Get organized: This sturdy solution to a closetful of jumbled hangers is $20

Its triangular design makes it easy to stash in a corner, and reviewers use it to tame all sorts of clutter.

Are you facing down a closetful of clothes without space for any additions? Looking to swap out your fleece and flannel for warm-weather garb, but left with a ton of hangers dangling in your wardrobe? We can relate to the crammed-closet conundrum. Searching for inspiration on Instagram can backfire too — those perfectly pared-down closets feel unattainable. But here's one easy way to get the minimalist closet of your dreams: This $20 Carpenter Woods Hanger Organizer, which stores up to 75 hangers. Use it to give your closets the overhaul they deserve — you'll wonder what you ever did without it.

Un-cram that closet once and for all.

Everyone accumulates stray hangers, especially as they stow seasonal items. Naked hangers look junky when left teeter-tottering in the closet, and they become a tangled mess thrown in a pile — but you shouldn't toss them. You might need them for guests or after your next big shopping spree. This neat triangular bag lets you tuck them in a corner until they're needed.

"Storing hangers is such a pain," said a five-star fan. "I cannot believe that I never knew this product existed. ... Very sturdy, easy to assemble. Don't be alarmed if it seems a touch small for larger hangers — part of it being canvas means it can bend and stretch a bit to accommodate hangers of all sizes. And I love the long handles to help carry it from room to room as needed."

"Doesn’t flop!" added another. "Holds several hangers well, nice and sturdy and the best part is it doesn’t 'flop' down, which was a complaint that I read in reviews on others. It has three rods that slide into pockets inside the bag and closes with Velcro. Definitely a good buy!"

It's not just for the closet, either. "Neatens up the laundry room," wrote a pleased reviewer. "Corrals hangers of all types and keeps them in one spot. Sit it on the floor, counter or hang it."

Shoppers who think outside the box have found alternate uses for this triangular contraption, including storing sewing supplies and transporting wire hangers back to the dry cleaner.

"Outstanding quality! So glad I got this," reported a buyer. "I had seen others and they looked so flimsy and cheap. I was going to make one myself until I saw this ... It is heavy and waterproof ... and the inserts for the sides are marvelous. I am not using it for hangers, but I needed a corner basket by my sewing machine to hold items that need [to be] mended. This is the only thing that would fit in the space."

The word perfect keeps coming up in reviews, no matter the use: "Perfect for recycling wire dry-cleaning hangers," said another happy shopper. "This bag had the best reviews and is a quality item! I was looking for something to store all my wire dry-cleaning hangers. It has rods to support it vertically and handles to carry it to the dry cleaner when full. But it also looks good in my closet."

This handy helper would also serve as excellent corner toy storage in a playroom, or hang it on a hook to collect towels in the bathroom (it's waterproof). And just imagine what it could do for your car's trunk.

Some reviewer notes to take into account?

"Took a bit to figure out how to get the supports in, and there's no lid to protect contents from dust," wrote a generally satisfied user. "But overall this is an excellent solution to wooden hangar storage. I just wish there was a [slightly] bigger one that could accommodate my wooden hangers with the pants clip extension."

"It does need to be a bit larger, as you can't just drop the hangers in without finagling them in the corners," said a final reviewer, adding, "Great concept. Nice quality."

This sturdy bag can sit in a corner and hold toys, towels and anything else that's cluttering your home — not just hangers.

Each one has an impressive 60-liter capacity, along with see-through front panels so you won't forget what you stashed in them. 

"I love the 'peek-a-boo' window and how I can now stack, store and retrieve my items with ease," said one fan. "If you're like me and have many items stored in various places in an unstructured manner, I highly recommend this product."
