I have been in my current apartment for a year and am finally organizing my closet. My last place had built in shelving for shoes in the closet (well that's what I used it for). My current closet has two really high, long shelves. I tried putting the shoes on the floor (with and without a rack) but it was hard to see below my clothes, tough to keep organized and they kept falling off (since I don't have many heels). I really wanted to do an over the door shoe thing but I don't have a real door on my closet.
|one side had a bunch of shoes in boxes|
|other side had various shoes out of boxes|
|I even had shoes on the top shelf|
So I decided to splurge on plastic shoe boxes from the Container Store. Spring organization sale, 15% off coupon, and cashback from my bank made me feel slightly better ($1.69 each when you buy 20). I wanted the drop front boxes but not in the budget right now. I took a photo of each pair, printed it and then had it laminated and taped to the box (similar to what I did with the toy bin labels for H's playroom).
|I put shoes I wear most often closest to the door and on the top for easier access|
|All of my shoes on 1 shelf instead of 3! (I'm keeping 2 boxes of high heels on the top shelf for now though)|
How do you organize your shoes?
