bought ones. Look for sales! Buy several pairs at once. Also try to keep a variety of sizes, for both children and adults. These can really come in handy!
