$5 Shoe Rack – Priceless Organization in the Kitchen

There never seems to be enough room in the kitchen and don’t we all have at least one junk drawer in the house? If you suffer from, “Don’t know what to do with the grocery bags” syndrome, the perfect solution is about to present itself. Next time you are hitting up the local discount retail store, check out the home organization aisle and look at the over-the-door shoe racks. You will find shoe racks ranging from $5 to $20 and varying in design. You may even find one that fits your decor. The most important aspect of your shoe rack is going to be the kind that hook over your door. Once you have selected your over-the-door shoe rack, you are ready to start cleaning out your junk drawers!



Forget about shoes for the moment and let’s see how many other uses we can find for your average over-the-door shoe rack for your kitchen. The only kicker for the system is you must have access to a door; garage door, panty door, kitchen door, something that has a door. If you do have access to one, you are good to go!
