My wardrobe isn't gigantic, but I too started acquiring more once I figured out my personal style and found some good local sources. I also tend to want to find the "best" (for my purposes) version of an item, I like to be prepared for anything, and I have a chronic illness that makes me uncomfortable in certain items on many days, all of which means I've got a bunch of small capsules-of-sorts for formal occasions, cold weather, sick days, etc.

My systems:

  • I keep rarely used and out-of-season capsules separate and stored where I can least access and thus least see them. The goal is avoid looking at a whole bunch of clothes right in front of me, not sure why none of it seems like what I want to wear that day or why I keep grabbing the same few. If half of it has been weaned out for good reasons, I see only items I might actually wear now, which keeps me from feeling guilty for passing so many up and makes me more aware of "hidden" items I didn't notice when they were outnumbered. Note on weaning out: There are gray area pieces that I could wear if I just decided to dress fancy-ish on a normal day or layer that maxi dress under a sweater, and I just have to be realistic about whether I'd actually like the outfit I could make with it or am kidding myself about its versatility or my lifestyle.
  • I keep items with similar uses in the same part of the closet, so I don't forget about one type and always reach for another. For example, jeans are in a folded stack beneath a few hanging skirts and bottoms, and in a drawer under that (nearly, anyway) are leggings and tights. If I don't do that, I grab the things I can see and forget about the ones in a far-away drawer.
  • I keep frequently-used shoes by the door and extra purty/rarely used ones in a visible place in the closet. It might seem obvious for practical reasons, but I also (mostly) don't need to see what my outfits look like with the knee-high boots I wear every other day, while I'm still experimenting with my other shoes and need to see them in the mirror and remember I have them when I'm looking around my closet for options. As with the above, out-of-season (sandals) and truly rarely used shoes (schmancy heels) are stored away, because it's more space efficient, I don't need them cluttering up my field of vision, and I know where to look if I need them.
  • I keep all clothes with like clothes, which certainly isn't uncommon but I know isn't everyone's instinct. Tanks with tanks (plain identical cotton ones folded beneath other hanging ones), l/s with l/s, nice sweaters grouped, more sporty sweaters grouped, etc.
  • Everything in a drawer must be visible. I hear that's Konmari-style too, storing everything vertically instead of stacking. That goes for my scarves, beanies, underwear, leggings...well, almost everything except in one drawer where I keep stacks of things like old tanks for home use and just take one off the top.


  • I use the velvet-coated hangers from Amazon, because they're not only thin but uniform: I don't want different or colorful hangers adding chaos to my view of my closet. I do have a some wooden ones for pants and heavier items like coats, but otherwise I stick to those.
  • Everyone recommends the IKEA Skubb set for drawers, but even IKEA offers others that might better suit your needs, depending on what you're folding and the size of your drawers. I have and love a set of these Komplement trays, which are made for their PAX system but also fit in some of my drawers and are great for larger items than most of the Skubbs. Besta also has a couple interesting options, and Komplement includes some jewelry trays like this one. (I use a couple plain trays from The Container Store, myself.)
  • ETA: I also use these to keep my boots up, so they're not flopping about all willy-nilly.

  1. I prefer a pop-up hamper. It keeps your room looking cleaner. Pick one with long straps or a short, stout shape (laundry basket) that will be easy to carry to the laundry room.
  2. I hang-dry some, not all, of my clothes. I'd suggest something like this instead, and use clip hangers for small items like socks and lingerie. If you're dead-set on hang-drying all of your clothes, a drying rack might be a good idea.
  3. My shoes lived, and presently live, in a pile. Line them up best you can on the closet floor.
  4. A small sewing kit to reattach buttons and mend popped seams is never a bad idea. That particular one is a little excessive, all you need is a few colors of thread, a few spare buttons, and needles.


    First, ask yourself: do I use this item in my everyday life at home? If the answer is no, you likely will not want or need it at school, either.

    Water kettle: A microwave would be a better value for the space than an electric kettle, just check with your roommate first. But if you drink a TON of tea, it may be worth it.

    Fabric steamer: You know yourself better than I do; I never had use for one though.

    Hair dryer: Drop the money on a microfiber hair turban instead - healthier for your hair and super effective.

    A good room-illuminating lamp is an absolute must to me, because the awful fluorescent lights in the dorms are sooooo painful on your eyes. Get one of the <$10 torchieres at Target or Walmart, that's all you need.

    If you have linoleum floors (a lot of the dorms on my campus did), you'll probably want either slippers or a small rug or both. Sinking your feet onto ice-cold linoleum first thing in the morning is awful.

    Bring any consumables you'll need in the first week - shampoo, conditioner, bodywash, snacks, and if you have a private bathroom, toilet paper and hand soap - with you. You don't want to stand an hour in line at CVS after a 6 hour drive because you don't have TP.

    A 6-in-1 screwdriver. This will save your bacon if you buy any furniture for your dorm and takes up very little room.

Hangers with clips (Either alone or on the hanger). On the hanger is fun because you can usually slide them towards or away from each other, and the tension will hold them a bit in place.

Vice grips - the weight can be really satisfying

Binder clips - even better are the ones with the magnet on the end!

Alligator cilps

Jumper cables, but probably need some heavy padding.

Chopsticks and tight (small) rubber bands.

Almost anything with "clip" or "clamp" in the name. So, for instance, if you have those heavy-duty clamps that get used to hold down a tablecloth at an outdoor picnic, that can be fun. Or woodworking clamps.

There are also things you can do to up the intensity even with gentle things. Ex: after the clothespins have been on a while, turn them 90 degrees. Or go more for the edge of the nipple rather than the base. Or get a spatula/paddle and slap your nipples to get them tender first.

You can really have fun with anything that squeezes. I remember as a kid using two clipboards. It was tough to get the nipple in, but was a fun sensation.

Hope that gives you some ideas!

Another good alternative is to hang dry them. I used to just put the hangers on the frame of the door, but then my grandma bought me a couple of these and I love them.

I'm not sure where she got them, but they look exactly like the ones sold on Amazon. I also found this rack and it looks great as well.

At my mother's house, she hangs them on a rack but she has more space than I do.

I find that there isn't much difference to hanging them this way for blouses and pants. I only lay my sweaters to dry.

My family has been drying our clothes this way for about 10 years and there is a HUGE difference in how long our clothes last.

u/dacv393 · 1 pointr/Outlier

Yeah good point. Guess mine doesn't really fit the bill for OP. I only have a few merino wool shirts. I have even noticed they aren't doing too well hanging in my closet. I had them in there since I remembered something about how they should be kept with space between them while hanging or something. Any recommendations for storing them? Just fold them all?

Also, I know there are a few other hangers that may be ok for drying wool, like these or these, but no clue how well they work. Also, since I only have a couple shirts, I think that my rack, combo'd with one like this would be a sweet portable set-up to fit all my needs. I'm sure something like this 6-layer one might be better for OP, but uses a lot of space

u/chemcalfarmr · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

so I offer you some hangers and velcro ties.

why do i want these items you ask? well first off, I need them to get my house in order. but secondly, both of them can be used for some NSFW fun...and no-one has to knoowww. ;) Schmad on my add on please! Congrats on the raise and thank you for the awesome contest!

u/am2370 · 2 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

There's some great advice in this thread, but I'd like to add - buy slim velvet hangers. I thought my closet was full and just by replacing all my hangers with extra slim ones, I was able to actually save a lot of space in my closet, eliminating basically one whole side of hanger area, so that it looks much less cluttered. I purchased some like these from Amazon, and they're amazing.

u/dandelion_winery · 1 pointr/femalefashionadvice

For purses/bags, I use an over-the-door hanger like this. It gets a little crowded but easy to find my bags.

For scarves, I use a scarf hanger, which you could also use for leggings/tights as well. I keep my scarf hanger in my coat closet by the front door in the wintertime. I keep a basket for gloves and hats too, in my regular closet. Is your wicker basket lined? I can imagine threads getting caught and pulled!

For tank tops that I rarely wear (mainly for layering under sweaters), I use a tiered hanger. I suspect this could work for many types of shorter tops!

u/immigat · 3 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

These items work the best for me, but I'm used to really small closets.

For sorting scarves. Picture

For my PJs, gloves, beanies, swim suits, belts, etc. It's hard to tell in the picture, but the top pockets are divided. Picture

For my shirts, sweaters that I won't/can't hang, pants, and bras. Picture
In it I use these boxes on the bottom shelves
to organize my underwear by type (one box) and my socks/tights (the second box). Picture

These are great for hanging my skirts and keeping 'sets' together. Probably my best closet find since maxi skirts can be a nightmare to keep wrinkle-free and organized. Picture.

I bought this multihanger for my dresses but it isn't that handy. My dresses don't slide off, but its difficult to grab dresses that are in the middle. I use it for storing out-of-season dresses. Picture.

I've also used those locker shelves for shoes since I found ~10 of them in my school's dumpster. If you're going to buy shelving for shoes, a normal shoe rack might be cheaper/better looking.

u/Mshenay · 3 pointsr/headphones

I built them my self, Banana Hangers, and 1/4 Weather Stripping, it's SUPER sticky on one side, smooth foam on the other!

You can order the banana hangers on amazon, you need one that is either Flat at the top or slopes down, the cheaper bamboo amazon ones slope upward and don't really work. Walmart USED to sell the CORE Banana Hangers for $6.50, they are very well built and I love the finish on the wood! THose are the ones I used in pictures, sadly I only bought two from Wal-Mart, the rest I've ordered on Amazon for $10 a piece :/

u/suchadude · 96 pointsr/TrollXChromosomes

Details and links:

Just sent a box of 100 wire hangers to OH Gov Mike DeWine. This was a campaign that comes from back when Kasich was in office, and the bill was on his desk. He vetoed it. Unfortunately this time the bill is already signed, but DeWine still needs a dose of reality.

The hangers were $21.95 on Amazon.

I wiped out his address so I don’t get banned for doxxing, even though it’s publicly available. 🤷🏼‍♀️ Just search “Governor Mike DeWine office address” - it’s on the contact page at the bottom. Be sure to mark it as a gift so you can tell him how you feel! Sadly there’s a character limit - damn you, Amazon!

My gift message:

> Governor, I can’t safely carry to term due to a mental condition. Thanks for signing my death warrant, along with the rest of your vulnerable female constituents. Here’s a gift of our only remaining option. With love, (name and zip)

Have at it, folks! Especially you, Ohio constituents. Make your voice heard!

u/blackhaloangel · 1 pointr/blogsnark

We have a house with big rooms and almost no storage. I'd put good quality shoe pocket hangers on the back of every door you can hide. We use them in the kitchen for sauce packets & ziplock bags, in the hall closet for everything from hats to first aid to gift wrap supplies. I couldn't live without them. We also have over the door hooks, sometimes in addition to the pocket hangers. My favorite laundry room thing is [this](http://www.Spectrum.com/ Hanger Holder Color: White (Size: 11 3/4" H x 2 " W x 1 1/4" D) - 2 Count https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00B92O2VQ/). Good luck!

u/RAproblems · 17 pointsr/GenderCritical

This is not my original post, but I joined OP in sending some and now I am sharing!

Here's the best price on wire hangers with Prime. https://www.amazon.com/ProCare-Strong-Silver-Galvanized-Hangers/dp/B015RXAFZY/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?crid=UYU3BOEYTWCZ&keywords=dry+cleaner+hangers+wire&qid=1555294593

u/JDub226 · 1 pointr/goodyearwelt

That's the reason I went for finished wood — it sacrifices the aromatic and absorbent qualities of cedar, but there's less chance of splintering and cracking.

I should mention that I only use those for suits and outerwear. I use thick plastic hangers like these for shirts, and I've found that they're more than thick enough to prevent "hanger bumps" and unwanted stretching. But I've been wanting to upgrade to wood hangers like these because they provide the same benefit without the unwieldiness of the thick plastic hooks.

If your research turns up a definitive conclusion on resin versus wood, let me know!

u/Wurm42 · 1 pointr/washingtondc

There are some taxidermy shops in the outer suburbs (J&P Taxidermy in Manassas comes to mind), but it's not the kind of business where you can walk in and they've got a few of everything on the shelf.

Most taxidermy is custom work, especially for rarer trophy animals. Shops will generally have a few items for sale, but they're going to be expensive-- most of the mounted animals you see in a taxidermy shop are for display purposes, to show off what the place can do for hunters after they've killed something impressive. Not saying they wouldn't sell the display pieces if you made a good enough offer, but they wouldn't be cheap.

If you want to find affordable taxidermy pieces, look at estate sales. It's common for the younger generation in a family to really not want grandpa's hunting trophy collection, and not know much about the potential value of the pieces.

Two other cautionary notes:

  • Stuffed/mounted animals require periodic maintenance, or they'll start to smell.

  • Mounted heads can be heavy. Don't try to hang one on a regular picture hook. Be careful if you try to hang one in a rental apartment.

    On the other hand, novelty inflatable moose heads are cheap and lightweight. Grin.

u/saroka · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I need hangers cause I'm an idiot and don't have enough with me to even fill up part of the closet. I also need a rice cooker cause food? And this pad thing so that I can work out in my apartment and so that when my boyfriend visits he doesn't sleep on the bare floor. XD I guess they link with apartmenty stuff, but in totally different rooms. XD And to infinity and beyond!

Tie rack!!!

Thanks for the contest! Add-ons are so always the best items, aren't they???


u/repete66219 · 1 pointr/rawdenim

Have you seen those "magic hangers"? Like this. Although to be honest, I'm not sure if there's any solution to storing 50 pairs of jeans. :-D

u/NickiNackPaddyWhack · 2 pointsr/weddingplanning

These are the hangers: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B002YH4MYC/ref=cm_sw_r_awd_ISw-tb0X6FJVE

The diy instructions say to drill a small hole in the hanger, fill it with super glue, and then stick the ends of the wire in. I'm hoping it's as easy as it sounds... Fingers crossed!!

u/IggySorcha · 1 pointr/santashelpers

There's a really awesome inflatable moose head I've always found success with: here

u/acetrainerelise · 45 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

College student here, used to shitty dorm closets: If you don't mind having to iron things at the change of seasons, I like to keep off-season clothes and things I don't wear much in my suitcase. The suitcase is just sitting there taking up space anyway, and by packing it well (rolling!! roll as much as you can!!! I only fold heavy knits and sweaters) you can fit a lot into a simple carry-on. Multi-pants hangers and multi-skirt hangers are really useful for maximizing closet space, but I personally don't like multi-shirt hangers and find them incredibly inconvenient. I keep all of my jackets on an over-the-door hanger like this and use the basket (mine only has one) to hold my clutch, spare wallet, dry umbrellas, and sunglasses. On the other side of the door I have a shoe organizer that can also hold scarves and gloves and such. Honestly, seeing what college students are doing could be really good inspo for you since we live in tiny spaces with almost no closet and find a way to make it work.

u/oldmonty · -3 pointsr/lifehacks

ok... So I mean, yea, this would work right

Serves the same purpose but better, no sliding rings, doesn't look like shit.

BTW, I dont know if you realize this, the top part of a clothes hanger is actually perfect for hanging ties around, I think the intended design was to have one dress shirt and one tie around the same hanger.

u/brikachuu · 1 pointr/femalefashionadvice

For hangers, I really like these. Super thin and my clothes don't slip off.

u/WeddingShit · 12 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

Sweaters tend to be heavier and will stretch or become mishapen, typically with a shoulder bump if they are hanged on a hanger through the neck hole (is there a proper term for that? Haha I'm going with neck hole). Here is an example of that happening

Hangers like this which are broader and keep the clothes in place are a tad bit better, since it is wide enough to accomodate the shoulders, but generally, you should avoid hanging sweaters.

Typically, yes, folding sweaters in a drawer is best because there is no specific part which is put under more pressure and will stretch. If you don't have a drawer or storage available, sweaters can be hanged llike this to prevent stretching.

u/jaime_riri · 12 pointsr/funny

Depends on where you live and your income. If you're low income and in NYS you can get an abortion for free. I haven't done the legwork, but I feel it's safe to assume they don't run that deal in Texas.

Or you can get 100 abortions on Amazon for $21.94.

u/toniMPLS · 1 pointr/Frugal

IKEA has kid-sized hangers. But what I think is best are the flat, fuzzy hangers like this. If you didn't want to buy them all at once, you can find them at Target/Walmart/wherever in smaller, cheaper bundles. I've even gotten some from the dollar store before, though they're not quite as strong as the ones I have from Target.

u/secreteggs · 12 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

Flocked hangers help a lot! Like these.

u/JoyfulStingray · 36 pointsr/AskWomen

Get space saving hangers!! You can fit more clothes in a tiny closet.

Donate clothes you no longer wear.

Separate your Fall/winter from your spring/summer clothes. Put the clothes that are not part of the current season in a space saving bag and store them somewhere else - like under your bed. You are not using them right now, no need for them to be hanging up! :)

u/ljshamz · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

I like the velvet hangers since they prevent your clothes from slipping and stretching.

u/fatchancefatpants · 24 pointsr/TwoXChromosomes

DO IT. They're $8 on amazon

I sent some to Ohio's governor after he signed the heartbeat bill. There's talk of banning insurance companies from paying for abortions and birth control, so many more people in ohio will be receiving them

u/[deleted] · 1 pointr/LifeProTips

This is as simple as it gets without taking up too much room.

u/lingual_panda · 8 pointsr/TwoXChromosomes

Cut them off, and then get these.
