The Thank You Project: #178 (Hangars)

ThankYouIcon_178When I used to move from place to place, I put my clothes in random boxes and kind of just stuffed them in there. I used suitcases to the same effect as well and what ended up happening was that those suitcases and boxes just laid there unpacked for quite awhile. This time when KristaRose and I moved we used these wardrobe boxes that are pretty cool and you can just put clothes in that are still on their hangars (if I sound lame for not even knowing these things existed, I’m guilty as charged!). What I realized from utilizing those boxes is how useful a simple hangar really is. For today, I’m giving a simple thank you to the person who invented hangars.

If you think about a hangar, its one function is to keep your clothes organized and hung. They come in many different colors and shapes. There are pants hangars, clothes hangars, tie hangars, basically for every piece of clothing or accessory you can probably find a hangar for it. I can’t even imagine what I would do if I didn’t have hangars. I can just imagine big piles of clothes just being strewn about. You would lose track of what it is clean and what isn’t. Nothing would actually stay nice and straight, everything would be wrinkled. It might be funny to think about and maybe a bit extreme but it’s just the picture that I have in my mind for it.

So for me, I’m thankful we have these nifty little inventions in order to make our lives easier. It’s better than rummaging through piles to find what to wear!
