If you own clothing, chances are you’ve come across a lot of hangers. A lot.

This DIY is such a cinch and makes use of the cheap plastic hangers that come with everything from underpants to scarves.

Of course, they come in handy for keeping my shirts and skirts organized, but every time I blink it seems I have accumulated ten more.

Snap off the clips and reuse them as handy chip clips!

Also use the clips to secure cereal bags, bread sacks, frozen veg, etc.

This is the perfect trick to not only get some new life out of your plastic clip hangers but to extend the shelf life of food. Now that is sensibly savvy! So go raid your closets (I think I have two or three of these hangers on my bedroom floor right now) and start snapping away.
