[a weight loss story]
*kathrynoh at nemesis dot com dot au*
Today I cleaned my room and put my laundry away - exciting stuff, huh but it caused me all kinds of dilemmas.
I have a dressing table with 2 half sized drawers and 2 full sized ones then I have my wardrobe with hanging space, of course, and three shelves.
At the moment I have my jumpers and knits on one of the wardrobe shelves because they are so bulky they fit there best. I also have long sleeved tops on the shelves but I used to have my tee-shirts in one of the drawers. Except then that caused confusion because what about tee-shirts with three quarter length sleeves? Are they long sleeved tops or tee-shirts? So today I put my tee-shirts in the wardrobe as well.
In the drawers I have jeans and pants in one and workout gear in the other. The workout gear drawer has tee shirts in it too and that causes confusion. Some tee shirts are definite workout tees and some are definite casual wear tees but there are some on the borderline.
Smaller drawers are all underwear - there's a definite undie drawer and the other one has all the miscelleanous crap like bathers (but maybe they should be in workout gear?) - bras and hosiery seem to float between the two, depending on where they fit. It's just chaos!
So what I want to know is how do you organise your clothes? By function or type? Do other people even worry about this stuff or am I just obsessive?
My clothes are so unorganised. Some dont even make it out of the laundry baskets. You have inspired me to organise my clothes, heh :o)

God, I'm so relieved. It's not just me...I'm not an obsessive freak. :-)
Bwahaha...I try to get organised being virgo and all. As long as my socks go in the sock box and my knickers/bras go in the other box, I'm happy. Everything else is on a hanger with the main objective to be off the floor. My gym gear goes on the hooks on the back of my door. Pretty messy to anyone else's eye but I know where everything is and it's all black!

I too am obsessive (when my clothes make it both off my floor and out of my laundry basket)
I can feel a photo post coming up... nothing else can describe it really.

I have stages of being organised like this and other stages of just hoping like hell that I can find stuff. My wardrobe is arranged with bulky stuff up the top and things are hung in batches of shirts/skirts/jackets/pants etc and within the categories they are colour configured. My drawers have one for underwear bottoms and stockings, one for bras and cami tops etc. Then either side I have two drawers of misc shit.
Some of my clothes are in the closet and some are in dresser drawers in the bedroom - it does drive me crazy that they are not in one place. I oganize them functionally - underwear, bras, socks, etc. are in the drawers: I get into them, then walk into the closet for outer clothing. I think the thing that bugs me the most is that the dirty clothes hamper is halfway between - getting undressed it seems I go back and forth several times between shedding dirty clothes, hanging back up things I will wear again, and getting fresh clothes or pajamas from the dresser.
Alaskaboy is the one that does most of the clothes washing at our house, especially since we wash fortnightly at a laundromat. And he has a certain way in which he likes to fold his clothes, so rather than ending up in an argument every single time we went to fold clothes together, I just let him have at it!

My daughter has a top system. Everything gets hung on the floor. Just kick your gear around till you find what you want. Good stuff MIGHT get thrown on a chair. You guessed it, she's a teenager. grrrrr
Oh, the perils of OCD - how to organise the clothes?
Wow, actually mine is organised pretty much the same as yours except I don't own a pair of jeans....I will one day
I'm a colour, length, type and season clothing filer. Winter/summer clothes get packed away in the off season to make more room for everything else.
