Hanger Hamper


Product Information

Empty hangers take up precious room on a closet rod and create a tangled mess when gathered in a pile. Our Hanger Hamper solves the problem neatly by collecting wire or plastic hangers so you can take them to the laundry room or dry cleaner for recycling. Best of all, it helps save some of the millions of hangers that go into landfills every year. It's collapsible so it won't take up extra space when empty.

  • Accommodates up to 100 wire hangers
  • Accommodates 30-40 plastic hangers depending on size
  • Integrated shoulder straps



  • 20" x 9-3/4" x 10" h

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Too many hangers Somewhere I saw a picture of this rectangular holder. I went to that big box store that sells stuff you didn't even know existed. But guess what?! Not this rectangular holder. I received an email from the Container store so I chanced it and put it in the locate section. BINGO. Do you own too many hangers - most you don't use but will still hold onto - or forget to take to the dry cleaners?? Yes you - be like me - buy 2. I probably need a third.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good item, but could be better It's just a tad on the small size and the handles are too long. Would be even better if it had a cover/top. But it performs as needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product! On my second one! This product is amazing. We have a ton of hangers around our home and this keeps them neat and organized. We have a habit now of taking a shirt/pants off the hanger and putting it right in the Hanger Hamper. We had our first one for so long and used it so much and wore it out that we went and bought the same one to replace it! Didn't know what I was missing until I bought one of these!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Takes the mess out of hangers This hanger hamper is great for storing hangers. Keeps them neat and takes up only a little more space than the hanger so they do not slip around. I wish they made one for pant/skirt hangers also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DOES NOT FIT VELVET HANGERS I love the idea but only one problem is it doesn't velvet hangers. My velvet hangers are too big. What a bummer, I have to return it. I wish they made this in a larger size which I'd gladly pay for more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I purchased 4 of these, 1 for plastic hangers, 1 for wood hangers, 1 for wire hangers and 1 for padded hangers. It keeps them all together nicely without fussing with trying to detangle them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A must have!! Even if you are the only one in your house/apartment, this is a must have. I had struggled for years with hangers of all types and almost lost it more than once. With the hanger hamper, my problems with tangled hangers are over. I put the hangers in the hamper, put the hamper by the dryer, and have "no iron" clothes right out of the dryer and on to the hanger!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does as advertised Great way to store extra hangers. It's a tight fit - but that's how they don't tangle! I'm sure it will loosen up a bit over time as well. Love it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay but It's a great idea and I agree with one reviewer that this needs to have a zipped cover. The other beef I have with it is that it does not easily contain large men's hangers. I'm not using this to take recycled hangers to the dry cleaner's. I'm using this to store my extra hangers, and I have many. Some don't fit. And storing means you want a cover.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best purchase I ever made Always need something to keep my hangers in order and now I never have to stop and organize them. No more dropping of hangers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Only one problem Very useful product for tidying up the closet when you have little space to spare. Corrals my wooden and tubular plastic hangers I don't use but don't want to discard. No problem fitting the larger-gauge plastic ones or wooden ones with a skirt clip insert instead of a trouser bar. The contaier fits nicely on a shelf out of the way or in a corner of the closet. There's only one problem: I wish it had a zippered lid! Online order with store pickup was a breeze.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Hanger Hamper I was so tired of digging for hangers or using up valuable rod space and happened upon the hanger hamper. This is the best invention. I can put all my hangers in the hamper, and when I am ready to do laundry, I just carry it downstairs with the clothing hamper. The hardest part was getting my husband to put the hangers all in the same directions. :) My daughter, who is in college, saw it in my closet and wanted one for herself so I am back to pick up another one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hanger Heaven This hanger hamper is the perfect solution: simple, effective and convenient. I use it to collect hangers in the closet as clothes are worn, then throw it over my shoulder with the handy straps and transport it to the laundry room. Saves the tangled mess of any other method I have tried and is a time saver too. So simple--so great!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too small--by a fraction of an inch This bag will NOT hold those wonderful slim, flocked hangers that now fill my closet. It will hold wire hangers, plain plastic hangers, decorative metal hangers and "department store"-style plastic hangers. A "department store"-style suit hanger will just fit if you rotate the clips. A fraction of an inch would have made all the difference. I would recommend it only with this warning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Who knew? I purchased a hanger hamper thingy that holds neatly all my hangers instead of having these all over the closet/floor or where ever unused but needed for the future hangers go. I LOVE the container store because only there would something this convenient be sold at a reasonable price. I could spend hours wandering the isles and imagining an entire apartment with purchases from this place. Additionally I recently purchased another bottle of the cedar lavender spray that I love and the scent keeps the moths out of the winter closet. Thanks so much!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from seemingly unnecessary but makes a big difference This hamper falls under the category of organizational products that make a much bigger difference than expected. Instead of trying to wrangle my hangers into a box or a brown bag, this hamper keeps my massive pile of hangers beautifully organized, untangled and shockingly compact - for a very reasonable price. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Idea A perfect addition for any room in the home to collect empty hangers. Mine would always get tangled up if put in an empty basket or would wind up tossed on the floor in my kids room. I only bought one, but I intend to get a few more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solves a problem Great way to sort cumbersome tangled hangers. I don't use wire hangers at home but the plastic with metal hook hangers, or any type I've tried, drove me crazy jumbled together in a bag. This hamper eliminates the clutter in one handy carryall. Marketed for returning wire hangers to cleaners as well - think that would be useful too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You won't regret buying this!!!! Recently moved to an old row house with little closet space so I can no longer hang my entire wardrobe. I don't want to toss all those nice extra hangers so I keep them neatly stored in the hamper. Nothing is worse than a pile of jumbled up hangers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from genius Whoever invented this is a genius. It holds hangers perfectly without them falling over other hangers, which is what happened when I put my hangers in a box. Plus this is super easy to carry to and from the laundry room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hanger Hamper I have very limited closet space. Before purchasing the Hanger Hamper I had my extra hangers in bags taking up valuable floor space. I liked the first one so much (and filled it up), I bought a second one. I now have more space in the closet!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally!! I have been dealing with a cardboard box that I've been stuffing all my hangers in. Getting hangers out of it is a huge pain because they all get interlocked with each other. This hamper has saved the day!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Affordable and Does Its Job Well This item was affordable and does its job well. No more hangers all over the place. Now they stay nice and neat in this handy little hamper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Every Closet Should Have One I am very pleased with this purchase because the Hanger Hamper possesses a sturdy, lightweight design that makes it ideal for storing hangers while they are unused and for transporting hangers to the laundry room to be used, respectively.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not such a silly product Who would have thought a hanger hamper would be so worthwhile? I bought it on a test...and quite frankly, it's so handy.
Date published: 2013-04-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from great I didn't know how badly I needed this until I used it. My empty hangers no longer get caught on other hangers when i pull something out. They are no longer constantly falling when i slide something over. I also have much more room to actually hang my clothing and can now find empty hangers when I need them!

What about storing pants hangers? The type of hanger that is more straight but with clips.

I would like to be able to store store hangers with clips separately for easier use in the laundry room. Do you carry anything that would work well for pants/suit type hangers?
Asked by: Barby
The Hanger Hamper is designed to store shirt and suit hangers only. This product is not designed to hold pant hangers. You may want to try our Clear Storage Boxes as an alternative storage option. Please view the Product Recommendations below for additional details.

Will Huggable Hangers fit in this? How about the regular plastic hangers?

Asked by: Ayecee
Yes, Huggable Hangers will fit with just a bit extra room on the side. Most tubular hangers are 17" wide so they would fit in the hamper as well.
