Shoes are a pain to store in a closet…let alone sandals. Sandals are flat (for the most part) so obviously they don’t take up a lot of room, yet they do because you can’t really store things on top of them since they need to be readily accessible. Many companies sell an over-the-door shoe holder or rack systems to install on your closet walls, but those contraptions can add up over time. There’s a super simple DIY hack to store sandals and all it takes is a wire hanger.
Here’s how to do it:
Step 1: Take a flimsy wire hanger (that’s easily bendable) and cut off the bottom part with a pair of pliers.
Step 2 (optional): You can choose to roll up the edges to create a small loop so the jagged part is out of the way.
Step 3: Using your hands and/or pliers bend both sides of the hanger to resemble the shape pictured above, like a mirrored letter J.
Step 4 (optional): You can decorate the hanger to make them look a little more fancy or leave them bare! It’s totally up to you.
And now you’re set! No more spending money on expensive shoe holders and racks.
