Hanging shoe organizers are abundant in every corner of the world. They’re the perfect small space solution, but we think they can be put to use for more than just shoes, or even on the back of your door. We’ve listed 9 of our favorite ways, see if you have one to add to the list!
1. Sort Mail & Bills: Using the individual pockets as a place to stash away mail, bills, letters or even stationary and office supplies is a great way to keep things organized while still in reach and out of pesky boxes and other traditional office storage.
2. Under Your Bed: Some closets are so small you’re lucky if you can get 1 shoe inside, let alone 20 pairs. Try attaching a shoe organizer flat to a piece of board that’s been outfitted with wheels. Slide your shoes in like normal and then simply roll out the bag whenever you need to add or subtract to the system. Out of sight and not taking up any closet space!
3. Bathroom Accessories: Even the most low maintenance person still have a few bathroom products to keep track of. Sprays, waxes, lotions and potions are all great in these slender pockets. They can also be a great place to keep rubber bands, bobby pins or even large pins or broaches if you have them.
4. Outdoor Planter: Try poking a few holes in the bottom of each compartment and packing them full of dirt and small plants of your choice. It’s a great way to create a living wall without paying the $100+ price tag of living wall systems.
