Not sure where to start when it comes to organizing your shoe collection? Karen Windholz, the professional organizer behind Sort Toss Repeat, recommends going in with a game plan. "Shoes are most accessible when they are organized on shelves by color and type," she says. "Often, I recommend investing in clear stackable shoe boxes to maximize the vertical space in closets. Clear boxes allow you to see each pair of shoes easily."

But if closet space is limited, there are plenty of other options — here are some of our favorites available at Target.
