Pop bottle top -- Hangers?




I had a Big problem

My Beautygirl needed to be able to hang "whole" outfits up for school. If we do not have complete outfits, there is a fight in the morning....no thank you!

So I wanted to attach a skirt/pant hanger to a regular wooden hanger. But I could not find any good solutions. I looked on line and they wanted a buck each for the connectors.... again, no thank you!

I found my solution. The top of a soda can.... You know, the little pop top tabs.







They worked like a charm!
















See how they line up so nicely. Now the clothing is not all bunched up. The skirts/pants are hanging in plain sight. The tops are also in full view. This is really important when you are dealing with pre-teen girls!

This is great when you go away. The tabs do not take a lot of room up in your bag and you take some wire hangers with you, you can get everything hung up.

Thank you for this organization tip. You certainly thought of a very innovative way (a nice way to apply in organizing clothes in closets Bergen for instance). This absolutely works when you want pairs to go together without causing much mess. This will really help out mothers with teens. Again, thank you for this post.

What colorful Hangers direct, I hope to find on the market, but I think it's best to learn to do them myself.

Hi!

I'm Christina, a writer for Buzzfeed, and I'd love to use your photo for a post on ways to create space for your room. I'll also link it out to your tutorial. We'd also be interested in using photos/tutorials for future posts. Let me know if this is possible, and if so, how you'd like to be credited.

Thanks!
Christina

Hi Christina - Absolutely. You can use any one photo as long as it links back like you said. The credit should go to "Tara from Idea Bottle" because she's the contributor who added it here. That's how we'd like any of our articles credited - "author" and "site name".

Thanks! We're excited to read your article. :)
