Whether you’re in a dorm, an apartment, or a multi-child household you’ve probably found out what happens when your shoes aren’t organized.

There’s no excuse not to pick up a shoe rack—they are easy to assemble, they’re affordable, and they can fit into just about any room in your house without drawing much attention.
