An inexpensive shoe hanger can be made of a strip of tin, about 1/2 in. wide and as long as the space will permit. Cut notches along one edge and bend the tin and tack or screw it on a strip of board or to the inside of the closet door. The shoes are hung up by the heels with the toes down. - Contributed by C. R.
