Open up Your Pantry Storage

2 Materials
10 Minutes
I can't be the only mom out there that has more water bottles than people in the house. I finally have storage for all of those bottles and even a little left over for some other pantry items.
You can get these over door shoe organizers at any store; hardware, target, Walmart, etc. Due to what I was putting in it, I didn't want to risk going to the dollar store for this project. I wanted to make sure it was strong enough.
So this is your typical shoe organizer..but it fits all sorts of water bottles just as easy. The best part is, no tools needed, unless you are shorter then you may need a step stool to get to the top of the door. And this project is done in less that 10 minutes. You really can't beat that.
You can see that with a small step ladder the installation is a breeze. Simply hang it over your pantry door and start filling. The pockets are big enough for 32 oz bottles and tall enough that they don't hit each other.
I did use the bottom section of pockets for spice envelopes and chip clips. It helps keep those organized and even my boys know where the clips are...they still seem to not use them but they know where they are. Ha ha.

I did add some double sided tape to the bottom of the organizer after I trimmed it so it wouldn't interfere with the door knob. you will definitely want to use it as it keeps the organizer from hitting the door when you open and close the door.
Suggested materials:
  • Over door shoe organizer   (Walmart)
  • Double sided tape   (On hand)

      I'm sure there are a ton of other ways to use this same type of storage. I'm anxious to see if anyone else out there has some other ideas.

    Ive used my shoe bag to put snacks in for my 3 kids for the week so when they come home from school they can just grab it the other shoe bag i use for cleaning supplies so much better than digging under a croweded cabinet
