My new favorite thing...


Has anyone tried these before??  I bought them a few months ago while browsing at our one and only store, Walmart.  Last weekend I decided to finally use them while trying to organize Makayla's closet.  She's wearing 6-9 month old clothes now and I still hadn't cleaned out all the newborn and 0-6 month clothing.  And it was ALOT. I was gonna give some away, but we're going to have more kids so I decided I better keep it.  Plus I don't think I can part with alot of the really cute outfits, is that weird?  I feel some sort of attachment to them.  Does that mean I'm a hoarder? Oh well...
Anyway, here's the finished product.


I was SO amazed at how much space these things save!! WOW!  I had 3 bags packed to the max with baby clothes, and then sucked out the air with our vacuum cleaner and the bag shriveled down to a flat package.  So instead of having 3 large totes of clothes stacked in a closet, I have 2.5 flat bags that I could neatly put under Makaylas crib.  I was pretty excited.
In fact, I'm gonna get more for our summer clothes and extra bedding.  They are reusable so you can open and close them as often as needed.
Oh the simple joys of organization.

These are amazing! I am not a gadget girl, but I was a little obsessed with these when we moved to Quito. Thanks to these bags, we could bring bedding, linens, and lots of clothes. I am joining you in the fan club! Love you! Katie

LOL - No, it's not weird to be attached to Makayla's clothes -- I still have a few things I kept of yours and the boys kids stuff... just cuz :) Good job organizing, Jam....
