My closet was getting a bit out of hand....meaning it was overflowing. Both closets. The problem with gaining and losing weight is that you must have two sizes of clothes at all times. It's not that I have all that many clothes, just that I have two wardrobes. One for 10 pounds lost, one for 10 pounds gained. I have friends who have weighed the same since high school...what's up with that? I haven't weighed the same that I did in high school since high school. The first pregnancy killed that. Back to my story. I've been using those plastic hangers like department stores use on their racks. After all every time I buy something they ask me - do you want the hanger - and I can get them home nice and unwrinkled so I say yes. I have no idea why that's important since I launder them when I get them home anyway. (The one time I didn't wash a blouse I was so allergic to the dye in it that I was sick as a dog the whole time I had it on!) Those hangers multiplied. And they're quite thick. Maybe they've gained 10 pounds too.
My sister told me about these "skinny" hangers that take up less space in your closet.
I ordered mine from Amazon but I see them everywhere now. They're skinny for sure and nothing slides off them so that's a good thing. You can't yank your shirt off the hanger if you're in a hurry because they'll break pretty easily so that's the down side. But they actually do take up less space and now my clothes aren't getting wrinkled from being stuffed in there. (I didn't hang jeans/pants on them because I like the wire hangers the cleaners give you for that. Can you see a pattern here...liking things people give me?)
Now if someone out there can just tell me how to make my fabric be skinnier for storage I'll be ever so grateful. Because no matter what I do, how I fold it, or hang it, or yell at it....it still takes up lots of space! And don't tell me to get rid of some of it. That would be cruel. Even if it's fat, I love it.
