Going shoe crazy!!!!!!!

ok, so we are a family of 7. You can only imagine how many pairs of shes here. I have bought shoe racks and hanging things for shoes. Does not work. Still many pairs all over. DH and Ds are size 13 so they don't even fit in the little cubby. What to you do with the family's shoes? Help...

  • I have the same problem. I try to put them on the stairs when I find them in the living room, it gets them out of the way for a little while. There are 12 steps, holds a lot of shoes!

  • I know that this might not help much but I thought I'd throw in what we do.  My hub is a size 13 so we keep all of his shoe boxes and stack them up on shelves.  Sorry!  I wish I could help more!

  • Well with our stairs, it's the first thing you see from the front door. I don't want that. Maybe I can get a bin for everyone and they can throw there shoes in. I don't know I'm tired of the shoe clutter.

  • Maybe you could consider something like these storage benches? They're similar to what we have, and work great--especially in the morning getting ready for school and being able to find matching pairs!! LOL
