Hangers… such a love hate relationship, isn’t it? We love how they hang our clothes so organized and pretty in a seamless row in our closet. Then, hate how they are lay all over the closet floor (or bedroom floor) with no place for them to go when we aren’t using them. It’s easier than you think to love your them instead of hate them, all it takes is simply organizing the hangers and creating a place for them to go while they aren’t being used. Because let’s face it, Hangers need a place to call home, too.
When you don’t have a place for you hangers to go, they end up on the floor and broken. It really takes no time to find a place for your hangers to hang. Still not convinced? Let me give you some reasons you want a home for your hangers.
Top 3 reasons you want to have a special place for your hangers:
- Saves time. When you are doing laundry, the last thing you want to do is search for empty hangers to hang your laundry. When you have a place for your hangers to call home, you no longer have to hunt.
- Your closet looks neater. You have your clothes all nice in a row, no hangers sticking up or laying on the floor. Your closet always looks inviting and orderly.
- Always know where your hangers are. When you are needing to hang clothes up, you aren’t having to hunt for hangers since they have their own home. You always know where you can locate an empty hanger.
Designating a place in your closet for your empty hangers is easy. You can simply move your empty hangers to the front part of the closet or create a different space for them all together. Click this link to watch my Facebook live video talking all about organizing empty hangers.
The hangers we use in our closet:
Of course there are so many choices to decide between when it comes to hangers. Before we redid our closet we used the white, plastic hangers. We used these for years. It was only when we redid our closet that we actually put thought into the type we would like our clothes to hang on. One of the biggest things we considered while choosing new ones was whether or not they would leave those annoying little pokey indentions on our shirts. These are the ones we decided upon for our closet.
Black wooden hangers – We use these for all our clothes except pants, jeans, skirts, and tank tops.
Pant hangers – We use these for the obvious, pants. Also jeans and skirts.
White plastic hangers – I use these now only for tank tops.
If you are ready to organize your hangers and change them out, there are some things you need to consider. Let’s take a look at those now:
- The size of your closet.
- How bothersome are those annoying little pokey indentions to you?
- How many items do you hang up? You need to make sure you have enough hangers for the ones you are replacing.
- How important is it to you to have a closet that looks and feels organized and tidy when you open your closet door?
