If the shoe fits

When organizing the bedroom, one major obstacle is what to do with your shoes — especially when your apartment’s barely bigger than a shoebox.

When organizing the bedroom, one major obstacle is what to do with your shoes — especially when your apartment’s barely bigger than a shoebox. Meghan Cleary, shoe expert and author of “The Perfect Fit: What Your Shoes Say About You,” says organized doesn’t necessarily mean out-of-sight. “Shoes are so visual, they take cues from architecture and design. I like to display my shoes, because half the joy is to look at them.” Cleary flaunts her favorite heels as centerpieces on household surfaces. “There’s no one-size-fits-all solution,” she affirms.

If you’re not quite ready to put them on a pedestal, here are a few clever ways to store your shoes.
