What are Space Bags?
|Why, these are Space Bags.|
Space Bags are these awesome, giant plastic zip-lock bags. You fill them up with clothing, zip them shut with the industrial-grade zip-device, then vacuum the air out of them.
|GASP! They're so flat!|
They save you storage space, which means you can fit more into flat rate boxes (and suitcases) than you'd be able to do without them. Thus far, I have packed about twenty-five pounds worth of regular clothing, work clothing, socks, lolita clothing, accessories, jewelry and miscellaneous stuff that can take being squished into these bags.
Some of them (about a hundred pounds worth of them) will come with me in my luggage. A couple, full of smaller items and intermingled with shoes, will be sent via flat-rate priority boxes to Australia ahead of me. The majority of them, however, will store sweaters and cold-weather clothes that I won't need for a few months in my lovely, climate-controlled storage unit.
If you've got a need to store or pack something super tightly, I highly recommend these things!
