This mess was my closet before I recently decided it was time to change things up. I did a major purge and got rid of over 3 trash bags full of clothing, shoes & handbags. I stuck to the number one most common rule, “if you haven’t worn it in 6 months, you probably won’t any time soon, and it’s time for it to find a new home.” I am now much happier with my closet. After the purge I was able to consolidate my closet usage down to my closet & the closet in the guest room, which is good. I also gained TONS of closet space by changing one tiny little thing…my hangers!
These are just a few examples of what I used to use in my closet. Now, don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love the wrapped hanger and the puffy floral fabric one with the pretty ribbon bow. They just aren’t practical if space is an issue. Instead, I switched 100 items in my closet over to these fabulous velvet hangers:
These are amazing hangers, and I totally recommend them to any of you having closet space issues. I scored 100 hangers on amazon for $50. I know these sell for over $20 in stores for 25 hangers. You can (& should!!) buy them here. They are covered in this awesome non-slip velvet material that seriously grip on all items. I have lace, silk, satin, chunky sweaters, thin tops, wide necks, etc…all of them have become best friends with this hanger. Check them out close up!
See all of that fabulous velvet love? Amazingness in a thin little hanger. My entire closet it not yet complete, but here’s a semi after picture of the different in my closet after only changing out 100 hangers:
Can you see the difference? My clothes are hung neater, they lie nicer, and are more wrinkle free than ever. Believe it or not, these are all of my clothes, minus my coats & jackets.
Sorry for the lack of quality in these photos. My camera is currently being used to photograph the ballet, so these were shot with my iPhone.
