I used to lust over wooden hangers. I thought they were simple and low-maintenance yet they exude a certain sense of elegance. I wanted to buy a few dozen after seeing them at S&R last month but decided against it because I didn’t have enough cash that time. (My credit card was out of the question.) If I remembered correctly, the 5-piece set costs PHP189.75.
The hubby and I dropped by S&R Aseana-Baclaran Branch again last Saturday on our way home to Bacoor to get a quick grab and I suddenly remembered about the wooden hangers. When I saw them again, I thought it was the time to get them. But when my eyes landed on a box of slim hangers made of metal but dressed in olive-colored velvet, I knew right then and there my obsession with wooden hangers has died.
I bought the 50-piece slimline hanger set for PHP999.75 (that’s just almost PHP20 per piece!). The box says it’s under the Real Simple Solutions label of Bed, Bath & Beyond and is originally priced at USD29.99 in the States. I’m not good at Math but I’m sure I got a good deal there. When I unboxed the ultra-thin hangers, I immediately fell in love with them. They look really sturdy and are great space-savers because of their slim body. Each individual hanger has a built-in hook where you could hang your accessories for easy mixing-and-matching with your clothes. You can also use the hooks to put another hanger on it, and another until your clothes have reached the floor of your wardrobe. Cool, isn’t it?
Practical and economical with a beautiful and stylish design, now that’s my ideal hanger! 🙂
