Alternative to OTD shoe holder

My Dollar Tree didn't have the shoe holder. I haven't checked another dollar store, but I will. Are there any other alternatives that will work? I don't want to spend a lot on it since it will only be used for the cruise. Anyone know how much they are at Walmart or Target?

I've seen them for $5 and $8 at Target. Haven't looked at Walmart.

Ummm...this might not be your only cruise. Some of us got addicted.

Honestly I never use the shoe holder and wouldn't consider it a big loss if I couldn't find one. Tink of exactly what you would out in it, and other ways to keep it stored. I use lots of little make up cases (the free ones I get at Clinique bonus days) to keep everyone's bathroom items tidy, and the little drawers in the cabin for other small items.

There are tons of shelves, drawers and cupboards to store things in. I found the over the door organizer made the already narrow stateroom entryway even more narrow. I think I only brought it on my first cruise. However, I have only ever had 2 people in my cabin. If I had two kids also, I might feel differently.

I bought one for our first cruise at Big Lots for about $8, took it & never used it. We found more than enough drawer space for the 3 of us.
Others really like using them but I wouldn't stress yourself out or spend a lot of money looking for it.

I ended up finding one on eBay for pretty cheap through the bidding process vs. buy-it-now. However, it really wasn't necessary. There was so much storage in our stateroom that I easily could have done without it. We are a family of four with two children and I think I will leave the shoe holder at home next time.

If you are going on the newer ship, it seemed to me like there was plenty of storage. On the older ships we used it only when our girls were young and there were four of us in a Cat. 11 room.
