I don’t think I have that many shoes. I’m a size 5, so I usually can’t find shoes that fit and that I like because the selection is dismal. But, compared to my husband who has 3: one for work, one pair of gym shoes and one pair of dress shoes, it may seem like a lot.

I tried over the door shoe hangers, but they squish the shoes. I tried those metal racks, but they kept tumbling over. Once I had lined them up on the floor of my closet, but it’s pretty dark in my closet and more than once I went out with one brown loafer and one black.

I like how they are set up now. In my office I have once of those sectional organizers. I have a bookshelf, then attached and underneath I have shoe cubbies like this:

(You can get something similar at Target.) I can fit my 8 shoes and 2 pairs of short boots in it. Most shoes fit both pair in one slot.

I can’t fit all my summer sandals and winter boots though. So I switch out my shoes at the beginning of the season. I packed up the summer sandals today.

How do you organize your shoes?

    I bought an under the bed storage container (the big, flat ones). I store my shoes in that, pairs sit together, the container keeps them from getting scattered or dusty under the bed. When I am looking for shoes to go with an outfit, I simply slide the container out to choose the best option. Shoes I don’t mind squishing (like many of my sandals) fit in the box with the tops together. Stored like this I fit a lot of shoes in one box!

    I really like Laura’s under the bed storage idea. I’ve been putting these containers under my bed in hopes of discouraging my dogs from taking up residence there before I go to bed. (They snore)

    Thanks Laura, I’m going to try this for my shoes and my purses as well!
