My husband raises his eyebrows when he sees a shoe bag in my shopping cart. He has good reason to, since I put them all over the house, on the backs of doors, in my quest for organization. I’m running out of doors though, so he can rest easy. I just love how functional they are with all the little pockets to store and sort little things so you can easily see everything, instead of things being buried in a cabinet or closet or bin.

Here are some of the ways I use these bags in my home:

I use one in my daughter’s room on the back of her door to sort out hairbows by color and to sort out ribbons and barrettes.

 I also use one in my closet and our hall coat closet for their intended purpose, shoes.

 On my pantry door, I use one to organize some of the little things that can get lost elsewhere and some of the kids’ snacks so they’re easy to get to.

This narrow shoe bag works great in my coat closet, as it gives each family member 2 cubbies for their hats and gloves, and I’ve labeled each divider with a Sharpie marker so everyone knows where to put their belongings.

A shoe bag on the back of a laundry or utility room door is handy for holding cleaning or laundry supplies so they are visible and organized.

If you have small children though, make sure any poisonous items are safely put away, and out of their reach.

If I haven’t already made the case for these miracle organizers, they can also be used to sort:

small toys

art or craft supplies

small clothing items

office supplies

shampoos, soaps, toothbrushes…
