Organizing Shoes

Organizing projects in 30 minutes or less, right? Let’s organize shoes in about 3 minutes with just 2 supplies: one that you probably already have, and one that is free. You know I love free, right? And even better, I love turning clutter into a bonafide organizing solution!

Thrifty way to organize children's shoes

Start with a pile of shoes. Do the Sort and Purge thing.

Add a rectangular tote like this one. I’m betting you already have something like this.

Insert dividers from wine boxes. Free at local wine and liquor stores. Here in PA, the stores are called Fine Wine & Good Spirits. Kinda cracks me up. As if there is any other kind worth selling. Anyway, we’re interested in their case dividers today. Below, three of them are nested together. If you can’t find them in your neighborhood, of course, it’s Amazon to the rescue with case dividers shipped to your door.

Voila. Organized Shoes!

These are little girl shoes size ~10. This will certainly work for bigger shoes, but with only one shoe per slot depending on the size. This is a great way to store children’s shoes as you pass them down from one kid to the next, or to use for off-season storage.

I’ll be back tomorrow with a totally different shoe organizing solution and a closet makeover. But I’d love to hear what you think of this quick and thrifty shoe organizing strategy.

Thanks for following along on the 31 Days of Clutter-Free Living series. We’re nearing the end of the month, and I’d love to hear what spaces you’ve conquered!

    That is a great idea. I wouldn’t have thought of it but with so many shoes, everything is nicely contained and organized!
