Even at home your shoes can take up way too much space in your closet. And your floor, for that matter. It’s easy to have too many shoes and have nowhere to put them. When you’re out in your RV, this problem becomes much more apparent. Fortunately, there are shoe storage solutions that can help you to save space and keep your shoes organized.
The Classic Shoe Organizer
The most straightforward way to organize shoes is to simply purchase a plastic hanging shoe organizer and toss it over a door or into your closet space. There’s a reason why these products are popular: they work. And it doesn’t matter whether you’re at home or on the road in your RV. They’ll still keep your shoes organized and off the floor.
Over the Door Hooks
Another great way to solve your shoe crisis is to buy over the door hooks. You can then hang a shoe from each hook where they’ll not be underfoot until you’re ready to put them onto your foot.
Install Wall Shelves
Try installing some simple wall shelves anywhere in your RV where there’s some free wall space. If you want to put shoes on these shelves, try positioning them near the door to the outside so that your shoes have a home right near the entrance/exit.
Use the Space Under the Stairs
This one is a bit conditional, but if your RV has steps inside leading up to the bedroom (or anywhere else, for that matter), why not stuff some of your shoes into the hollows under each step? That space isn’t being used for anything else after all. If you really want to get creative and have a DIY streak, you can even convert steps into hidden chests. Just cut off the top of each step and reattach it with hinges. These secret compartments can then be filled with whatever you need to stow away, shoes included.
When All Else Fails, Downsize
While this may not be the most popular suggestion, it might be best if you simply downsize how many shoes you have. If you’ve employed space saving techniques for your shoe collection and you’re still tripping over piles of sneakers, take a good look at the number of pairs that you have and assess which ones you rarely, if ever, wear. If you’ve got some shoes that you’ve never bothered to put on during your entire trip, it might be time to say goodbye.
