Day 5 ~ Shoe Bins

Somehow we seem to have a LOT of shoes.  Maybe it's because we live in an area with four distinct seasons that require specific footwear.  Maybe it's because we get a lot of hand-me-downs.  Maybe it's because there are six of us?!

I've tried different methods of storage but what I have found works best is to keep our currently used shoes in our wardrobes as discussed on Day 4.  Off season shoes or boots get stored up in these pretty baskets on top of the wardrobe.

And little girl, who seems somehow at 4 to have the most shoes, has a cutie bin in her wardrobe.  The bigger kids are required to stack theirs fairly neatly but she gets to pile hers in the bin.

If your outdoor gear storage area is your closet, try storing off season shoes in baskets on the top shelf.  Or maybe it would work to line bins along the bottom.  Perhaps you have an empty space where you could hang a shelf and store some bins.  Experiment to find a shoe storage system that works best for your family.
