Default Shoe (and other) Organizer!

My linen/medical supply/paper goods closet was a smoking mess, couldn't find anything. Realized that a shoe organizer would fit nicely inside the door. Found a 26 pocket clear vinyl one at Bed Bath & Beyond for $15, perfect.

All urgent first aid and illness stuff went in the pockets. Got a mess of clear shoe boxes to put essential oils, toothbrushes, floss and such in, and labeled each with contents, neatly stacked.

I found stuff I didn't know I owned, including 2 large bottles of my fave shampoo that's no longer available, ditto 2 packs my fave hair ties. Can cross toothbrushes off the lifetime list, got more of them than we've got teeth, if you count the dog. Apparently I have a vet wrap fetish.....

Whole project took two days, closet is now a vision of beauty, and I can ~find~ everything!

Is this one of those vertical shoe organizers? I have a cheap one from like dollar general hanging on the inside of the door in the bathroom for holding my shower cap, some different tubes of ointments ( triple antibiotic, anti-itch,etc), some hair gel tubes that sort of stuff.
I have some clear plastic containers big enough to hold maybe 4 shoe boxes. I have those filled with extra firstaid supplies ( gauze pads, alcohol,ace bandages,etc).

I, too, have a lot of vet wrap. Fuzzy Hubby has commented before on it. He will enjoy the "fetish" reference.



Pictures, or it didn't happen. I need guidance here.

Totally iPad inept here, forget pictures, just gonna have to fantasize, ladies! Btw, I have another shoe thing on a garage door, holds all my garden twines, tape clips...even a pair of shoes!

Drive, my doctor loved my hot pink vet wrap/half a panty liner bandage on my raccoon bite.

Wanted to thank you for the giggle, Wojapi, but for some reason I am only allowed to thank one person a day on TBM. I dunno why, it just takes me to the "You are not allowed on this page" page every time I try.

So....Thank you!
