I have a chair next to my bed where I put the outfit on. If it's dressy stuff I've only worn for a couple of hours, I usually just hang it outside for some "airing" and then put it back in the closet.

For our kids clothes we have a re-wear basket. For us, we drape top/t-shirts on the end post of the bed, and pants gets folded and placed in the closet. I would love for us to use a basket for our tops/shirts though.

I have a large trunk in my room that I use to store the linens in. I toss the item to be re-worn over it. That way it is off the floor and makes a nifty cat bed : Also, I occasionally re-hang the item then hang it on the back of my door. That might work for you, that way it is not in the closet to be mistaken for being totally clean, and yet it is up off the floor.

I only wear skirts, and I usually wear them at least twice. It depends on what I am doing that day, but I don't usually get them dirty enough to warrent washing each time. My Grandmother told me that you wear your clothes out more in the washing machine than on your back.

Mine mostly end up on the floor for a week and if it generally gets worn over that time. If not, I usually then refold and put it in a drawer or rehang. Items that fall into this category are not dirty - outer tops, jeans, skirts etc. They may sometimes get folded and put on the blanket box at the end of my bed. Very random!
