Situation: We needed to store 46 pairs of shoes in the closet, plus scarves, hats, and bags.


Challenge: The closet had unused wall and ceiling space, but not enough rack, rod, or floor space for storing the shoes, scarves, hats, and purses.


Solution: Think vertical! We mounted a towel rod from the ceiling and hung 4 hanging shoe bags, plus a flip flop hanging device. In about 24 inches of horizontal space, we made room for 40 pairs of shoes and 6 pairs of flip flops. We also mounted hooks on the empty wall for scarves, hats, and purses.
