Dirty clothes go in your hamper, but we often mess up the room with clothes that are worn but not quite dirty yet. Instead of throwing them on a chair or bed, keep a coat hanger around as a quick dumping place.
I’m a pretty neat and tidy guy — my friends would call me compulsive — but one thing I definitely struggle with are those worn-but-not-yet-dirty clothes.
