6 Ways To Organise Your Shoe Collection

You can't buy happiness but you can buy shoes and that's kind of the same thing. As a woman, it is easy to become inundated with all types of shoes like flats, heels, pumps, sandals, boots, booties. The million dollar question is not whether we have too many shoes, it is whether we know how to maximise our closet space and organise our shoes effectively. Read on for six tips on organising your shoe collection.  

Shoe storage with photos

1. Take pictures of your shoes and stick them to your shoe boxes 

if each shoe is stored away in a dark shoe box, taking photographs of your shoes is a great way to visualise your shoe collection  If you don't have the time to take photographs then a simple post-it note with a brief description of the applicable shoe will also make your life easier. 

2. Lay heels flat

If you have a limited amount of cupboard space and an infinite number of shoes then try lying your heels flat in order to create more space. 

3. Utilise quality stackable shoe boxes

Flimsy, weak shoe boxes end up collapsing on each other and damaging your shoes in the process. It is worth the investment to buy quality shoe boxes that are sturdy and durable. Our clear shoe boxes have a drawer functionality and drop front lids for easy accessibility. They are high-quality and will not collapse when stacked. Click on the link to shop our storage boxes. 

Sandals storage side by side

4. Place sandals side by side 

Sandals and the likes don't necessarily need to be packed one-by-one. They can be packed comfortably side by side. This is a great way to make use of your cupboard space. 

5. Keep shoe types together 

Shoes types can include boots, heels, sandals, trainers and flats to name a few. You can significantly simplify your life by packing shoe types together.

If your going for a run, having your trainers all in one space means you can quickly grab a pair before stepping out.

Seasons will also determine what type of shoe you wear and when. It is also good to consider the shoe types you wear the most as these should always be front and center in your wardrobe.
