Closet Organizers!



Ya'll might have remembered when I posted this picture from a previous tackle in my guest room. Here, I use my shoe organizer to store holiday, party, and gift items.



I recommend these things to everyone! Closet shoe organizers are so versatile in terms of what you can use them for. Whether you live in a house or an apartment, you can't go wrong with these. The space they can create for you in virtually every closet or doorway is almost endless!

In the kids' rooms, I do use them for shoes. However, Luke also has some of his hats and miscellaneous items in his, while Anysa keeps some of her hair accessories in hers.


This is in my kitchen pantry. I keep storage containers, container wraps, snacks, clippies, spices, straws, extra garbage bags.


This is my hall pantry closet off the kitchen. I keep vitamins, Kleenex, plastic cups and silverware, washcloths.


This is my hall coat closet. I keep the kids' bubbles, paints, pencils, cards, some fine motor stuff, along with some camera stuff, and sunscreen and bug repellent.

Right now, I am using the cheaper plastic versions. The ones I have had for awhile. As I start to replace them, I want to get and would recommend, the nylon/double-pocket ones. They just seem to look nicer and be sturdier.

If you decide to do this, I would LOVE to hear back from you and see all the creative ways everyone uses these!

That looks great! I like how they look inside closet doors.

I have my eye out for one to hang on the door to the basement in our laundry/drop zone area to use for mittens and gloves and other things we might need as we're running out the door. I think it's a fabulous idea. My son has one that's actually not a shoe organizer, but the same idea with different size pouches that he uses for storing craft items, gameboy supplies, CD player, etc. They're quite wonderful. I'd love to use more, but we don't have many doors like that in our house.

I've been wondering about getting one for my sons room, now I'm thinking about getting several. Thanks for the tip!

Oh my Organization Guru! I just wanted to say that I absolutely LOVE my organizer that's in my kitchen pantry! You're a genius. A slave driver, but a genius! If I didn't have those hideously tacky mirror sliding doors on my closet, I'd put one there, too! Love ya' girl!

I used one on the inside of my linen closet as a first aid kit (who wants to dig through drawers when they are bleeding?)

One pocket had regular bandaids, one had the larger ones, one for gauze, one for tape, one for bactine and neosporin, one for rubbing alcohol...
it was great because I could easily show babysitters, etc. and always knew where the thermometer or tweezers were!

This is great. I love how you showed how many different ways they can be used.

I don't have a single one of those. BUT, I think I just may have to get some!

Excellent, Stacey - I remember your blog; I'm sure I've visited you before.

I use one for shoes (how boring!) and another in my study for various things like camera, cords, MP3 cables, etc...
