Doll Shoe Organization


"Oh no what a mess! Rapunzel do you need some help?"- Kaya.  Rapunzel-"Well Chewy is trying to help me but he keeps on nibbling Kit's shoe which isn't much help, ugh."

"Rapunzel, let's start gathering up all shoe and put them in pairs. We will have a race and see who can do this the fastest?"-Kaya  Rapunzel agreed with Kaya by shaking her head. "Kaya that sounds fun. How about you Chewy? Can you stop chewing Kit's shoe and help?" Chewy agreed and the three began to clean.

I wish the dolls would clean up after themselves but alas us humans must maintain order in the doll world. We are going to share with you a few ways we have tried and a new way that we think is a better way to organize your doll shoes. This is how we used to put away our shoes in a box but we out grew the box.

Then we tried a large under the bed tub didn't work that well because we out grew that also. Both of these two methods can work if you don't have that many doll shoes thou.

This is our newest method to stay organized and have shoes ready to go. 1. First get a tray like this one which can fit up to 12 pairs of sandals, 13 pairs of flats, or 15/16 pairs of boots.We found these trays at the dollar tree for a dollar.  We bought ten of them not knowing what to use them for at the time. Depending on how many shoes you have will depend on how many you buy.

2. Get cutting mats. You can get them at the dollar tree or the 99 store. There are two in each package. You will need these to separate your trays of shoes so they can stack on each other.
3. Separate your shoes the way you look for them. You can seperate by colors, types, or doll. We choose to seperate by types as you can see these are all sandals.

4. In order to conserve space we put our boots inside one another. You don't have to do this but you will be able to fit more boots in there if you do.

5. Put your roller skates and ice skates in a higher tray if you like because these guys take up alot of tray area.

6. Place your tray with shoes in it and then place your cutting board on top then repeat. Depending  on your shelving will depend on how high you can stack them. Put the boots on top because they stick out quite a bit.

7. This is the end result and all we need are the labels. We spent a total of $15 dollars for this redo. Try this or tell us what you have done to organize. We would love to hear it.

  5. Lovely! I started sorting with lidded trays with handles made for embroidery threads and filled them up in a jiffy so I bought one of those plastic drawers for organization to put my dolly shoes in. It's something like 3 feet high but it has all shallow drawers. I filled it up before I got out all my doll shoes! My dollies have way more shoes than I do!

  7. Great idea! I especially love the one with the boots putting the boots inside one another, although all doll boots I own are on the feet of their owner :)
