Shoes are the number one taking up of space “clothing” item. Lovers of shoes have the most issues as they don’t keep a certain pair till they need to be thrown out. No, they buy a new pair or two nearly every week. At that rate that’s 52 pairs in just one year!! What to do with all those shoes?! Some innovative inventions make it fashionable to have shoes in the most random places in your house. No longer are they restricted to the closet or under the bed. Buzzfeed.com came up with 33 ingenious ways to store your shoes. I think the most interesting way was repurposing wine crates. Those crates can be positioned anywhere!

Either way there is hope out there for people who have soooo many shoes and limited space to put them. Check it out to find out new ways to spruce up an old idea of organizing shoes!
