Using Cubbies to Organize Shoes and Accessories

Guide to the best cubbies

Cubbies can be either a bunch of cubes stacked together or a bench with cubbies. I love the benches in an entry way where they doubles a place to sit and a place to store handbags and shoes. Use smaller cubbies in closets to store smaller items like handbags and clutches.
