What's in your closet? A closet at a security checkpoint is labeled "CONTINGENCY DEPLOYMENT EQUIPMENT," which essentially means:

"things to use if stuff happens"

that's what's in my closet!

In the Air Force that closet would be labeled - CDE.

I guess I'd refer to my closets as a Repository of Redundant Acquistions or RRA for short.
