Yesterday I decided to help my teenager clean out her closet. When it came time to put her shoes away, the first thing that came to mind was lining them up on one of the lower closet shelves.
Do you see where I'm going with this? If you're not getting it yet, you're about to have an "ah-ha" moment. Check it out!
How easy is that?!? I was able to fit two pairs in each magazine file. Using this storage idea, four pairs of shoes take up less linear space than two pairs stored the traditional way. These files were purchased a long time ago from Target for $2.50 each. Unfortunately I only had these two, so I'm going to have to purchase a few more before my teen's summer flip flop wardrobe gets put into rotation. I doubt that Target still has this black and white patterned file, so we'll probably have to go with an alternating or mix-and-match theme. Mix-and-match is stylish now, right?
I'll have more on the big closet clean-out in another post. I just couldn't wait to share this simple organizing idea with you. Do you have any easy organizing tips that have made a difference in your closet or your life? I'd love to hear about it if you do.
