1. The first step to organizing your shoes is edit, edit, and edit again. Using the Kondo Method, if it doesn’t bring you joy, toss it or donate it.
2. Next, organize shoes by category, grouping like shoe types together, including flats, heels, smoking slippers and booties. Organize each category by color, from light to dark.
3. What do you need and how many? Drop front shoe boxes and clear shoe boxes work like a charm. Consider shoe boxes and boot boxes for each pair and use tall shoe boxes for heels and booties. They’re one of the best things EVER made out of plastic and uniform containers will transform the look of your closet.
4. Now, the fun part. Make a list and go shopping! Tough assignment, right?
5. Whether your style is open shelving or closed containers, organize your shoes by color, from light to dark. Point toes ‘in’ or ‘out’ to fit your needs (and shelves). If closed containers are for you, label the boxes to easily identify what’s inside.
