Workshop Shoe Bag Storage Solution

By: Joe Truini

Hanging shoe bags work great for storing tubes of caulking, cans of spray paint, and other items in your garage or workshop. Clear plastic bags allow you to easily see the items that are stored. Since full bags can be heavy, be sure to provide plenty of support when hanging them on the wall. Watch this video to find out how.

    Hi Elaine, I love your idea of using the shoe bag on the back of a hall-closet door; very clever. I suppose putting one on the back of a bedroom-closet door would be useful, too, for storing socks, undergarments, even shoes! Thanks for writing and good luck!–Joe T.

    Great Idea, I use one in my hall closet for gloves, hats and scarves.

    Hey Craig, glad you liked the shoe-bag tip. It really is a simple, effective way to store lots of items in a relatively small space. You might be interested to know that we taped a similar Simple Solution segment, showing how to use a shoe bag in a kitchen pantry to organize cleaning supplies. Thanks for writing and good luck!–Joe T.

    Nice tip, I had not thought of using shoes bags in that way.
