"Ever feel like your hectic and harried schedule is physically manifested in your house? Your days may seem to blend into one another but the piles of clothing, paper, and assorted trappings don't blend, they pile up.
Even our best efforts to maintain an orderly home may be thwarted by family members who put stuff wherever they darn well please. Yet, some women seem to have an uncanny ability to keep a home tidy and appear undaunted by it.

The bottom of the closet holds a basket full of fabic grocery bags. There is no other place to store the vacuum so by default it stays here. On a side note, the duct tape adds a nice touch to the front of it. We just broke it last Friday and refuse to buy a new one until we move to THE HOUSE.
Room for orderly bags, Trains and Pumpkins backpacks and my Sunday bag.
