Hi, I'm Shari Feldman Krandel, and I'm a senior designer at valet custom cabinets and closets. And I want to show you what if my hacks for long hang items, um, in my closet, you can see I've got this bulkhead. There is a truss running up here and, um, it limited my space that I'd have for long hang. I needed to maximize as much double hang as possible because I love my clothes. Um, and so these, I decided to do all knee length so I could have two more shelves above them and in so doing, I don't have room for my Maxis anymore. So what I do instead is this hack where I hang my maxi on a hanger, and then I drape it over some sort of a pant hanger next to it. And so you can see how it hangs like that without dragging on the ground. Now, this one is just really long. Now this one, um, is a halter type. And so it doesn't hang nicely, um, on a hanger like this one does. So this one, I just fold over the hanger and you can see it just misses the bottom. I've plenty of more room here, though. I could fold it over, but this is just a Jersey material. This is just a polyester material. It's not going to wrinkle. And then I get more bang for my buck with my hanging space is what it boils down to. It's all about maximizing space and I love a puzzle and this is the best way to solve this puzzle. So my favorite hack is, uh, just a pant hanger folded over, or even using two hangers, um, to, um, take care of the garment. And it's safely stored and ready for you when you want to wear it and look fabulous.
