A few days ago while sitting in bed on my computer, I looked over at my closet and realized how messy my shoes had gotten. We all know I'm quite the pursuer of shoes and have accumulated a sizeable shoe collection which, as of late has become a bit disorganized. Since we're approaching the new year and I like to have projects on my to-do list, I figured it's time I organized my shoe closet. I'm assuming most of you are like me and we don't have the Devil Wears Prada dream closet, right?
We'll get there ladies, we will. But for now, we need to improvise. I like to say, "If Carrie Bradshaw can do it in her small New York apartment with a teeny tiny closet, then we can do it too."
Tips on How to Organize Your Shoe Closet
Here are a few times to best utilize your closet space:
- First thing's first, color and style. I like to coordinate my shoes by color and then put them into categories by style.... heels, wedges, sneakers, boots, flats, sandals. If you're the neat freak organizer-type you can get even more specific with closed toe heels, peep toes, lace-ups, and the list goes on.
