If you have clothing items that you can't hang up on a regular clothing hanger (like rompers and strapless dresses), you can use a skirt hanger. Make sure you get the kind with adjustable clips so it fits any type of clothing piece you own! They can be easily purchased at a local Walmart or Target!
I use these hangers too! You can get them free if you shop at Target, Macy's and they ask if you want to keep the hangers when purchasing the clothes!
I've found a use for those clip type hangers that come with new pants or skirts from the store. I use them for hanging my skirts in the closet. But don't like to use them for my pants because of the clip mark that's left on them.
So I keep them handy in the laundry room. Now when I wash my slippers but don't want them to go through the dryer, I clip one slipper to each end of the hanger. I also use it to hang my steam mop pads after washing. Also, any unmatched socks that come out of the washer or dryer get clipped to one.
In the closet it's a great way to store scarves and sash type belts. During cold weather I have crocheted scarves and matching hats and mittens. I clip the mittens to one end, hats to the other end and drape the scarf over the middle, keeping each set together and easy to grab.
I love to feed the wild birds so I hang one of these hangers outside with a small bird treat on either end. I disguise the hangers with silk foliage and flowers. The birds love it.

I used to throw them away myself, but my sister clued me in to many uses for them. They are great for hanging out small hand washables too! I had not thought about the birdseed, but now I will try that as well.
I use the pants hangers. to hang up my recipe while I am preparing the recipe. I hook the hanger on the cabinet door above the counter, now the printed recipe is at eye level as I work. You can also hang small cook books, if they are not to heavy.
Usually department stores give you the hanger that comes with shorts, especially children's. The ends have the plastic with the metal slider. The entire part can be snapped off easily and reused for snack bags and such. By ceil
