That Closetful of Hangers

There always seems to be an abundance of hangers in the house. Packing up the winter clothes and purging the closet of old clothes will often free up many hangers. The type of hanger will depend on its other use. Wire hangers can be bent into many other useful shapes. Plastic and wooden hangers are what they are in shape but can be converted into other useful tools.
