If you’re a fan of Real Simple you know we love storing things other than shoes in a hanging shoe organizer. Those pockets are perfectly sized for so many things, including cleaning supplies!
Here’s the trick for making it work in your utility closet, garage, basement or laundry room: you can actually cut a fabric shoe organizer in half to make it fit your space. And it’s easy to add a couple of nails, or a sturdy curtain rod to hang the organizer on depending on what you have available.
Just remember to store anything with a high leak potential toward the bottom of the organizer, and anything that needs to be kept out of little hands’ reach on the top row.
