Great Ways to Organize Shoes

It is a good idea to take the time to organize your shoes. Doing so makes it a lot easier to find the pair you need. It also prevents damage being done to ones in the “shoe pile” that is cluttering up the bottom of your closet. Here are some great ways to organize your shoes.
Fun Ways to Organize Your Shoes
Hang them on the Door
There is more than one type of shoe organizer that is designed to hang over the back of a door. That door could be the one for your closet or the one for your bedroom (depending on the space and type of closet door you have).
Shoe organizers that are consist of a series of pockets are an easy way to keep a pair of shoes together (and off the floor). There are also over the door racks that work well for shoes that have heels.
Make Storage into Art!
Do you have some very fancy high heeled shoes that you absolutely love? Why not display them in a way that makes them look like a work of art. Get some crown moulding and attach it to the wall over your closet door. (You may want to paint it first so it matches the room). Hang your favorite high heeled shoes over the crown moulding so that the toes hang down. Now, your best shoes are easy to find, off the floor, and displayed beautifully.
Repurpose a Bookshelf
Tired of the clutter of shoes that appear near your front door? Tuck them away in a small bookcase. Use an old, low to the ground, bookcase that has two shelves. Each pair of shoes can be placed on the shelf. This gets the shoes off the floor and prevents a “shoe pile”. It also makes them easy to grab before you dash out the door.
Use Clear Boxes
Clear, plastic, boxes are great for storing shoes. Put one pair of shoes into each box and close the lid. This prevents dust from gathering on the shoes. You can stack the boxes on top of each other, or place them in a row underneath your bed.
Take a photo of each pair of shoes before you store them away. Place the photo inside the front of the box. At a glance, you can find out which pair is in each box. You won’t even have to open the box to know what pair it holds.
