Stop tossing your entire wardrobe over a chair and get organized with the "Grapple Clothing Hook."

If you go into my room right now, I can't guarantee it's "clean." But I assure you there's nothing on the floor.

That's because I hang (more often, throw) my stuff onto every desk, doorknob, peg, bureau, and bedpost I can find. Sure, I have a closet. But what's the point of putting my favorite sweatshirt away? I know I'm going to reach for that grungy thing every single morning when I get up. Might as well hang it from the bathroom door where my half-asleep self can locate it. I am never going to be the type to put clothes on a hanger or put a hanger on a rail, and I am OK with that.

Future partners may not be. So I am glad to find that there is middle ground in the Grapple Clothing Hook.

This four-pronged, leather-accented grappling hook hangs conveniently from a ceiling hook and offers an elegant, outdoorsy landing space for your coat, hat, scarf, underwear, dirty socks—the possibilities are endless. The motto of oopsmark, the Montreal-based company behind this product, is "Tools for Urban Living," but be warned that it is not intended to function as an actual hook with which to grapple.  

My mom would be pretty disappointed to hear I was hanging my dry cleaning from my bedpost. She'd be equally disappointed to find me hanging it from a grappling hook. But at least this tool makes it looks good.
