I'm on a tight budget but there are a few things that a girl's gotta do. One of them is have matching hangers in all of our closets. In my opinion it's worth EVERY dime! I can't stand having wire, flocked, dry cleaner castoffs and all of that jazz all tangled up inside of my closet.
(By the way, you can take a look at my closet here if you interested!)
When we first moved in, I had purchased some wooden clothespins to use in my closet. I thought it was a pretty smart idea to hang up skirts so they wouldn't get wrinkled, but they wouldn't grip around our white plastic hangers and my clothes sufficiently because they didn't open wide enough. They also would come apart from the stress on the hinges and I'd find them all over the floor of my closet. No bueno!
I had a humungous stash of rubber bands and I wrapped them around the shoulder area of the hanger.
It works wonderful! Knits stay on the hanger and do not slip off!
Clothing does not slip off the hanger onto the floor anymore! Even my fabric waistband clothing that is larger than the hanger itself stays put! It just doesn't budge and I'm such a happy camper!
Isn't this brilliant? I wish I knew the exact video I saw this on but I'm almost positive that it came from either Malitose79 or Do it on a Dime's YouTube Channel.
We'll be hosting our first Frugal Friday in two days and we do hope you'll join us!
Linking up this week with these great blogs!
