Amongst other wedding plans, part of my time has been spent moving non-essential clothes and other items that aren't needed daily or at this time. I've mentioned this before...Christmas stuff, winter clothes, etc. I've also mentioned how reorganizing David's house has also taken up some of my time...that includes his closet. Well, the master closet. Soon to be "our" closet.
As I was moving in wool blazers, slacks, hoodies, jeans and boots...I remembered my hatred. My hatred for these.
David, like many other people, has a small collection of these wire hangers that reside in his closet. I don't. They're very flimsy, bend easily, cut into your clothing, clothes slide off them and and and and...I just don't like them. I used to feel bad about not keeping wire hangers, but then I found a solution: my dry-cleaners "recycles" wire hangers. So, every time I drop off some skirts, slacks or blazers I also drop off a handful of wire hangers courtesy of my last pick-up. You might want to check with your local dry-cleaners to see if they do the same.
What do I use instead of wire hangers? As you can probably guess I love using plastic hangers. My closet is full of different variations and colors of these...though, they're mostly white.
I know this is weird, but I don't mind being considered a "hanger snob." And it's not like it's an expensive indulgence...just this past weekend David and I bought some more from Target priced at $2.99 for a package of 20 hangers.
The weird things you do and talk about in preparation for marriage and moving in with someone...
