    MoL posted a crazy picture of boxes and boxes of shoes all crammed into a small-looking space, I'd like to see more like that too.

    How about a walk-in dining room?

    View from living room..

    My entry for most/least organized closet/dining room. I moved into an old 2 bedroom house with no closets. Forumite nightmare. Fortunately I probably have fewer clothes than your typical forumite and everything was packed into these hanging wardrobe boxes. I've been using them for this makeshift closet.

    Panorama. Kitchen to the left.

    View from kitchen.
    Things I'm carrying/wearing are hung. Casual pants and shirts in the wardrobe boxes are relatively within reach.
    Using laddered hangers to keep 25-30 pairs packed in each wardrobe box saves space. Some ties and a couple of shelf/drawers in the back. The little door is not a closet alas but a furnace. No closets here.

    Casual shirts in the canvas organizer are easily accessed. I dress mostly casual. Organizer is bending and ready to break after 3 months.

    Suits, sportcoats, and outerwear that need to be accessible, nicer stuff in canvas. Belts hung in the distance.
    I recommend an all metal garment rack like this one. It's bending but will hold up.

    Stacked wardrobe boxes with suits and sportcoats below and trousers up top. Tough to get to but not worn often.

    Left to right, coats and jackets in wardrobe boxes, sweaters in a trunk, footwear put away in the flat boxes, and some shirts. I keep current rotation shoes near the front door.

    My t-shirts, underwear, and socks are in a dresser in the bedroom. One of the tall wardrobe boxes and a couple of bags here belong to my wife. Her clothes take up the 2 bedrooms in similar fashion. She will not have them photographed :embar:

    How about a follow-up "most disorganized" contest for some cheer after the holidays?

    Yes, the tension is really grating on my nerves. It must require tremendous stamina to keep it from turning into a tornado of filth.
    Are you going to have closets made, or...?

    This is not the thread for me, but thanks for the thought! It still needs a renovation.
