10 Genius Ways to Organize With Hanging Shoe Organizers
One of the things I really like to talk about is how to know when to buy organizing products and what kinds you should buy or shouldn’t buy.
Today, I am featuring a hanging shoe organizer because it’s super versatile, and you probably have not thought of using it in many of the ways I will be pointing out to you.
Hanging shoe organizers
The purpose of hanging shoe organizers is to store shoes vertically from a closet rod. These are not meant to contain heavy items, as they are typically made of cardboard covered in fabric. The cardboard will bend, and the fabric will tear, if overloaded.
Therefore, the best way to use a hanging shoe organizer is to store any small items you need convenient access to from within a closet.
To prevent it from getting too dirty when storing shoes, whenever possible, store the soles of the shoes facing each other. If that is not possible, you can place cardboard, poster board, or Dollar Tree chopping mats cut to size within each cubby for easy clean up. Shoe bins also fit perfectly within each cubby.
Other uses for hanging shoe organizers
1. Winter accessories
Other uses for hanging shoe organizers, besides shoes, include storage for hats and scarves. This can be great to keep in a coat closet for easy access to winter accessories for the whole family.
2. Cleaning supplies
You can also turn a coat closet into a cleaning closet, and store paper towels, trash bags, small cleaning tools, and cleaning cloths in a hanging shoe organizer.
3. Bath towels, washcloths, and toiletries

4. Small appliances
If you have a coat closet near your kitchen and or dining area, you can store small appliances or the parts to appliances.
5. Kitchen linens and table decor pieces
Essential kitchen items like kitchen towels, placemats, tablecloths, and even small table decor pieces like candles, candle holders, and posters also fit nicely and stay clean in hanging shoe organizers.
6. Seasonal decor
You can also store seasonal decor items like linens, pillows, and decor pieces inside of hanging shoe organizers. To make things super simple, designate a section or entire rack for each holiday or season.
Believe it or not, you can even store small rugs in them. Entryway rugs, bathroom rugs, kitchen rugs, and hallway runners can all be folded and stored there.
8. Baby care products
We mamas know that babies come with a lot of stuff, and baby care products can easily be organized right inside the nursery closet with the help of a hanging shoe organizer.
You can insert shoe bins and label each bin by category including burp cloths, washcloths, first aid products, lotions, ointments, hair accessories, hand mitts, socks, and shoes.
9. Craft supplies
You can even turn a hanging shoe organizer on its side and store yarn or fabric in your craft room. You can even store completed craft projects until you’re ready to sell or gift them.
10. Stuffed animals
Tired of tripping over stuffed animals in your child’s room. Hang a shoe organizer in their closet and slide clear plastic bins into each slot for all of the stuffed animals they have.
Hanging shoe organizers for storage
A hanging shoe organizer is perfect if you need to store a variety of lightweight items, and if you want to utilize the top and bottom of your closet for simple storage solutions.
And with it being so narrow, you won't even take up that much space. Just remember not to purchase more hanging shoe organizers than you actually need and pare down your personal items to what you want and need before you purchase any organizing products, in general.
A hanging shoe organizer can be a budget-friendly storage option since it is the same as purchasing multiple bins in one.
