Wonder Hanger {Review}

Wonder Hanger

When we moved into our new house last August, we knew we were making some concessions in certain areas to gain big payoffs in others. We gained a fabulous treed lot with a shallow wood behind us in which the boys could play and explore 'til their hearts content. We gained the ability to plant a hearty fruit, vegetable, and herb garden that will have us eating fresh, hearty fair through the fall. We also gained a warm, cozy home with many of the fixtures, features, and color palettes that we prefer. In order to gain all of these wonderful things, we decided to make a concession in an area that is near and dear to the collective heart of this family of 6...closet space! As you can imagine, a family of our size accumulates a lot of stuff and storage of all kinds is key. Needless to say, I have tried all kinds of closet organizational tools in place to maximize the space we have available.

Wonder Hanger

So, when given the opportunity to review The Wonder Hanger, I jumped at the chance. I had seen these organizational tools advertised in numerous infomercials and wanted to give them a try first hand. I must admit that they are much sturdier than I had expected. Made from a heavy weight plastic, these babies can hold up to 20-25lbs. without bowing or breaking! Some assembly is required to pop the hook portions of the hanger into the "rod" and it take a bit of elbow grease to get them in place. As far as I'm concerned, this is actually a positive because that means they are less likely to pop out on accident ;) In terms of performance, I found that they functioned exactly as depicted on tv...easy to use and definitely saved on space. The only critique I have is that in closets that are pre-designed with space saving shelving (you know, the kind with 2 shorter hanging areas on top of each other instead of one long space), the unit is too long when extended into the space saving position. However, overall this mama gives The Wonder Hanger a thumbs up (I currently have 3 of them in our stuffed to the max coat closet!).

Here is what the company has to say:
The Wonder Hanger is an affordable tool that's great for Spring Cleaning! This cascading clothes organizer increases closet space by enabling you to stack clothes vertically. Each Wonder Hanger holds 5 wood, metal, or plastic hangers. There are 8 hangers to a package - enough to hang 40 garments. The open-mouth design allows you to easily add or remove your jackets, skirts, pants, and shirts. Supporting up to 20 lbs., it can hold up to 5 heavy winter jackets.

You can use it to group complete outfits or similar items, organize by colors or seasons, and hang handbags or belts. It retails for $9.99 and can be purchased at major retail chains including Target, Walmart, Bed Bath and Beyond, and CVS and online at
