Unlike a lot of women, I don't have a lot of clothes. I know women who keep everything from their very first pair of jeans and bridesmaid gown to the sexy cheerleader outfit that no longer fits! About once or twice a year, I weed out my closet and give the stuff away to charity or sell on eBay. I don't keep clothes at all. That's because I live in a small apartment, I have a small closet and I became a mother and nothing now fits.
Another reason is I like to keep my clothes hangers an inch apart. This allows the clothes to breathe. When air circulates, mildew doesn't form on your clothes. Also, when your clothes aren't squished together, they don't get rumpled in storage. So if I kept everything I ever bought, there is no way I can keep my hangers an inch apart!
If you follow me on Twitter, you'd know I've been agonizing for weeks about finding wooden hangers. My hangers looked like this:
My friendly followers on Twitter gave advice from Japan Home and Saizen to eBay and ordering all the way from IKEA Singapore. One evening, on my way to the MRT-Ayala station, I passed through SM Makati and just decided to see if they had the hangers that I wanted. Eureka! They did!
|I bought 4 boxes. Yep, that's 80 hangers!|
|At only P600 for a box of 20, it's sooo cheap!|
|Mmm, you can smell the wood!|
So much better, right? One inch apart! Consistent look. Clean. Organized. I am so happy!
