Well, while you have the glue out for the magnet, why not decorate the front? Get a circle of chipboard (ha, no pun intended) and put on your own snarky comment or picture.  Or you could recycle even more....find like a gallon milk jug cap and add batting and fabric, or modge podge pics, or *gasp* flip that cap around and fill it with resin.

This is a really good idea for people who have too many of these hangers, but in MY house, these hangers are GOLD!  I hang pretty much everything except underwear, sleepwear, and around-the-house clothes, so we make use of these.  I even scored a bagful that I found in the fitting room at Wal-Mart, and they said I could have them.  I have even switched out the hanger on some pants I was buying, because I like the hanger on a different pair of pants I wasn't buying! HAHAHAAA!!  Even so, I have always use tose binder clips from the office supply section for chip clips.  They're really strong, yet not hard to open; they all metal, so they don't break easily; they're relatively cheap, like 12 for less than $2, and they're pretty small, so they don't stick out and get pull or knocked off.  They also work wonderfully for reclosing bags that are going into the freezer.  Plastic clips break easily when they're frozen, so these binder clips work muuuch better.  I picked up a gross (144) of them from Staples for like $12 last year, so I'll never be out.

My dad started doing this about eight or nine years ago and always said that he was going to patent the idea..or something like that. Smiley  He passed the idea on to my mother-in-law and she now has them in her house all the time, too.  They work great and they're freeeee - which is fantastic.  Good on you for figuring this one out.  Have you tried the other kind yet?  The kind with the sliding closure piece?  Those work well, too.

SmileyMy daughter did this at college. Since didn't have a kitchenette, she used a whole hanger and hung her chips in the closet. LOL!
