DIY Shoe Storage Ideas for Small Spaces
A simple inexpensive shoe organizer can be hung over the door, on the wall, or even (genius!) on the back side of a room divider screen. If all of those spaces are full, try putting shoes under your bed in a box like this, or use one of these awesome organizers to hide them under your bed skirt — isn’t it awesome the things you can find on Amazon?
