1. Put a Lid on It

ThaiTrick

How many times have you heard piles of pots and pans come crashing down from within your cabinets? It's time to take control of your kitchen, and this hack is the answer. Mold a set of hangers to perfectly hold your cookware lids and hang on the inside of your cabinet door. Bid farewell to any cluttered mess!

2. Belt, Tie, and Necklace Organizer

ThaiTrick

Hangers aren't just for clothes. Other items in your closet can get better use from these nifty tools – all it takes is a little bending. Creating peaks in the hanger's bottom wire makes a perfect place to store ties, belts, and necklaces.

3. Scarf Storage Saver

ThaiTrick

Scarves can be so difficult to store. Hanging them up is best to keep out wrinkles, but too often they slip off the arm. Shower curtain hooks are a great solution for this. Attach them to the bottom of a hanger and loop your scarves through. This will make your closet more organized and pretty!

4. Hanging Garden Planters

ThaiTrick

We bet you never thought to move your extra hangers outside! Neither did we... until we saw this. Pressing two hangers together can create the perfect basket for a small, hanging plant. Your garden has never been so creative!

5. Toss It in the... Hanger Trash Bin

ThaiTrick

This hack is perfect for camping, tailgating, or anywhere you don't have a trash can on site. Use two hangers to create a sturdy frame and wrap a plastic grocery bag around the rim. It's not a permanent solution, but it works great when you're in a bind.

If you liked these life hacks, you'll love the rest ThaiTrick thought up! Be sure to watch the video below to see how it's done:
