Believe it or not, using uniform hangers provide twice as much room in your closet. Also, you can avoid closet mayhem by using the proper hanger for the item of clothing. Why use two hangers when one will do? For example, a suit hanger allows you to hang pants and jacket on one hanger while your suit looking fresh. So throw out those wire hangers and invest in different variations of the same kind of hanger.
Not only will you have tons more hanging space, proper hanging will preserve the life of your clothing and as an added bonus your closet will look clutter-free and beautiful! We love these flocked hangers - the textured surface keeps your clothes from slipping off the hangers. Plus, they are incredibly durable and are lighter and take up less space than wooden hangers. $12 for set of 10, Clos-ette.com
