Life Hacks - Uses for Hanging Shoe Organizer

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote a post on uses for over-the-door shoe organizers. Today's post is about hanging shoe organizers.


Wal-Mart
Once again, shoe organizers are not just for organizing shoes. Bryn Alexandra Dunn uses shoe organizers from IKEA to organize her fabrics. Ms. Dunn is an interior designer; she has a lot of fabric, so she uses four organizers.

This organizer from Pottery Barn is similar to one I use.

I do put fabric in the cubes, but I use the pockets for patterns instead of shoes. The center cubes could also be used to stack sweaters in a closet, and the pockets could be used to store scarves.

On the blog, Hative, I found this idea for storing spare toilet paper rolls in a broom closet. it could also be used to store paper towels, boxes of sweeper pads, garbage bags, vacuum bags, and disposable dust cloth boxes.

As a yarn crafter, I think a hanging organizer could be used to store yarn. The spaces make it easy to sort colors.

I found the image below on Pinterest. It is a clever organizer for board games. When I tried to follow the link, the post is not available. I felt the idea was good enough to share, although it is without attribution.


I hope these ideas are useful to my readers. I know I am going to adopt the broom closet ideas.
