Let's do the math. There are 4 people living in a house. Each person has 7 pairs of winter shoes and 7 pairs of summer shoes. This includes boots, sandals, flip flops, sneakers, dress shoes, high heels. And that number is conservative. That means you will need to store 56 pairs of shoes. WOW. It adds up quickly. Here is our pile of shoes from a few years ago. Crazy right? Our pile is even bigger now.
Shoes can be difficult to organize especially in a smaller space. But to go out and have to buy yet another organizing unit to help organize these items also won't work.
Here are some unique clutter-free ways to organize shoes. Repurposing is great to eliminate the clutter.
Use vertical space to eliminate clutter on the floor. If you have a spare wall, try doing something like this.
Use back of doors in your closet to keep shoes off the floor and more likely to stay together. Using plastic shoe organizers works great for this purpose.
Repurpose bookshelves into a shoe organizer. I have some of these bookshelf tracks and bookshelves in my tool room since we removed them from my daughter's room last year. I can easily add these to our garage.
Remember to keep your space clutter-free repurpose as much as possible. We tend to have products used in other parts of the home that may work just fine to organize the shoes so go shopping in your house first before spending money.
