An Organized Life: Shoe Storage

Let me just be honest and real. The shoe section of my closet looks zero like this...


I don't have tons and tons of shoes (at least I think I don't) on special shelves that were constructed by California Closets or by my handy man hubby. I wish I did and I'm praying for a handy man hubby. My closet may not be the most glamorous, but it is organized- and that makes me happy! If you read my blog you know that I have a strict requirement for organization- especially when it comes to my closet. I'd rather sleep an extra five minutes in the morning than spend it looking for that one shoe. So one thing I wanted to share about "builder" closet is my cheap solution to organizing my shoes. 

Here is how most of my shoes are stored...


I adore these space saving shoe boxes that are sold at The Container Store. They are clear, so you don't have to take Polaroids of the shoes and they fit just about every kind of shoe...

from heels (these KILL my feet, but I love em')...


to wedges. I'm loving my TOMS that I first mentioned here.


Even these $15 sandals from Target have their own box...


If those little sandals didn't have their own box, then they would get lost in my "miscellaneous" shoe basket. These are shoes that I don't wear that often and can sustain a scratch or two from other shoes...


Yep, those are M&M slippers and I love those, too...

You may have already known about these lovely little stackable shoe boxes from The Container Store. If you didn't, you can purchase them here for only $1.79 a box! Or you can buy a case of 20 for $29.80, which is the cheaper deal- especially if you have lots of shoes. They also have special boxes for boots and men's shoes.

Do you have a special way of organizing your shoes?

  1. One of the selling points of our home was the giant foyer closet that I knew could hold my shoes. I installed multiple shoe racks to hold my collection. I like the clear box solution, too, because it keeps your shoes dust free. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I love your shoe organization! It made me happy just looking at it. And you know I love those Target $15 sandals ;) I have 3 slanted shoe "shelves" in my closet, but I really like your idea of storing shoes in those pretty, clear bins.

  12. I have those same shoe boxes from The Container Store and I love them. Makes so much easier to stack my shoes since they are all the same size unlike the boxes shoes originally come in. Plus they're great for shoes I get from stores like Nordstrom Rack, TJMaxxx, etc that don't always come in a box. I also have the boot boxes since they are sturdier than the regular boxes.

    I even have wooden hangers in a lighter natural color from IKEA. Guess I just like uniformity.

    Glad to know I'm not the only one ;)

  24. D 'autres raisons pour lesquelles les chiens peuvent tomber plus facilement que d' habitude sont l 'alimentation et l' anxiété.Si les chiens ne sont pas suffisamment nourris et / ou nourris, ils risquent de perdre plus de poils que d 'habitude.Il en va de même pour le stress, quand le chien est sous pression pour quelque raison que ce soit, il risque de perdre davantage de cerveau.
