Place them in buckets.

Let your flip flops breathe using a bucket for storage. Place them near the main door so you can change into your outside slippers from your home slippers as soon as you enter the house and vice versa. Label each bucket.

Use file drawers.

Office file drawers can double as storage for your slippers too. Each member of the family gets at least one drawer each to keep their slippers – just write their name on the label box.

Use the armoire or console table by the foyer.

Like a secret storage, the armoire or console table by the foyer can be used to keep your flip-flops near the main entrance of the house. You don’t have to worry about losing them, plus, it’s hidden from plain sight.

Hang your pairs.

Storing these flip flops are made fun and creative with the help of small hooks and pieces of ribbons. Affix 3M adhesive hooks onto a flat surface, then tie with sturdy ribbons. Hang your pairs and voila! An instant accent wall.

Raise them up.

Don’t worry about them eating up too much space in your closet. Put your pairs on in this clever contraption and you’ll save up half the space for footwear.

Use a tray.

Prepare the pair you’ll be using for the day by placing it on a serving tray – get an unused one from your kitchen – under the bed or night table.
