Fun Monday in the Closet

It's another Fun Monday, and this time RDH Mom and Cassie are hosting. They wanted to see the INSIDE of our closets, and we were NOT allowed to tidy them up before we took photos! I was honest, and did not clean my closet. I could have just shown you this first photo. Since we have only lived in our new home for seven months, I haven't had too much time to clutter things up:Not bad, huh? Look at those top shelves...nothing there! And room on the floor for me to actually walk into my walk-in closet. Lots of room for pants, too.

But that's not being totally honest. To be TOTALLY honest and reveal the true nature of my closet, I must show you this:Yup - there is a pile of clothes there. One small pile is stuff that needs to go to the dry cleaners. The other piles are clothes that I hastily stuffed into clear bags and moved. There is lingerie mixed with t-shirts and sweatshirts and who knows what else in those bags. Bags which are partially hidden by some cardboard and tissue paper that was stuffed into a shirt I bought. You notice how I just tossed that into the closet - in a heap? Sigh. I know better.

Now go check out all the other Fun Monday participants who are bound to be much better organized than I am!

WHERE ARE THE SHOES???!!!???!!!???

sheesh...closet pictures without seeing the shoes...I know you have great shoes...that is how we met....

Sayre said...

My closet does that... I find the older I get the more OCD I am about my closet - but I have to share it with my husband who is definitely NOT OCD about how he keeps it. Every couple of days, I wind up picking up a pile of dirty clothes or wet towels from the middle of the closet floor because I can't stand stepping on them when I go in to get my own stuff. Hence the seeming neatness...

Jan said...

Great shots of your closet, and we all have that pile of stuff that needs to go elsewhere.

Aoj and The Lurchers said...

I thought that first picture was too good to be true!! Lol!!

Tiggerlane said...

richies - you need to join our Fun Monday group - you would have to take photos of things MUCH more humiliating!

bond - you are reminding me that I didn't show the side of my closet with the formal gowns and all the pretty heels! What was I thinking, just showing my crap?

sayre - there is a HUGE benefit to having his/hers closets! However, in my house, the benefit goes to the hubby...his closet is neater.

jan - I'm just glad we didn't have to show photos of our garages...

aoj & the lurchers - how well you know me!

Heather said...

I love your last little bit of honesty. I didn't show my pile of "delicates," things that get washed on the delicate cycle, and therefore need to stay separate from the other laundered items. they are also in a pile on my closet floor.

melanie said...

I am so jealous of your closet space! And it's soooo nice and neat!

grace said...

the first picture is stuck on my mind so I think your closet is very neat and spacious

the planet of janet said...

whew. i was starting to get a little worried there for a sec!!

glad to see you join the ranks of the closet messies. :-)

Faye said...

Don't we all know how to drump the last dregs on moving day in those plastic garbage bags and then forget them for many months. BTW, have you discovered thse XXL ziplock bags. They're great--and neat--storage for mucho stuff.

Re my post today. I want to wear braver colors than black and brown, but it just feel so right to stick with them. . .

hulagirlatheart said...

Wow, look at all that space. I like to cram everything I can onto a rack.

jsi said...

A very honest closet - courage and bravery you show!
Thanks for sharing!

Desert Songbird said...

Okay, so now we want to see the formal gowns and the pretty heels, please?

I mean, it's all in the interest of full disclosure, right?

Sandy said...

You so rock! I am impressedl

Alison said...

I didn't expect that, I saw all the neatness and then the big pile in the corner....sweet!!

Thanks for playing this week!!

Gattina said...

That's quite a contrast but at least it shows that you are "normal" lol !

Vicki said...

oh my closet is terrible! Clothes take over my house. Why is that?

I have a new blog btw... =) Come by to visit. Recipes!

Tiggerlane said...

heather - funny how the "delicates" are on the floor - since they are so fragile!

melanie - and as someone metioned, I didn't even show the section with the evening gowns...it could be neater, methinks.

grace - I must remember that - first impressions!

the planet of janet - and my daughter has me beat by a MILE. I'm training her well.

faye - Ooh! Haven't seen those - must find! And yes, it's hard for me, too - I have watched some of that "What Not to Wear," and it's been like a bit of therapy...

hulagirlatheart - I hate ironing...so I try to space things out. Plus, I got rid of everything that didn't fit during the move.

jsi - you are inspiring me like Yoda! LOL!

desert songbird - I am SO BUSTED...okay - I might send you a picture...and the heels are hidden under my pants...

sandy - thank you!

alison - it was fun...and I have many, many secrets.

gattina - yes, totally normal. And weird, too.

vicki - I will come visit - and I'm sure to find something NOT diet, right?

NariceatL4 said...

Thanks--I didn't tidy mine either!! (Of course, mine is ridiculously ridiculous. I love your large closet.)

karisma said...

And here I was thinking what a perfect closet you had! Hmmmm! That last one looks more like mine, top to bottom.

Tiggerlane said...

nariceatl4 - hubby has a large one, too - which helps keep mine neater!

karisma - give me time, and mine will be the same way!
