Why I Always Shake My Shoes Before Putting Them On

Building on yesterday’s tip about checking pool noodles for snakes: Whenever I travel somewhere and even when I’m home in L.A., I almost always turn over my shoes and shake them out to remove any spiders or bugs that might have crawled in during the night or while I was away. Fortunately, I’ve only found spiders in them twice, but those two times make it worth the quick shake every time.

Have you ever found any insects or animals in your shoes?
