If you’re guilty of loving shoes as much as I do, you probably get frustrated from time to time when they’re all over the floor. You also may have a very frustrated husband who has to deal with your addiction and somehow manage to pay for it. The least you can do is get them up off the floor so it might look like you have a few less than you do.
Count and Categorize
Gather up your shoes. Let’s see what we’re working with here. You’ll probably uncover shoes you haven’t worn in ages and you may realize you’ll never wear them again. If you can stomach it, get rid of some to make room for more!
Sort your shoes by style, color, season, worn most often, or anything else that makes sense to you. It doesn’t really matter how you choose to do it as long as the system you implement will make your shoe storage easy to navigate.
Hang, Box, or Bench
Once you’ve done that, you can decide how you want to store them. If you have plenty of space in your closet, then you have lots of options, but if you’re running short on storage, use the storage in a piece of furniture to work overtime.
Hanging is an excellent way to get your shoes off the floor and up where you can see them. They’ll be hanging right next to your favorite outfit so you can see right away if they’ll match or not.
Shoe boxes are easy to stack. Keep your shoes in the original box and place them on shelves so you’ll always know exactly what’s inside. You can also use clear plastic tubs or install custom shelving.
Your storage bench in the hall has been waiting for the perfect use, and the location is ideal for people taking off their shoes when they first walk in the door. You can grab what you need quickly as you head off to work.
By organizing your shoes, your closet will be cleaner and getting ready every morning will be a breeze. How do you store your shoes?
