Don't get all hung up about it

So, the moving-in process is still going on, but I can say that we have the closets arranged and most of our clothes are where they will stay for the duration. Both Coco and I purged a lot of stuff in the transition, and we're storing things a little differently than we used by re-purposing some of the of our furniture, and I'd guess that we are folding more clothes and hanging fewer. As a result, we have wound up with a few clothes hangers left over.

There were three white mini-hangers, for delicate stuff...


and four white heavy-duty hangers, for pants or jackets...


...and six fancy white plastic skirt hangers with clips...



...and 17 standard white pastic hangers...
 

...adn another 26 black ones...


...and a whole pile of them in various colors.


There were five suit hangers, both wooden and plastic...


..and six of those fancy wooden pants hangers...


...and three of those crappy clear plastic  kind...


...and this doohickey for neckties.


So the question is: WTF?  Did we actually have a bunch of extra hangers that we didn't notice? Did the hangers reproduce in response to the stress of moving? Or did we really shift over 100 garments, either getting rid of them or storing them differently? And if that last circumstance is the case, how did we wind up with so many extra clothes? And why were we hanging them all up in the first place?

Of course, this whole affair also raises the question of what to do with these. I wouldn't imagine that we'll need more than ten percent of this surplus, and that leaves a lot of hangers to dispose over. I'm not sure even Value Village could absorb this donation - we might have to drive around tossing bundles into Goodwill and St. Vincent de Paul as well. I am half-tempted to throw them in a barrel with all our outdated pharmaceuticals, set it on fire, and electrocute it, hoping to create a new polymer-based life form, but even if that worked, it would probably get loose and eat Fairhaven, and we all know where that would lead.

In the meantime, if y'all need any hangers, let me know, and I can hook you up. First one's free.

Wooden Clothes Hangers from Bizarkdeal

I purchased the J.S. Hangers because I was renovating my closet. I wanted to do away with the wire and plastic hangers I had accumulated. To my surprise the hangers are study, durable and made to last. I didn't have any problems hanging jackets, shirts, slacks, jeans, sweaters, dresses and skirts. I like that the hangers swivel so you never have to worry if your hangers are going in the same direction. Oh, I must mention the wood gain style is nice and elegant with a smooth finish. A nice feature about these hangers is that it can hold those spaghetti strap dresses and blouses because of the u-shaped bar. It's a great buy for the quality, look and feel of these hangers. I plan on buying more as I'm in the mood to redo all of my closets.
