Ziploc Space Bags - Facing The Final Frontier


This is the testimony of Toronto Teacher Mom, her continuing mission to explore strange new storage solutions, to seek out new space and new organization, to boldly go where no husband has gone before.

Apparently today is the first day of spring. With the arrival of the season is the inevitable need for me to get into spring cleaning mode by packing away the bulky blankets and comforters, and trying to find somewhere to store them all for the next several months. Luckily, I was sent the new Ziploc Space Bags collection to help de-clutter our home and take better advantage of the little storage space we have.


First, I tried the Ziploc Hanging Suit Bag. I decided to store a number of my husbands shirts and sweaters that he hasn't worn in years. Many of them were hanging on a thick wooden hanger so I transferred them to wire or plastic hangers to save some space. I maxed it out at ten of my husband's tops, as per the directions, but I probably could have fit a few more.


Step 1: Hang the clothes inside the bag.

Step 2: Zip up the bag.
Step 3: Open the valve.
Step 4: Use a vacuum to suck out the air.


It was very easy to do and I was done in about five minutes. The amount of space I cleared up in our shared (yes, shared!) closet is remarkable. So you know what this means? More space to fill as I try to update my wardrobe!


Next, I used an extra large Ziploc Space Bag to store a queen-size comforter. It was quite difficult trying to zip it closed but once I managed to do so, I couldn't believe how much the bag shrunk! The thickness of the sealed comforter was thinner than the Ziploc packaging. I could easily store the comforter in a dresser drawer.


Ziploc Space Bags are going to come in real handy this spring. Among the product line is an assortment of travel bags which I think will save many travelers much hassle. Just compress, roll out the air and you're ready to go. I also think they'd be perfect to take with us if we end up going camping this summer.

  5. I have a spare bedroom that I am hoping to turn into a craft/sewing room so that is the room I would de-clutter. It is the room where I store seasonal bedding and clothes so these bags would free up a lot of space in there.
