A finished recycled hanger flip flop holder.I thought this would be an easy way of keeping track of your sandals. You can hang it in your closet. I'm going to put some flip-flops on it too. One hanger will hold about 3 or 4 pairs of flip-flops.


Total Time: It took me about 30 minutes.

We constantly have a heap of shoes in front of our front door making it difficult to walk into our house. A short bookshelf that wasn't being used became the home for the family's shoes!


Even my husband's big shoes fit on the shelves perfectly.

I've been trying for a long time to come up with an idea on how to store my many pairs of shoes. After a long time of thinking, I came up with the idea to store them on a chain.

An easy project with three pieces of wood can help organize that pile of shoes at the bottom of your closet. My darling husband constructed this simple shelf, at my request, and his shoes and boots are manageable and tidy.


I asked him to make one for my closet too.

I live in a small space. I don't have a closet. So, how do I store my shoes and accessories? Bookshelves. I use bookshelves, with adjustable shelving, that I already own.

Shoes come in pairs, you wear them in pairs, and you put them away in pairs - so why do they end up SINGLE? I have so many nice things, I am trying increasingly to shop in my own closet.

What is the proper way to store shoes without paying for expensive storage organizers? Nobody has time to dust shoes on a shelf.


I opted for keeping them in the original box, then take a picture of the shoes.

A small child's wagon, either metal or plastic, makes for a great shoe storage container by a front or back door, or even in the child's bedroom.

When buying shoes, keep the boxes they come in. This way, they'll be protected from being knocked around in your closet, you won't have to worry about loosing one, and it's great at helping to keep your closet tidy.

If you can get hold of the cardboard boxes shoes are sold in (or you may have kept them anyway), I have heard a tip for taking a photo of each pair and sticking it to the front of the box, then stack the boxes up in an unobtrusive corner.

Use your noodle, your swimming noodle that is. Insert it in your boots to keep them standing upright when not in use. This hint keeps them from falling over and getting crinkled.

Go to Dollar Tree and buy plastic tub size shoe boxes that they have. The bottoms are see through and the plastic lid helps keep shoes in good condition.

I store high heels on one of my laundry baskets. I usually put the glittery ones on there to protect them from having other shoes squish them.

I use one of those wood cubes with dividers. They hold up to nine pairs of shoes, but I have found that you can store umbrellas and other things in any sections you don't fill with shoes.

I keep mine in the plastic "shoebox size" Rubbermaid totes. That way I can stack them and easily grab the ones I want. For shoes I don't wear a lot, I keep them stuffed with tissue paper.
