Winter is coming to a close soon. (I personally can't wait!)
Soon you might be taking those bulky winter coats or winter comforter sets and storing them away until next Fall.
Here's a truly Quick Tip For A Better Space:
In order to save lot's of space, I recommend purchasing vacuum storage bags, more commonly known as "Space Bags".
Vacuum storage bags are a simple way to make space for what matters most...other stuff!
Use them for out-of-season clothing, especially those bulky winter coats, extra or out-of-season bed linens and guest-bedding. Don't forget to include the pillows!
Vacuum storage bags are an ideal storage solution when space is at a premium. These bags reduce bulk by 75% and are inexpensive and relatively easy to use. All you need is a household vacuum cleaner with a hose.
When purchasing the bags, I suggest purchasing various sizes and using a bag that is a bit larger than the items you want to store in them. There is a line on the bag and the items should not extend above that line. Otherwise, it won't work right.
Just lay the items flat in a jumbo or large storage bag and use your vacuum cleaner to evacuate the air. The trick is to make sure the air does not escape again from the hole you just sucked the air out of. A trick I use is putting a pencil in the cap that covers the hole and pushing the cover into the hole as soon as you remove the vacuum cleaner hose. This reduces the chance of air escaping too quickly.
Then stack the bags as desired.
The vacuum storage bags have an air and watertight seal that keeps out moths, dirt, moisture; mildew; musty odors; and discoloration. I would recommend not keeping them sealed for more than six (6) months at a time. Just let the air back in and put in fresh air again; then you're good for another six months!
Another Tip: For added freshness, add a fabric softener sheet to the bag before shrinking.
So, when that linen closet is stuffed and there is no more room, try this idea to create A Better Space in your closet!
