Vertical Shoe Storage

Whether you have a fabulous shoe collection, or just a lot of feet in your house, a shoe storage solution is vital to keep them all under control. Shoe racks come in lots of shapes and sizes, depending on how many shoes and what kind of space you have. But that’s not the only way to store shoes – an under bed shoe organizer can keep lots of pairs out of sight but in quick access, and over the door shoe storage can make great use of closet space. Clear shoe boxes can make for an elegant way to store shoes – use a drop front box for shoes you’d like to wear regularly, or a traditional box for longer-term shoe storage. How do you organize your footwear? You have shoes for work, shoes for play, shoes in the master closet, shoes in the mudroom. That’s why we offer so many different shoe storage ideas to help keep your shoes protected and well organized. Find some shoe storage ideas and inspiration at The Container Store!

I hung my shoe thing off the railing of the deck. Started my plants from seeds, so everything is still tiny. I planted basil, parsley, kale, collard greens, spinach, and a bunch of different leaf lettuces.
I got my shoe organizer from a local thrift store for $2. I have seen pictures on the internet of pockets that came unstitched, I guess from the weight of the soil. I didn't want that to happen to mine so I reinforced the stitches.

My garden is in shade except for the wall of the tool shed. This is the perfect solution for my kitchen herb growing needs. Just picked up the shoe holder today at the local thrift shop, so I think that makes it official. A bit worried about the mildew comment, but I think being in good sunlight should help with that.
