Clothes hangers are an efficient way of keeping your clothes organized in your wardrobe. Some people even have separate wardrobes for different days of the week.

As the clothes start piling up, you gradually run out of space.

To get more space you either discard the older clothes, that don’t fit well, or use clothes hangers that are efficient enough to do their original job and still give you enough space in your closet to have a good stock of clothes. Here are some of the tips and tricks you may use to achieve a high level of efficiency:

Adding loops of string to the hanger

This is a very simple and cost-effective method, and it doesn’t require a lot of accessories.

Things you will need

  1. A regular plastic hanger
  2. Piece of string


  • Take a piece of string 12-15 inches long.
  • Tie it on one side of the middle of the hanger.
  • Make a loop on that side and pass the other end to the other side.
  • Now, create another loop at the free end and you’re done.

With two (or more) loops of string attached to your hanger, you will be able to hang multiple clothes at the place of 1 hanger. One great thing about this method is that it doesn’t require a lot of time and the required items are readily available. That means you won’t have to spend hours adjusting your closet.

Using Metallic Hooks

This is a relatively expensive method compared to the earlier one. However, the results are astounding.

Things you will need

  1. A regular plastic hanger
  2. Metallic hooks


  • Take a couple of metallic hooks.
  • Place each hook at each end of your hanger.
  • If they don’t stay at their place, use some adhesive.

Compared to using string loops, this method has the advantage of reliability. The strings (if not of good quality) can get damaged or split into two pieces in case a lot of weight is applied. There is also a possibility of distortion of your hanger’s original shape.

Using Pegs

Pegs can be a great option. They can be attached at the bottom of the hangers for you to hang multiple objects. These objects can be pants, skirts or ties. This will give you immense space for getting in the extra load of new clothes you get every season.
