Fun Monday - What's In Your Closet?



Cassie over at RDH Mom would like to know the following:

I want to see the inside of your closet!! I want to see if your closet is as messy as mine!!! You can't organize it before you take the picture!!



So, I followed the rules closely this week and will take you on a tour of my (walk in) closet.


Here's the look from outside the door. I have to share with my husband. I get the left side, he gets the right side.



These are my clothes. I don't care which way they hang and sometimes my winter clothes mingle with my summer clothes, though I try to keep them separate, mainly so they'll be easier to find when I want them.


These are my shoes on the floor. I try to use the shoe organizer, but I have too many shoes. So they get paired up on the floor.


These are more shoes, only they are in their boxes. These are mainly my nicer shoes that don't get worn as often.


This is one of the messier parts of my closet. On the shelf at the far end of my closet. Clothes that I don't have any other space for get folded up and put up here. But I'm lazy, so after I wear them, sometimes they get loosely folded and flung back up on top of the pile.


These are my crafts and other assorted junk I have collected. I used to do a lot of cross stitching and that basket holds most of my cross stitching stuff. I keep thinking I'll do it again someday.


Shhhhhhh! Don't tell my kids, but this is where some of their gifts are hidden. Obviously they are not very good lookers and finders or I couldn't do this!


Finally, these are clothes for my daughters and a few baby gifts. Sometimes I buy a gift when I see it and love it, and save it for the right person. And when I buy something at the end of the season for one of my daughters, I have to put it in my closet, otherwise they will want to wear it immediately and bug me to no end until they do. In my closet it is basically out of sight out of mind.

Well, that's my closet. Now, go check out everyone else's closets!

Looks fine to me! I'm not 'into' cleaning closets at all. You showed your shelves too---maybe I should do that also. Ooops.

Come see my mess. It's posted this morning.

Happy Fun Monday.

LOL! Your messy side looks a bit like my clean side! I really must tidy up one of these days! He he! Don't tell my mum!

Oh my gosh! I have the same shoes! The black slip ons with the black button! :0)

I am so jealous of your big closet! Maybe my daughter would not have found some of her Christmas presents if they had been hidden in a camoflauged box like yours...
Nope, I'm still embarrassed about my closet!

I'd kill for a walk in closet. My closet's pretty big, but not big enough. I hide gifts in mine too, but the 13 year old has figured out where to snoop.

I envy your walk in closet even if it has to be shared or used to stash contraband. I'm beginning to get a chuckl;e out of all our unused shoe "houses". Entirely too much trouble. Like you, I just fold play clothes and stash in the handiest closet.

Lots of room in your closet!

I would hate to share a closet with the hubby - he has more clothes than I do!

Irish Coffeehouse said...

You're brave!!! :) I wouldn't dare post pics of mine. lol

Sayre said...

You have managed to get a lot into your half of the closet... I'd say that just PROVES your organizational skills!

*AOJ dreams of a walk-in closet!*

In our closet I get the left, too. In our house it might be political. You organizational style is similar to mine, and I think we all would benefit from larger closets.

Leanne said...

So tell me Heather, Would it be this organized if you didn't have to share with your husband????? Hmmmm???

looks pretty good to me.

especially in comparison to mine ;-)

You have yourself one big closet! I share my clothes closet with my husband, too, and I keep my shoes organizer as the divider. He claims it keeps all of his clothes from picking up the Eternity fragrance from my clothes. mI just like defining my space (because its alot smaller than his.)

Thanks for sharing!

Alison said...
