    Hi, I’m Nora. Like a lot of people in New York, my fashion sense is…somewhat eccentric.

    But since I can’t store clothes in my kitchen (I wouldn’t mind, but my roommates might), I decided to try some tiered hangers for tops as well as for pants and skirts that are designed to optimize vertical space.,

    And so I bought these "blouse trees" from Jet ($9.84) and "trouser/skirt" hangers from Amazon ($13.08 for a two-pack) to see what they could do for me and my bursting-at-the-seams closet. Each pants hanger holds four bottoms, and each shirt hanger holds six tops.

    As a vintage seller and clotheshorse myself, I can never have enough storage space.

    And I’ve realized that my current setup, pictured above — all my fancy-ish pieces hanging next to each other along a single rail — isn’t helping things. (Not pictured: a 9-foot-long dresser whose drawers I can barely shut.)

    Combining my pieces of clothing onto a single, long hanger drastically reduces the amount of precious horizontal space they take up along my closet rail (by five-sixths and three-quarters, respectively).

    Yes, it's really that simple!

    Here's what my closet looks like these days:

    It’s not like Extreme Makeover: Closet Edition or anything, but now I can easily push the remaining hangers to the side for a better view of outfit options — not to mention give my clothes some breathing room so they aren't as apt to wrinkle by just hanging out, doin' their thing — and I didn’t even have to use “KonMari” as a verb.

    If at this point you, too, are asking yourself, "Why have I waited so long to buy these?!" you'll be comforted to know that this is a judgment-free space — and that there's still time for you to save your overwhelmed wardrobe!

    The only downside? These hangers don’t have any padding.

    This won’t affect common fabrics like flannel or denim. To protect fragile fabrics like silk or chiffon, though, pick up a length of foam to cut and place between the hangers and your garments.

    So now you know! Happy organizing.
