  2. Thank you very much! A great article with helpful ideas/information. I happen to have hangers I ordered and a box of the clips to use for skirts or pants that are not in use. (I ordered too many.) I need to frame/hang 20-13×19 posters and that idea is perfect! I had mat boards in my cart to the tune of $69 but didn’t want to spend the money. The posters are inspirational quotes for my workout room. I also like the Japanese washi tape idea, too. Looked into that but discarded the idea since I’d still have to spend money. Well, I’ve already bought those hangers and the clips so I can use them. This article made my day!
