Keeping your bedroom's small closet organized is essential to maintaining a functional space. Hangers are central to this, as they're required for storing clothes in an orderly fashion. However, while hangers can tidy up your wardrobe, they also need to be neatly stored away when not in use. Leaving the empty ones in a bin or hanging idly on your closet bar can make the space look sloppy. Fortunately, TikTok creator Paula Bee demonstrates how a couple of paper towel holders and a wooden plank from Dollar Tree can create a hanger organizer that will rival anything you could buy at an expensive department store.

A hanger stacker could be helpful for people with limited space in their closets, as it may create more room for storing clothes. Additionally, instead of keeping your hangers in a large bin where they could get jumbled together, make a DIY organizer that could fit in a small corner of the wardrobe. Also, having a designated space for hangers keeps you from having to sift through miles of clothes to look for an empty one to hang your newest outfit on, which could save you time. Hanger stackers typically retail from $15 and can even reach exorbitant prices like $45 on Amazon. If convenience and affordability are your priorities, then you have to try this neat hack that promises to organize your closet in a budget-friendly way. However, keep in mind that this will only work on hangers with a bottom bar.

How to make a hanger stacker

Building a portable hanger organizer will require these items from Dollar Tree: a pair of paper towel holders, a plank of wood, and super glue (if you don't already have it). You'll also need four small screws, spray paint, and a screwdriver from around your home. According to TikTok creator @craftwithbee, start by spray painting the plank any color of your choice. Once the plank is dry, cover half of the bottom of each paper towel holder with glue and fix them halfway onto both ends of the plank. Also attach a couple of screws on each side to keep the paper towel holders in place, and you're done! This will give you a unique hanger organizer stacker where you can store your hangers until you need them.

The video creator revealed that this hack only cost her $4 to build by getting items from Dollar Tree and using what she already had. If you don't have a dollar store near you, purchase towel holders from IKEA for $3 each and a wooden plank from Lowe's for under $2 (however, you'll need to cut it down to size). Further, you can spend an additional $8 on self-adhesive wall brackets on Amazon and hang the hanger stacker for easier access. That way, you won't have to bend down to grab a hanger like you would if the holder was kept on the floor.
