The humble shoe caddy is an amazing way to keep your shoes organized and out of the way, saving a lot of space. The fact that you can hang it on the inside of a door also means it's pretty much out of the way until you need it. While it's undoubtedly a brilliant storage solution for shoes, with a little imagination it can be turned into storage for a wide variety of other items. Check out the list below to see why a shoe caddy is an absolute must-have for anyone looking to maximize their space (especially those living in small spaces to begin with).
1. Hydration is awesome, but all those bottles cluttering up your kitchen is definitely not. Shoe caddy to the rescue!
2. Bring the outdoors inside by turning a caddy into a vertical planter. Learn how here.

4. Stash your snacks or produce in a transparent caddy to keep track of what you have more clearly.
5. A small closet space can be converted into a mini-office, and the hanging shoe caddy helps add a lot of extra organizational space.
6. Craft supplies for kids tend to get disorganized pretty easily. Make cleanup quick and easy by using a caddy.
7. With winter in full swing, you've probably got a lot of scarves hanging around with no real place to be. Keep them organized and out of the way.
