Introduction: Closet Hacks - Cheap Shoe Storage in 1 Minute
Like most college-age females of today, I own a LOT of shoes. Also, like most college-age females, I don't have a lot of extra storage space to keep all those shoes around, and eventually I get tired of having to rummage through a pile of shoes to find the match.
Inspiration struck me when I was cleaning out all the wire hangers out of our closet in favor of more-study plastic ones.
All you need is a simple wire hanger.

Step 1: Bend It!
First, take your hanger and bend it into a boomerang-like shape.
Step 2: Loop It!
Pull up the bottom part of the hanger at the center fold and tuck it behind the hook of the hanger as shown.
This reinforces the hanger so that it can support HEAVY SHOES!
Step 3: More Bending!
Bend each of arm of the boomerang shaped hanger up towards the hook, creating little rounded hooks of their own.
Step 4: Hang 'Em High!
Simply slide your shoes onto the rounded hooks, and hang them wherever they need to be accessible, yet not in the way!
They fit perfectly on a hook beside the door, on a coat rack, and ESPECIALLY in closets!
