      Hey sweetie, I totally get where you are coming from as an empty nester with 6 grown children. I shuffled things such as this around my house for years before it hit me...why are we keeping hundreds of extra hangers? What exactly is the need? Even if life happens and "A" child must return home for a bit longer on thier feet again they will not need the hangers from ALL the children!!! Let them go and reclaim your space (valuable real estate) in your home for other pursuits of yours and your spouses!!! Have an awesome day!!
