wonder hanger review

a couple weekends ago, bill and i realized that something had to be done about his closet.  we have lived here for three years now (can you believe it?) and i don't think he has ever been able to get to all his clothes since we moved in, due to the bad design of his closet.

he ended up bringing out all his clothes for us to sort through.  of course, we couldn't just throw all the clothes we were going to keep back in his closet to get lost again.  wonder hanger to the rescue!

thanks to the wonder hanger, bill now has access to all his clothes, and they are nicely organized according to type.  he is actually wearing more than the same two shirts and pants now!  i am seeing him wear clothes i didn't even know he owned.

the wonder hanger is basically a set of two plastic rings with a plastic bar in between them that holds 5 hangers (wood, metal or plastic all work).  when you need to get to your clothes, you hook both rings on your closet rod and your clothes are neatly lined up for your perusal.  when you are done, you simply unhook one side and let your clothes hang vertically.  this means they take up less space, giving you an excuse to shop some more to fill your closet!

each package comes with 8 wonder hangers that each old five items.  what this essentially means is that 40 items take up the space of eight items hung up the old way.

bill really liked being able to add more space to his closet, as well as keep things neatly organized.  what we have noticed, however, in spite of the claim to "hold up to 5 heavy winter jackets," the rings on the bars are stretched out quite a bit.  we aren't sure how long they are going to last.  i would like something like this to keep space available in our coat closet, even if we have to store all our winter coats in there.

online you can buy a wonder hanger package and get one free for $9.99 plus shipping and handling.  you can also find the wonder hangers at walmart, target, cvs and bed, bath and beyond.

overall i would say the concept is good.  for my clothes, which are lightweight, i wouldn't worry too much about the stretching of the rings, but i am curious to see how long they last for bill.

just for those of you who pay attention to this kind of thing, that is a picture of my closet in its current state of disorganization (i'm embarrassed to admit).  obviously, i need a set of wonder hangers for myself.  i forgot to take a before picture of bill's closet, but, believe me when i say, it was much, much scarier!

this is a mamabuzz review.  i received a free package of wonder hangers from wonder hanger for the purpose of this review.  regardless, the opinions expressed here are purely my own.  i have received no other compensation for this review.
