16 Nifty Shoe Storage Ideas That Don’t Cost a Bomb

You know that I’m willing to kill just for my shoes because you all know what they say about shoes, they make (or break) you. 

Based from experience, I always look at a person’s shoes first.

Having a neat outfit is good, but I think having nice shoes that compliment what you’re wearing is better. Don’t judge me, that’s just how I roll. Bahaha!

So moving on, since shoes are the reason for my existence, so I need to make sure they’re always clean, safe and pampered. Lol, just like a baby!

Here are some nifty shoe storage ideas that don’t cost a bomb:

Shoes are always bulky and not easily hidden.  I adore this idea of keeping shoes in a blanket box.  It looks chic in a bedroom, is practical and can be any colour you like!

Walls are really essential when your shoes seem to be a lot. Hahaha. This one is cool because it’s beside a window. Bye bye bacteria for your shoesies too!


If you have some shoes or flip flops that you’re not really using that much (but you don’t wanna throw them away), stow them inside these sturdy yet cheap plastic cabinets.

Or put ’em in corner cubby boxes.


Or stick some huge, painted PVC pipes in a corner wall because they make a great reservoir for shoes!


Also, you could pile up some wooden planks for a makeshift corner shoe rack.


If it’s summer, hang your winter boots using some cheap hangers with clamps. You could also store them inside a vacant cabinet.
