Make your Own Shoe Box Organizer

Updated on November 13, 2016

Shoe Boxes Can Function in Many Ways

Do not throw your shoe boxes. Yes, you have heard me right. I will say it again. Do not throw your shoe boxes, will it be enough? Anyways, if you are lousy at organizing, save shoe boxes as organizers. They are cheap and you are being resourceful when using these boxes. Using these boxes also mean we are saving our environment and our dear planet.

Shoe Boxes comes in all different sizes but they have to be rectangular. They vary in height and width which makes them a good source for storing cute items and memorabilia or even more than that.

Shoe boxes are good as organizers because they can store these items and at one glance, you can easily see what is inside, assuming there is a label on it, of course. These shoe boxes organizes the place because these small items and things which makes the place much more messier are kept inside these little or rather big shoe boxes.

Shoe boxes can be designed according to your preference. You can manipulate it to make it more personalized and also to be more functional that it is already. Of course, shoe boxes are cheaper or free to have.

When I was younger, I used to wrapped these boxes so as they look a lot neat and nicer. I placed all my memorabilia in there like souvenirs, cards, invitations, even ballpoint pen that I have collected and used already. These shoe boxes are great for these kinds of items.

All-in-one Organizer

I made this one simply because my closet is cluttered and so is my desk. I gathered all containers and boxers I could find, wrap it and stick them all together. These are not shoe boxes but this is a great idea as all from boxes still.

Shoe boxes can be made into organizers. They cannot only organize our shoes but they could actually organize small little items and trinkets in our house or rooms. These can be placed in one shoe box or have items of the same placed in one shoe box.

I place all my souvenir items and pieces inside my shoe box. I also have another one for my cards and letters and I have another one for me gift tags and more.

You can design your own shoe boxes so that they can also be decorated while they are organizing.

The materials needed are:

shoe box

sticky tape



wrapper (colorful design)

2. Cut along the edges that are in excess.

3. Glue or paste or even use a sticky tape to stick the wrapping paper over the box.

4. Once wrapped, label at the top side /right side, where ever is most accessible to you.

      Thank you for the great organizing ideas using shoe boxes. I am always trying to think of creative ways to use items around my house to organize instead o buying more containers. I like the idea of jazzing up the boxes too:)
