You know those hanging shoe organizers? Have you ever though of using them outside the bedroom closet? As it turns out, there are tons of uses for these miraculous storage tools. Here are 14 of the best.
1. Herb Gardening
Find a shoe organizer made of heavy, breathable fabric like canvas, and you can plant your own hanging herb garden on your porch or patio.
2. Small Toys
Got more small toys and pieces than you can shake a stick at? Use an over-door shoe hanger to keep them all organized. This is especially great for kids who collect action figures!
3. Sewing Supplies
If you sew, you probably have a lot of notions hanging around — and maybe not enough space to store them all. Keep them organized and out of the way with a shoe hanger.
Speaking of sewing, fabric scraps might be taking over your life — and your sewing space. Those useable pieces will take up a lot less room in a shoe organizer, and if you use a clear plastic one, you’ll be able to see everything at once.
