10 Great Uses For Shoe Holders You Probably Never Thought Of

If you enjoyed some of the ideas from Great Uses For Shoeboxes, How To Organize Your Home With Hooks, and Altoid Tin Crafts and Uses, here is the final installment of how to organize your home with things you already own, and one of my favorites, because shoe organizers (those over the door shoe-holders) are very versatile, especially if you choose a clear shoe organizer so you can see everything you are storing inside the compartments.

How To Organize Your Home With Shoe Organizers

1. Use a shoe organizer to organize small electronics, gadgets, and cords.

2. Store craft supplies such as yarn, ribbon, glue, glitter, and more in the separate compartments of the shoe organizers.

3. Organize your bathroom and linen closet by storing toiletries you stock up on when there is a sale, and have them ready when you need them.

4. Use a small, clear shoe organizer as a spice rack to easily find and grab what you need when cooking for a more organized kitchen.

5. Store hats and mittens for winter neatly inside a closet.

6. Organize gift wrapping, ribbons, bows, and tags in a clear shoe organizer to make getting ready for the holidays and birthday parties a snap.

7. Keep cleaning supplies together so you are ready to go when it’s time to clean and organize your home.

8. Store video games, remotes and controllers tangle-free in separate compartments.

9. Store nails, screws and tools you may need around the house for minor repairs and upkeep in a makeshift tool kit.

10. Create a diaper changing station supply holder that is portable, organized, and convenient.

    I have been looking for these plastic shoe holders and can’t find any. Do you know of a place I could buy them? If you do, could you send the information to me through my email address.

  • This might work in my bathroom, of all places. One of the photos above has toothpaste in it, which gave me the idea. I try out men’s grooming products for my blog and use a ton of product besides. Metro, I suppose, but it’s partly my job. Anyway, I’ve got limited storage space in my bathroom, though the room itself is fairly huge. I could put one of these on the back of the door and organize product by type, or alphabetize! Just had a wonderful epiphany! Thanks for the great suggestion.ReplyCancel

  • I need to use one in my pantry as a spice rack – what a great idea!ReplyCancel
