Whether you need to maximize space in your home, luggage or moving boxes, these space saver bags condense clothing, pillows, linens and more to a fraction of their original size. Not only will the airtight bags save you space, they also protect your items from moisture, odors, dust, insects, vermin and more.
When shopping for space saver bags, size is key. Most space saver bags tout being able to reduce the size of items by 60 to 80 percent, but they have to fit into the bags at their original size first. Choose extra large or jumbo bags to fit pillows, cushion, bulky linens and fluffy winter jackets and coats for off-season storage. Medium and small bags are best for vacuum compressing smaller textiles — especially clothing being packed for travel.
Make sure space saver bags are made of thick, durable material and feature quality zipper seals and airtight valves. Some bags can be compressed with a hand pump that may or may not be included, while a standard vacuum nozzle can be attached to others. Roll-up compression bags require neither, and can be better for use while traveling.
