Shoe Storage

One of the things that I think is hardest for large families is the "clothes" situation. That extends to outerwear and footwear. Keeping your family clothed appropriately for all seasons means that you need to store that stuff. My salvation in that regard was utilizing several cube organizers designed for shoes. I labeled them for easy use. You can see pictures on this page, near the bottom.

Of course, one size does not fit all, and you may not be able to use shoe cubes which can take up a lot of wall space. Or you may simply want another solution. One of the Lotsofkids staffers, Melanie, came up with this great solution for her family. Her kitchen closet is used to store coats and other outside gear. Since there was unused space in the front of the closet, her husband mounted store bought wire shelving on the door. The shelving was deliberately mounted upside-down and at an angle, so that there would be a lip to hold the shoes in place. I absolutely love this idea, and think that it could also work well in basements and on regular walls! Another bit of ingenuity from a large-family mom and dad.
