DIY Shoebox Organizer

I admit, I am lazy. Household chores are not for me. My mother (and husband) know/s that. But it doesn’t mean that a lazy person cannot be organized. I am very particular of organizing stuff from documents down to hair trinkets, except the times when I really really get lazy heehee!

Now let’s talk about shoes…. Imagine having 2 girls and a lady in a household. Expect having dozens of pairs stored in one corner of the house. Masakit sa mata. That one particular corner obviously needs to be organized, without excuses. So I bought two pieces of Amazing Shoe Rack from Lazada. It’s amazingly beautiful and neat but it can’t hold the weight of  all the shoes that we have. I had to ignore one corner of our house for sometime after one rack collapsed. Until I chanced upon a fellow mommy blogger’s post on FB where she used shoe boxes as her shoe organizer. I had to have that and yes I did a couple of weeks later.


The shoe box materials come unfolded. At first, I had a hard time figuring out how to assemble the lid but when I got the hang of it, I finished assembling two dozens of boxes in less than an hour.


Instead of putting labels on each box, I made peep holes to easily see the shoes through and that could also serve as an exhaust.


 I am so happy on the outcome!! So organized and tidy. Since my 5 year old daughter’s shoes are of small sizes, I was able to put 3 pairs in one box, and those of my 9 year old daughter’s were able to fit 2 pairs in one box, those that were matching shoes (of my girls) were also kept in one box, 2 pairs per box. I was only able to keep 11 pairs of shoes for myself and kept the ones left in my old shoe rack. Good thing I ordered the bigger size of boxes meant for men’s shoes. With the amount of shoes left unboxed, I definitely need another 2 dozens of materials.



We have now enough space going out from this corner of our house to the balcony.
