My Secret For Keeping Clothing Off Our Bedroom Floor
When you get home for the day, what do you do with the clothes you wore? Do you throw them all straight into the laundry basket, hang them over a chair or pile them on the floor?
I’ve always struggled with this when it comes to clothing I want to re-wear.
I don’t really want to put my clothing back in the drawer, but I don’t necessary want to wash it either. This has always confused me. There needs to be a place for clothes that are in between wears, like the sweatpants I wear every night for a week straight or the jeans I wear multiple times in a weekend.
Since I’m not sure where to put these things, they often end up in a pile on the floor next to my dresser. And I don’t know about you, but it stresses me out to walk into a messy bedroom with clothes sprawled all over the place.
When I get home from work and head to our bedroom to change out of my work clothes, my mood instantly changes to reflect the state of our room. If the bed is messy and the floor is littered with odd socks and shirts, I immediately feel more stressed and moody. But if I walk into a room with a neatly made bed and a clean floor, I feel myself start to relax. Our environment affects our mood greatly, and keeping things organized can definitely help keep the stress at bay.
So when we set out to complete our bedroom makeover, I knew I needed a solution to organize my bedroom that would keep our clothing off the floor.

The organizing solution: hooks!
During our bedroom makeover, I set out to redecorate and organize my bedroom. One way I did this was by adding a row of sturdy hooks to the back of our bedroom door, and another row of hooks to the inside of a closet door.
My husband and I are each assigned a set of hooks, and this system works marvelously for keeping our clothing off the floor. It sounds crazy to think I’m too lazy to hang something back up on a hanger or fold it neatly into a drawer all the time, but it’s true! It’s so tempting to throw things in a pile on the floor and let it mound up. Hooks are a way to avoid this.
It takes about the same amount of effort to hang something on a hook as it does to toss it on the floor. So I try my best to contain my things to the row of hooks on the back of our bedroom door.
I chose these hooks from D.Lawless Hardware to organize my bedroom because they are not only stylish but also super functional. They are large, quality hooks with two prongs, which gives me lots of room to hang things on the back of our bedroom and closet doors.
All this talk about hooks got me thinking of other places I could use some, so I rounded up some of my favorite options. There are about a gazillion different hook options out there – which do you like?
Simple hooks are certainly not a revolutionary organizing tool, but they are definitely effective! My challenge to you is to pinpoint a place in your house that could benefit from a few new hooks. Maybe, like me, you need a solution for keeping clothing off your bedroom floor. Or maybe your kitchen or office could use a place to hang things that you use frequently.
