Strange post I know, but somehow over the years I have accumulated about a zillion plastic clothes hangers. I guess I would put the extras somewhere, then eventually I would clean out my closet (which would give me more hangers) and then put THOSE hangers somewhere, and later buy more clothes forgetting all about the hangers so I would buy MORE hangers LOL.
Sooo… now I have approximately 1,475,362 spare hangers.
Ok not really but it sure does feel like it and trust me, we don’t have that much closet space, so I can’t just hang the empty ones up. I hate to get rid of them, because they do cost money (but then again, they’re only like a dollar for 10 at walmart :P)
Anyways, ok back to working on my closets now!

I’d buy more clothes :p
jk. I would just toss the ones in bad shape, or the free ones from the stores and keep the rest. If I really had more than I needed, I’m sure you could donate them. Maybe goodwill? or churches that might do the big yard sale type of things? Or you could post on CL or something, idk. I’d likely just toss them, but that’s just me.

I agree, buy more clothes!
Actually, we have so many extra ones too. We rubber banded ours together, and put them in a storage tub under the bed.

I have a wicker basket that I put all the good ones in. The cheap wire ones from the dry cleaner get thrown away along with the ones with the size tags on them from stores. If you fill up all your storage space, I would list them on craigslist for free to get rid of them.

I take the wire ones back to the dry cleaner. I take extra ones in good shape to goodwill or salvation army and ask if they can use them.

Hahaha @ “buy more clothes”!
I will probably store them under the bed or something.. I did find an empty spot under there awhile ago lol.

I have a phobia of wire hangers. Come to my house—you will not find even one! My mom says as a kid I used to cry non stop when she used wire hangers in my closet. They are so—creepy.
BUT, I love plastic hangers. They all have to match, I only use whites ones with the hookies in the shoulders. You can neverrrr have enough hangers! Keep them–one day you’ll wish you had extras!

@ Virginia – OMG! Are you serious?! I also HATE the wire hangers and I ONLY LIKE TO USE WHITE HANGERS with the SHOULDER HOOKS!!!! HOW WEIRD IS THAT?! 😛 Are we twins?
I’m OCD about some stuff, and hangers is one of them. I really really do not like to use any other color of hanger. I know I sound like a weirdo but I can’t help it and I don’t know why! LOL.

@Ok–HAHAH This is great news—I am super OCD about my hangers. I am so glad we’re in this together. Side note: I have already eaten two pieces of pizza, and a spoonful of cool whip since getting off the treadmill 10 minutes ago. RATS!

I say keep the good ones because you will need them eventually! I store mine in my laundry room but if that isn’t an option try a basket or maybe a plastic bin?
I am OCD about my hangers too…I won’t use wire, all my pants/skirts get those nice soft cloth ones with the hooks and my tops get the white ones with the hooks on the shoulders for tanks!
I also MUST put my shirts in sleeve length order and if I take a shirt out to wear I must take the hanger out too and put it in the laundry room so when I need to hang up shirts I’ve just washed, the hangers are there. I cannot STAND finding empty hangers stuck between clothes in the closet (and trust me my SO knows this! haha)

@ Virginia – I don’t think the pizza will hurt you actually. When I used to work out all the time (split and hour between the treadmill/elliptical) I was able to eat whatever I wanted and never gain a pound. It was only when I stopped working out at that intensity that it started to creep on. Boo @ lazy me 🙁

@ Sulli – well it looks like the 3 of us need some serious therapy to get over our obsessive behavior!

I can’t wait to register for wooden hangers, that all match and I’ll never have to look at my ugly mismatched plastic ones again lol

A church, daycare, or elementary school might be interested in wire ones for craft projects. Small thrift stores (like those run by churches) usually can use plastic ones, even the crappy ones from stores.
