How to keep kids shoes organized. And yours!

I don’t know about you but I’ve gone through so many shoe racks.  They always break. A.L.W.A.Y.S!  So I was browsing through Wayfair and came across this great article.  As a family of 5 and with all the different shoes we have and as the seasons change, I was getting very tired of the mess and stepping and tripping over all the shoes.  I mean, seriously.  Have a look!

But some seriously, here are some easy steps to get more organized. Donate, up cycle, toss whatever you don’t need. Get rid of the clutter. Find the right style for your home.  You can go with the tiered approach like I did, but Wayfair has beautiful baskets to help you get organized, alternative products that you can use as a shoe rack and really pretty up your area that needs sprucing up.  


After reading the article, I decided enough was enough and figured I’d take the 4 tier approach and there were lots of great suggestions for organizing shoes. I bought the Homestar 4-tier Shoe Rack and I LOVE IT!  It was easy to put together and the kids each have a spot to put their shoes.  I’m still “training” my husband but I am no longer tripping over our shoes and the quality and look of the Homestar is perfect.  I seriously love it.  Each child has their own cubby and they are learning to put their shoes away and help keep our home clean.  We are getting more organized, one room and area at a time.

    Looks good! Having it is only the first step, the training seems like the hardest part ha ha! My kids still need a reminder to put their shoes away, not just leave them as they land on entering the house. Now if only we had a place for school backpacks…

      This rack! It would fit in the cubby πŸ™‚

  2. Debbie Davidov | 22nd Aug 17

    We need so many shoe racks! Our front closet also is like a tornado hit!!

  3. Debbie Davidov | 22nd Aug 17

    I love that we can give each family member their own spot! Cause we all need our own shoe space!

  4. Marlene J | 22nd Aug 17

    They have so many unique furniture items – I love

  5. kathy downey | 22nd Aug 17

    I love the tip for the Tiered Approach,i need help !

  6. kathy downey | 22nd Aug 17

    What i love about Wayfair is that over $75 ship FREE,and for those that don’t qualify for free shipping, it’s just $8.99!

  7. Alison Braidwood | 22nd Aug 17

    I think giving everyone their own drop spot will help control the all-over-the-houseness of it all.

  8. Alison Braidwood | 22nd Aug 17

    I love that their prices are reasonable, and that they now have a Canadian site.

  9. Amy Dell | 22nd Aug 17

    I’m had a bit of a chuckle with the tip to keep shoes down to six per person/ per season. I can’t do that in the summer. Giving everyone a drop zone is another tip I think we could try.

  10. Amy Dell | 22nd Aug 17

    I love wayfair because I do about 90% of my shopping online. They have a large variety of products to choose from and lots of stylish options for most decor types

  11. Jonnie | 22nd Aug 17

    I commented on the facebook post with a pic and my favorite tip is to give each member their own spot.

  12. Jonnie | 22nd Aug 17

    I love Wayfair for their huge selection and that they are Canada-friendly!

  13. kristen visser | 22nd Aug 17

    I love their fabulous deals and selection of products! I got my area rug from Wayfair and couldn’t be more happier with our purchase

  14. Krista Embertson | 22nd Aug 17

    I love Wayfair! They have so many incredible deals on things I have never seen before and fits every single budget. Most of all that they ship to Canada. Wayfair is inspirational!

  15. Bailey Wilson | 22nd Aug 17

    I love the idea of stacking bins. It makes so much sense and takes up so much less space!

  16. Bailey Wilson | 22nd Aug 17

    I love the low free shipping. It wouldn’t take me long to get there!

  17. Sarah Pralet | 22nd Aug 17

    Great improvement & habit to teach the kids. Early in married life I threw my husbands shoes out into the road as he never put them away, he does now! Grin

    • Mama Ash | 22nd Aug 17

      Hahahahaha! He learned quickly, I bet πŸ˜‰

  18. Florence Cochrane | 22nd Aug 17

    I love all the items for organizing in the home.

  19. Catherine Robichaud | 22nd Aug 17

    My favourite tip is Take the Tiered Approach. They had some really nice tiered shoe racks on there.

  20. Debbie White Beattie | 22nd Aug 17

    I love the uniqueness of a lot of their products, you can’t find some of their stuff anywhere else.

  21. Debbie White Beattie | 22nd Aug 17

    The tip I liked the most is “Give Every Family Member a Drop Spot” because this way everyone is responsible for putting their stuff away and they always know where to find their stuff.

  22. Linda smyth | 22nd Aug 17

    K love the tiered approach!
    Great solutions Wayfair!
    Great and timely blog too. Left a photo of my disasterπŸ˜‚

  23. Wanda Tracey | 22nd Aug 17

    Their deals and products are amazing.I love their tip of using a vintage-style bottle-drying rack for loafers and mules.I would have never thought of that and it looks great.

  24. Wanda Tracey | 22nd Aug 17

    I love Wayfair for their great selection of products and styles.There is definitely something for everyone’s taste and for every room in the house.They have beautiful things! πŸ™‚

  33. ivy pluchinsky | 24th Aug 17

    I love all the unique items that Wayfair has!

  34. nicky | 24th Aug 17

    My favourite tip is to manage the overflow. So useful to have extra spots to store shoes that are not often used, so they don’t really have to live at the front door.

  35. Kim Tanti | 25th Aug 17

    I love the style Wayfair carries. Clean looking.

  36. Debbie F | 25th Aug 17

  47. Hailey | 29th Aug 17

    I have been looking for a solution to the show problem forever! I’ve tried shoe closets, walls, trays, everything you name it. My hubby loves shoes! He has enough to wear a differebt pair everyday for a month! He wears a different pair all the time and recently he got into sandals! Ugh… ! This would help me out immensely!

  48. Lisa Neutel | 29th Aug 17

    I love the style of products wayfair offers and I love that I can shop from home

  49. CL Chin | 30th Aug 17

    It’s great to see another retailer that will ship to Canada and the range of products is quite vast!

  50. Jackie M | 30th Aug 17

    I love Wayfair for the various home products they have and love the styles and brands they carry

  51. jan | 31st Aug 17

    I like everyone getting a drop spot. Sort through your own mess. LOL.

  52. jan | 31st Aug 17

    I love the variety that Wayfair holds.

  53. Krista M | 31st Aug 17

    I like the tip to think outside the (shoe) box! There are so many beautiful furniture pieces out there that one would never think to use for shoe storage! I will look at housewares with a whole new perspective now.

  54. Jenn | 31st Aug 17

    I love that they have a huge selection. One of my mom’s faucet broke earlier this year and she really wanted one that looked just like it, so we searched high and low but didn’t find it until I stumbled upon Wayfair. They had one just like what we were looking for!

  55. nicolthepickle | 31st Aug 17

    I love that they have fun styles. I was just browsing their kitchen chairs this evening.

  56. Lisa | 2nd Sep 17
