That said, it seems I am not alone. According to some research done by UK Flooring Direct, more than half of Briton use their bedroom floors to store clothes, even though most of these people have plenty of wardrobe space. Those polled were asked ‘Are there currently clothes on your bedroom floor?’ to which 43% said no, with 57% admitting that there were. When those who did have clothes on the floor were asked how many of these garments were clean and how many were dirty, the average answer was revealed to be 40% clean and 60% dirty. Grim.
Now, I don't think I'm quite as bad as some of these people. Whilst I do use some storage bags on the floor of my wardrobe room (spare room) to store out-of-season clothes, I don't store any dirty clothes on the floor. Also, I am gradually tackling the lack of storage space as I've been clearing out the clothes which no longer fit me or which I no longer wear, and listing them up for sale on my Instagram sale page for a couple of weeks or so, before donating whatever I have left to charity on a regular basis.

I do accept that I still have a way to go, though. I plan to seriously reduce the amount of clothes and shoes I have to take with me when I move house. (hopefully soon). I'm slightly embarrassed to admit that in searching for today's outfit, I actually discovered that I had this dress twice. One from a few years ago, which is now a few sizes too big and I must have re-bought it. I have vague memories of tracking it down on eBay in my now size a while ago but clearly hadn't got around to getting rid of the old one. Oops. I have now.
So, do you have a "floordrobe"? And if you do, are you brave enough to share it?
