1. Get Rid Of Shoe Clutter FOREVER

When I see all the shoes piled up at the front door it immediately puts me in a bad mood.

And don’t even mention the shoes randomly scattered on the living room carpet or in the middle of the kitchen.

But there is something I can do about it RIGHT NOW.

If you have a small entryway—like I do—then you can save space AND minimize the shoe clutter by using a designated shoe bin to catch all the shoes.

And preferably a bin on wheels, like this one.

When your shoe storage is on wheels you can easily move it out of the way when needed. So simple!

If you’d rather DIY your own rolling shoe storage bin, just find a sturdy crate and add on casters. Or try out these easy DIY shoe storage benches that can be completed in just one afternoon!

Lucky for me, I already have this Ikea cart on hand, and it’s also great for organizing shoes on different levels so that my nicer shoes don’t get dirty being buried with my everyday outdoor shoes.

Now that you have your shoe solutions—MAKE IT A PRIORITY to use these to store your shoes! It may take some time for your family to unlearn bad habits, but being a stickler on this for a short period of time WILL change behavior in the long run.
