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.

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!

@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)

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.
