Women own an average of 19-20 pairs of shoes. And, if there is a family of four, you can expect to have in your home between 76 to 80 pairs of shoes. If this is true, they take up a lot of space in your home. So, to combat this, we need to design creative ways to store this huge amount of shoes. Below are several different options to help you organize your shoe collection.

Easy Tips for Organizing Shoes
Find a unit that can hold a large number of shoes.
These bench organizers for shoes can easily store several pairs in one unit. Having a bin for each person in the family works nicely so there are no missing shoe arguments.
In a larger home, getting units that store shoes vertically inside a coat closet works too.
Some larger homes have several different closets near the entryway so using the doors or inside these closets will give you some hidden spaces to store your shoes.
In smaller homes, be creative when looking for places to store shoes like under the bed and behind furniture.
These items work nicely under beds. Using under the bed storage to store your shoes helps keep your closet less cluttered. Read our Unique Clutter-Free Ways to Organize Shoes post.
Don't forget to think outside the house box when storing shoes.
We mounted a shoe organizer on the wall in our attached garage. Here is one unit from Ikea that we purchased and mounted them in our garage so everyone can take off their shoes before entering the home. This helps to control our seasonal allergies. You can visit our post here.
Remember to purge your shoes before finding any new organizing unit. Then, count the number of shoes you have and make sure whatever the number is, you will be able to fit them in a storage unit. Check out our posts on shoe organizing tips.
