Car Organizer using a Shoe Organizer

Tweet This
I was browsing around the Dollar Store one day and I found this hanging organizer.

It could be a shoe organizer or it could be
used for whatever
 (this little picture on it has gift wrap supplies in it).

Shoe organizers are so nice. Doesn't have to be for shoes only.
Their possibilities are endless...

So I thought this would be perfect to use in my car! So many things you have to pack around when you have little ones.

I've been looking around for something to organize my car but haven't found anything that I liked unless I wanted to spend $25 or more.

I thought this will do fine for now.
 I did want to add some embellishments but since this one will go in hubby's car
he vetoed on making it cutsie.
Oh well at least my wipes are cute ;) !

Linking up...


  1. I LOVE this! My car is a disaster area. Between a baby and a dog, it's hard to keep it clean and organized. This is an awesome idea! I may even make two--one for Emma and one for Max's fetch toys. ;)

    Thanks for the awesome tip!

  2. This is a great idea. I will have to go and look for one myself.

  3. Perfect! Looks great. I'm used to seeing the full length (door size) shoe organizers.
    Thanks for linking this up to my Organizing Mission link party.

  4. I did think that most shoe organizers are too long. And short ones may be hard to find. I wonder if you could trim one down then rehem it? I'll have to see. I still want to do once for my car and embellish it. I'll revisit this post when I do so.

  5. I ♥ this idea! Cheap, organized, easy. And I get to do more wipe covers. Yay! ;)

  6. this rocks my socks off! my car doesn't have back seat pockets and this is such a good idea! Thank you so much!
    Visiting from TCB!

  7. What a fantastic idea! My car so needs this!!!

  8. This is neat! Another great use for those shoes holders!

    I am having a giveaway on my blog from Cmmoca's handmade shop. $27 store credit to win a shopping organizer. A neat place to note doew your To list and organize your coupons. check it out!

  9. I came by to look at this from The Thrifty Home. GREAT IDEA. I drive grandkids a lot, and I like that I can take this in or out. I guess I am adding the dollar store to my (already long) list for tomorrow/Friday :0) Thank you for sharing.

  10. Um...WOW! Where has this been my whole life?! Thank you!!!

  11. Brilliant! I have these organizer from the dollar store, but never thought to use them in the car! What a fantastic idea!

  12. This is a really great idea and for $1 who couldn't use a little more organization space in the car

    (sorry about the previous comment, don't know what happend lol)

  16. Great idea~
    I just started a linky party this past Tuesday. It was a great success with over 50 link ups! I would love it if you would participate next week! It's called $10 Tuesdays and it's for things that cost less than $10 and take 20-30 mins (ish) to complete. I love inexpensive and quick projects and I'm guessing others will too ;) Thanks so much for considering.
    PS. I'm GIVING away 50 button pony tailers this month! Come visit and claim yours ;)

  17. You're so innovative!! I would have never thought of this :)

    Thanks for linking up to Your Whims Wednesday!!

  18. Good idea, CHEAPER than the costly car organizers and works as well.

  19. What a GREAT idea! Thanks so much for sharing it at Inspiration Friday last weekend! :-)

  20. Wish I was that organized when my boys were small...I was forever losing stuff.

  21. Amazing idea! Heading to the dollar store now...

    I'm featuring you as a Friday Fav at naptimecrafters.blogspot.com

    See you at the party on Friday:)

  22. AWWWWSOOOMMME! I SO need something like this. For a dollar I love it even more! Thanks for sharing:)

  23. Oh My Goodness! I NEED this SO BAD!

    Thank you for the idea!!!!!!!!


  24. GENIUS! I have GOT to run over to the Dollar store now! Thank you SOOO much! (I'm sure my husband will thank you a million times over...)This is awesome!


  25. Awesome idea! Which Dollar store?

  26. Dollar Tree is the store that I got it at.

  27. What a great idea! Thanks for linking up to Weekend Warrior. :)


  28. Awesome find! Saw this on Pinterest and am loving that it came from the dollar store! Getting 2 of these for our upcoming 8hr drive to the beach!

  29. this idea is great, I found one at my local dollar store and it was just the ticket to hang up our Wii accessories. We have a tv armoir and put it on the outside front of the doors ( we don't close them). They all fit great, thanks for the idea:)

  30. Oh my!! What a super great idea!! I am soooo doing this for the new boyfriend that has a son.

  31. Wow, this is great! I just have one question. Does the organizer lay flat against the seat? I had an organizer for my car & I had to take it out because it hung away from the seat back. My girls were constantly knocking it loose. I could really use one is my van!

  32. Cori

    It sticks out just a little in my car depending how the seat is leaning. I wondered this too. One solution you could use velcro on the back.

    Gotta tell everybody that I love this in my car. Already used a few times for wiping a sticky mess, when I needed sunscreen unexpectedly, or forgot to refill my diaper bag with some diapers.

    Total lifesaver!

  33. I linked to your tutorial on my blog:

    I wish I would have made my car organizer sooner (still need to). I don't carry my diaper bag with me when I drop my son off at day care but thanks to having to pick him up unexpectedly (something my hubby does), I had no diapers with me when I took him to the pediatrician. I need to do this ASAP!

  34. Great idea. I might just have to do this.

  35. just wanted to say that sunscreen is degraded by heat/sunlight, so keeping sunsreen in hot car may not be best idea as it will reduce its efficacy.

  36. Less hustle travel and less annoying stuffs around you. That was the benefit of having an organizer inside your car.

  37. Is this from dollar tree or another dollar store? Love it but can't find it this small

  38. I love this!!!! But I can't find them anywhere. I've been to six dollar trees. Ugh!!!

  39. Whether you do it yourself or take your car to a professional shop to be detailed, having the car clean, shiny, and smelling great will go a long way to lifting your spirits and giving you incentive to organize your car and keep it that way.

  40. Love this idea and your blog!
