A family of shoes all in one place can be pretty scary for the novice organizer. But, I am here to show you that it's easy to set up a system if you do some planning first. Wow, lots of shoes, can't believe it! So, I purchased six shoe organizers to organize my family shoes to add to my garage. They hold all of the kids' shoes and my seasonal shoes as well as, my husband's work outside shoes.
The below picture is all the shoes we had in the entire home. Wow, lots of shoes, can't believe it! Think about it, you probably have at least 10 pairs of shoes right now that you wear throughout the year. So with a family of four that can be at least 40 pairs of shoes. Crazy, right? So to handle this huge mess, I first started by getting all the shoes from the entire home. Winter and summer shoes together so I could see ALL the shoes that we had.
I determined that my daughter and I had the most shoes so we would probably need 3 organizers each. My son would need 2 and my husband would need 1 organizer.
Then I purchased six shoe organizers to organize my family shoes to add to my garage. They hold all of the kids' shoes and my seasonal shoes as well as, my husband's work outside shoes.

Ta-Da! By nesting the shoes together, you can fit as much as 4 pairs in one drawer to as little as 2 pairs of boots in one drawer. Try it and see how many shoes you can store in your space. I purchased the black bins from IKEA recently and purchased the white bins some years ago, unfortunately, they do not have the white bins anymore. They do have bins in red as well.
We added hooks on the left side for coats and snowsuits that may need drying. Surprisingly, the shoes do not get as cold as you would think.
