I came across this idea on Pinterest and love it! I thought I had seen every possible shoe organizing solution until this ‘do it yourself’ idea. I think I might try it in a few of my client’s closets!
This is what the pinner said about her solution: I am in the midst of reorganizing our master closet and am drowning in shoes. I have a few shoe organizers but none that are working well for me. I came across this ingenious idea for organizing your high heels using decorative crown molding!
I recently received a question from an addSpace follower. I am certain that many of you also have a similar concern so I wanted to go into detail and provide practical steps to help you declutter your life. This is what she asked:

As much as I try to discourage clients from using offsite storage to house unused clutter long term, self storage units and movable storage units can be lifesavers when you need to move out of your current home and need to house your belongings somewhere until you can move into your new home.
Below is a really helpful guide from NextDoor Storage for how long certain items can be safely stored, both in storage units and at home.
Solution: Store with style. Create or buy attractive storage containers suited for your specific items, whether it is old photos, CDs or your sunglass collection.

For trophy collections, Stagger ledge shelves over one wall and place all trophies on these shelves, up and out of the way!
Comment with your solutions for storing collectables. I am sure you have figured out a creative solution or tow!
Solution: Find the photos that you really love & frame them. For the others, ruthlessly toss the blurry, red eyed, duplicate & boring photos. After all, do you really need 2 photos of Uncle Ted on his houseboat? For the remaining photos, store them in a keepsake box that you can pull out & look into from time to time.
