12 Space-Saving Hangers That Will Seriously Transform Your Closet

by Amber Petty

For years, I never bought a single hanger. I had the ones I'd stolen from home when I went to college and managed to add a few more questionable wire hangers into the mix somehow. Then, it dawned on me — you can buy hangers! In fact, the best closet hangers are way more efficient than the little plastic ones that come free with your clothes.

Now, my hanger revelation might sound pretty obvious to some people, but it really changed my closet game. Instead of using whatever old wire hangers that came with the dry cleaning five years ago, you can buy a hanger that doubles (even triples!) the space in your closet. Or, if you're looking for a better way to store some of your small accessories, there are tons of hangers that will keep everything organized and take up almost zero space.

Instead of a wardrobe full of messy clothes stacked on top of one another, I now have a neatly organized closet, I'm not wasting space, and my clothes stay neat and wrinkle free. Hangers are probably the most affordable storage option around and the good ones make a surprisingly huge difference.

So, kick those monsters out of the closet and invite some of these amazing hangers in. You'll have the tidy storage of your dreams and maybe even a little extra room for your future clothing hauls.

That's pretty impressive.
