Fun Monday - The Closet Edition

Our host for Fun Monday this week is Cassie, the lovely daughter of Alison over at RDHMom and this is our assignment:

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!!

Closets. Hmmmm....I am seriously lacking in the closet department. Not that I don't have anything to fill a closet, I do. Lots in fact! It's just that I don't have much in the way of actual closet space. Most of you have seen pictures of my bedroom showing the bed, what you haven't seen is the bedroom from the other side, that is, what I see when I'm lying in bed. Well, this is it.

As you can see, closet space is lacking. To the right I have a single wardrobe (as we call them over here in the UK), in the middle is a chest of drawers and, in the only other possible place for storage, I have two full shelves of wicker baskets holding everything else.

So, let's get up close and personal.

In the baskets are evening clothes, winter woolies and all other clothes that aren't worn too often. Also in the baskets is bed linen, towels and throws. The pink box contains my long boots. The other pair of long boots are, for some reason, not on the shelf but hiding behind my bedside cabinet. I also need a step-ladder to get to the top shelf.

Inside the wardrobe: Shirts, smart trousers and jackets and skirts

The shoes I don't wear very often (all the others are in the hall cupboard)

The chest of drawers (I've not photographed my underwear drawers. You really don't need to see those do you!?)


More t-shirts and jimjams!

Jeans & Trousers

More jeans and trousers and sweatshirts!

Now head over to RDHMom to see who else is taking part in Cassie's Fun Monday!


  1. You are so organized. I really like the use of baskets, too.

  2. Wow. I am so impressed. I did not share any of my organized closets. I shared.... the one... the dangerous closet... the 'don't move anything because it will all fall out' closet.

  3. I happen to know why all your drawers are so neat, I do believe there was a mass tidy up not so long ago. ;)

  4. Well yes, there is that!! I was just trying to have at least one post without mentioning that event!

  5. lordy be, g/friend! this is incredibly organized and tidy.

    i am ashamed....

  6. So organized! I loved looking at how tidy it all is. I want to be that tidy, but don't ever manage to get there!

  7. Exceptional! You are very tidy and on top of everything you own. When closet space is lacking, a wardrobe is an amazing incentive to only keep what you are wearing.
    It takes a bit of courage and bravery to expose to others what can be typically hidden away.

    Thanks for sharing!

  8. I think people who live in small spaces have to be wonderfully creative and organized in order to function. You, apparently, are both!

  9. I love your baskets...very nice.

  10. small but very neat and organized.

    Thanks for playing this week!!

  11. You put me to shame with your tidiness!
