If, unlike us, you've never thrown your barely worn clothes on the back of a chair (or worse, on the floor) after a long day, we want to personally deliver you a medal. The tricky dilemma of this all-too-frequent situation arises every time a piece of clothing is too clean to be thrown in the laundry basket but too dirty to be hung in the closet again. After just a few busy days, what was once a cute lounge chair in the corner of your bedroom now resembles the laundry pile at your local dry cleaner, and your decluttered dreams of a peaceful night's sleep are thrown out the window.
In the name of a quality snooze (which increases the more organized your space is), we've set out to ban the chair pile-up for good. So how do you manage your lightly worn clothes without overwashing or turning into an overzealous organizer? We give you seven solutions so deceptively easy that it'll be like you never even had clutter in the first place.
If your clothing or accessories too often end up on the floor, consider a set of hooks for a space-saving solution.

If you truly want your clothes out of sight at all times, try a closet system where you reserve a section for dry cleaning and lightly worn clothes.
If you're a fan of the clothes hamper, invest in a basket with a lid. Out of sight, out of mind really does make all the difference.
Classic type-A personalities will relish in the convenience of this valet clothes stand for lightly worn outfits.
