Shoes, Shoes, Shoes

If you are like me you can never have too many shoes (alright, you can but don’t tell my husband I said that). Storing shoes is an issue with many of my clients. For one thing, we all have plenty of shoes. For another thing, shoes are bulky and not easy to store. So here are a few tips:

Invest in some clear stackable shoeboxes. This is what I use for the majority of my shoes in my closet. They stack nicely so they maximize storage space and it is easy to see what you have.

Put out of season shoes away. Just like it is not necessary to have your Christmas sweaters out in April, it is not necessary for flip flops to be taking up room in your closet in January. When you put out of season clothes away, put the shoes away too.

For the pile of shoes that inevitably ends up near your entryway you need an attractive storage solution. Try a bench that opens where the kids can stow away their cleats and play shoes when not wearing them. A nice big basket works well too, provided it is not too deep.

Keep the shoes you wear the most easily accessible. My husband and I have a stackable shoe rack in the bottom of our walk-in closet where we keep our sneakers and slippers.

What are some of the ways you keep shoes organized? Feel free to share in the comments.
