Yesterday I shared Two Quick Organizing Solutions for Laundry and Drawers, to help you calm some of your crazy. I seem to be focused on my laundry room these days – who knows why. But when the mood strikes me to organize something, I just go with it.
I have always repurposed things, even when it wasn’t a cool thing to do. One of my favorite organizing things to repurpose are those clear hanging shoe organizers. I mean, these things work so much better for everything BUT shoes as far as I’m concerned. When we moved into this house a couple years ago, I hung a shoe organizer on the inside of the laundry closet door and stored all my votive candles, tea lights, tapers, wax tarts, and pillars. It worked out perfectly (try it!). But I found that a better use of that laundry room closet shoe organizer was my cleaning supplies. Check it out…
Along with the drawer dividers, I’m going to make a trip to the Dollar Store and fill my cart with these things. They are both on my organizing must-have list! And here’s the thing – if you don’t have a door to hang these shoe organizers from, you can just hang them from nails, Command Hooks, whatever. You can cut them in half vertically or horizontally. They’re just plain handy. Be creative, but just an FYI: I hung one on the inside of our shower door for all our shampoo, body wash, etc and it worked great, but the lower pockets filled with water and it ended up molding. I’m working on making one out of another repurposed material that will drain the water from the pockets – I’ll post it when I’ve finished it.
To get your creative juices flowing, here are some other uses for using shoe organizers…

Of course, I guess you could always just put shoes in the darn things, but how boring is that?
