Don't Buy It Until We Try It: Space Saver Bags

Posted: Updated:

Some argue that clutter is comforting while others say it's stressful, having too many things and no where to put them. If you are living in a comfortable size apartment, organization is key. Especially if there's only one closet, a very compact closet.

As a professional organizer Julie Kinworthy says tools like the Space Saver Bags could help.

"It's definitely a good idea if you have a very small space and things you're not gonna use very often," says Kinworthy.

After looking at the space, we decided two large bags would hold six sweatshirts, four sweaters and four sets of flannel pajamas.

Both bags managed to hold all of the clothing. The directions state that the clothes should not cross the dotted "STOP" line. Then seal the bags with the plastic applicator, making sure the entire top is sealed.

Then plug in the vacuum, pop open the suction tab, apply the hose and watch the bag shrink.

Testing out the durability, I opened the freshly sealed bag.

One of the draw backs from the space saver bag that I encountered was that the clothes do come out a little wrinkled. Giving you more work.

"If they get any kind of little puncture, then they're basically a glorified Ziplock bag at that point," says Kinsworthy.

The vacuumed bags tend to take up a little less space. Depending on the material, some even lay flat. Allowing more room for other things.

Although the plastic is somewhat fragile, the bags can stand large amounts of clothing. The storage ability is a plus. I'd give this a thumbs up.

You can find the vacuum sealed bags online by Googling, vacuum sealed clothing bags. Prices range from $12 to $40.
