One Way To Organize Kids Shoes

 

organize kids shoes



 

Girls.  Girls own too many shoes.  American women on average own 20 pairs!

Kids probably have more because they wear them for such a short period of time before they grow out of them.  I have 2 daughters, a 5 year old, and a 19 month old.  I’ve lost count the number of pairs of shoes my girls have.  In our house, even when my oldest grows out of hers, I’m not getting rid of the ones that still have wear left in them because her younger sister will use them in a couple of years.

So not only do we have too many little girl shoes, there is also NO closet in our girls large bedroom!  I live a modular cape cod, and the original owners just never built a closet into one of the bedrooms.  Why is beyond me, but I’ve had to come up with a solution.

Since we don’t have a “real closet” in the girls room, we have dressers and an armoire for their clothes that need hanging.  I recently added this 6 tier shelf to organize their shoes.  Even if you do have a closet, you can easily set up something like this in your kids closet.

 

Before:  

I did not have an organization system for the shoes.  I had some current ones for the baby in random dresser drawers.  I had off-season or the “Hand-Me-Down” pairs in boxes that were not labeled or easily found.  It was a mess and I decided to tackle these now that I was stuck inside on these cold and snowy days.closet storage

After:

6 Bins of shoes, sorted by size and season, including a “To Donate” bin and “Will Grow Into” bin for both girls.  (I like to buy ahead when I find shoes on sale.)

I purchased the shoe rack I think at Walmart awhile back.  The bins and girly butterfly stickers I got on Amazon.  Here are the links for references.

Glitter Fantasy Butterflies Stickers (Dover Little Activity Books Stickers) – My oldest picked these out and I used hot glue to be sure they stuck.

HOMEBASIX BC45C-CH 6-Tier Steel Wire Shelf, Chrome – the most similar one I could find to the one I have.

How about you?  How do you organize the gobs of kids shoes that end up at your house???
