What To Do With All Of Those Plastic Clothes Hangers

Do you have too many of those plastic clothes hangers taking up precious space in your closet but just can’t bring yourself to get rid of them?

Well, me too!


Oh little hanger, what am I going to do with you?


I screamed with delight when I came across 2 very useful purposes for my stash of hangers.

The first use does not require anything except a recipe. What a clever idea! Just clip a recipe to the hanger and hang it from a knob on your cabinets. It keeps the recipe at eye level and away from the work space. Brilliant!



This next idea requires a few tools.

Put the hanger in a vice and saw off the two ends.


Now you have 2 more clips for those chip bags. I don’t usually have chips in the house but I do like my cereal to stay fresh so I use the clips to keep the cereal bag rolled tightly



Thank you craftster and Carolina Charm for sharing these great tips.
