I have my clothes divvied up into three main hanger groups. Let's just say that suits and sport coats belong on wood hangers, therefore they are not included in this debate. I do not use the multi-rod pants hangers as I have ample space to store my pants on seperate hangers. However, I urge those of you who do use the multi-pronged approach to share your experiences, both positive and negative.
Anyway, I store my shirts on plastic hangers. I find that compared to wire hangers, the thicker plastic tends to support the weight better and prevents a sharp crease at the top of the shirt.
My pants, on the other hand, are stored on wire hangers with the cardboard rod, similar to those you would get from a dry cleaner. They certainly offer more horizontal support than the plastic ones, which are prone to sag. As far as I'm concerned, the thin, one piece metal hangers are utterly useless.
If anyone has any new ideas for hanging clothes that I have not touched upon, feel free to share then here. Before anyone asks, I do fold some of my clothes, but that is not the topic at hand. Thanks.

I rarely use hangers. I have about 8 or 9 day of supply of clothes that I just keep rotating. So they are usually just kept in the floor of the laundry room after I wash and dry them. I then throw whatever I am going to wear that day in the dryer for about 10 min to de-wrinkle them and I am good to go.

Srbmod - can you please elaborate on these "thick" plastic hangers and comment on their propensity to sag. A link to the ones you use would be great. Wire hangers look so cheesy, but the sag resistence makes them invaluable, to me, at least.
Armitage - I respect your laziness! However, I find that it's so easy to pick out an outfit when everything is hanging before you.

Well, after many many hours of technical considerations of hanging my clothes I realized I could just throw them on the floor AND they would be warm after I had them in the dryer for a minute or two. Quite an amazing system I have going on here.

The thin ones are about as thick as a pencil, while the thick ones are about as thick as a finger. With that extra thickness comes more strength, and none of my thick hangers have any sort of sag at all.
