OK, maybe you’ve all heard this one a billion times, but just in case:
If you store your shoes on shelves of any kind, you can increase your capacity by turning one half of each pair backwards. I wouldn’t go so far as to say it’ll double your space, but it goes a surprisingly long way. Clearly this little trick won’t work if you’re using over-the-door shoe racks. But for all sandals, shoes, and boots that are stored soles-down on a flat surface, I’ve long utilized this technique to make the most of my limited space.
