5 Days of Organizing Your Homeschool Supplies: Over the Door Shoe Pockets

It’s back to school time! Is your house being overrun by all those school supplies and books? Join me all this week for 5 Days of Organizing Homeschool Supplies.

Today let’s tackle supplies overflow! What do you do with all of those extra supplies? I’ve seen this idea in a lot of place, but here’s how we use it in our school room.

Over the Door Shoe Pockets


I bought mine for around $20 at Bed, Bath, & Beyond but you can find over the door shoe pockets at a lot of stores. I purposely went for one that is made of canvas and stitched well. I knew I’d be storing a lot in it and wanted it to last.

I keep our over the door shoe pockets on the inside of our closet door. I keep extra crayons, glue sticks, and other craft supplies that we do not get into as often but still want easily accessible. I keep it on the inside of the door because little Jacob likes to get into things. If you want it more easily accessible, you could put it on the back of the door to your school room or the front of a closet door.

Have you used these over the door shoe pockets? Share in the comments! Leave us a link and show us some pics!

    Shoe pockets are one of my favorite ways to organize!

  2. I like that idea. I hadn’t thought about using it for school supplies.

  3. I’ve not used over the door type storage because I don’t like it wiggling on the door. Anyone have a recommendation for attaching the bottom of it to the door?
