Closet Boot Storage ~ Day #4

The other day after posting pictures of my closet many of you asked about my boot hangers.  You can see them at the back of the closet here:

This is one area where those wire type shelves come in super handy.  All I use are regular pant hangers.  They have a fuzzy strip in the inside so I haven’t noticed them leaving any markings on my boots at all.  So easy and fairly inexpensive compared to products specifically made for boot storage.  In this case this space was really unusable before because of the heating vent you see.  I didn’t want to cover it up so hanging up my books lets me utilize and maximize this space.

It all comes down to solving problems doesn’t it.  I needed somewhere for my boots and sometimes it’s just a matter of getting creative with the space to make it work.  Don’t be afraid to think outside the box and use what you already have.

Also because I’ve made this my boot area, it provides me with a limit to how many pairs of boots I can own.  If I don’t have a defined space, I may be tempted to over purchase leading to an overstuffed closet.

Now I know that if I buy a new pair of boots, I will have to make room for them by getting rid of pair.  It really changes the way I look at things when I shop which is so super helpful.

Have a great day everyone!

    Great idea. Your closet is set up a lot like mine. I even keep my jewelry in there like you!

    Lovely! So easy, too. How much are the hangers? I will have to purchase just one, as I have only one pair of boots but this gets me thinking about purchasing another pair, as mine are black and I will be needing a brown pair. Of course, in Canada they keep your feet toasty. Here in the south they are primarily for fashion! You would be surprised how many of us southerners even wear our Ugs when the temps are in the 50’s or even 60’s just because! They are super comfy!!

    I use this method for hanging my boots (will line the inside of my hangers though) but I have one pair of boots that has a higher top at the front than the back so these don’t work. Any ideas????

    Not only a brilliant use of space, but your boots must dry quickly too!
