    This photo isn't clear enough for an ID, mate. It might be a Steatoda species, just going by the legs.

    I’d guess Theridiidae something. There’s no way to confidently I
    ID this.

    These are different spiders i found around the house, any help identifying them would be greatly appreciated.

    The second two photos could be wolf spiders.

    Those are not wolf spiders in those pictures. I'm pretty sure they're in the genus Loxosceles, not sure which species.

    The second photo is a mature male; compare with a ghost spider (Anyphaenidae) or sac spider (Cheiracanthium).

    That’s just what the Loxosceles want you to think.

    yeah sac spider seems like a reasonable guess.

    Edit: actually now that I look at it again the third one definitely looks like a sac spider. Those socks :D
