Over-the-door shoe pockets aren’t just for footwear! They come in several materials, including clear plastic for when you want to see what’s inside and cloth for when you don’t. With all those gorgeous pockets, and the ability to fit them in such a slim and underutilized area, shoe pockets are an organizing superstar. Discover the best ways to manage their star power.
1. Place them on the inside of your utility closet and fill with cleaning supplies such as cleaning sprays, dusters, rags, and latex gloves.
2. They make excellent art supply organizers—markers, colored pencils, brushes, and more, all lined up and ready to use.

5. Roll scarves and tuck them into pockets. This is especially great for thin scarves that would otherwise easily snag.
