Organized Shoes

This weekend I bought a shoe organizing shelf from Target. I already had one which I used for my coat closet , I took that one and stacked it up with my new one and created shelves to organize my shoes. As you can see all our shoes were on the floor before collecting dust and such and then I saw this pin  on pinterest which inspired me to finally get my shoes organized. Don't you just LOVE Pinterest?! Sorry for the bad quality of the pictures. There is no natural light in our closet! 
Are you wondering how I get my boots to stand up like that? Just roll up some newspaper and tuck them in your boots! Don't have newspaper? use empty paper towel rolls! They work just as well! I learned this this trick on another blog a while back, I can't remember which one! 
I love going into my closet just to see my organized shoes now! :) I plan on organizing our entire closet and maybe stenciling it like I did with our coat closet. The shoes are just the beginning. 
What have you organized recently? 


  1. I love the idea of putting paper in your boots, great idea! And I bet your closet feels SO much better after getting those shoe organizers!

  2. I love organized shoes!! I put in a shelf in our front closet and my son LOVES tucking away his shoes too. It's nice :)

    Nice trick with the news papers too! I've done the paper towel rolls before or I'll just try and keep the original stuffing that came in the boots.

    Doesn't organization make you so happy hehe

  3. I recently heard that the average woman only has 13 pairs of shoes and wears 3 of them most frequently. 13 pairs? I have just about 100! I need a 12-step program!

  4. Nothing! I sooo need to organize. I like how the boots stand up. Mine are just slouching on the floor. It looks great!

  5. Great idea to roll up newspapers for your boots!! I'm going to have to try that for sure ;)


I would LOVE to hear from you! :)
