So I received a sample of Ziploc Space bags in the mail to try out. So I gave it a shot. I often buy Evans clothing a year a head or so in sizes that are way too big for him. So I put a bunch of these clothes into the Ziploc space bag for storage. Almost immediately and with no real forcing the Ziploc white tab sealer that you zip across the bag to seal IT JUST FELL OFF.
We’ve all bought ‘those’ lousy Ziploc bags before. The one with the zipper and I have to throw out those bags countless times with the zipper because basically a toddler with a feather could simply knock it off the bag. We just don’t purchase that type of bag anymore in this house because they land up in the landfill rather than storing my precious items.
So after fanagling the zipper back on I found that it no longer zipped the bag up anyways so I inched along the plastic pushing it together to get it to seal. Not fun. I finally managed to get it to seal shut. I took the vacuum cleaner hose and sucked all the air out of the bag and snapped the lid shut again. That part is MEGA fun. I’ll admit it. There is something special about making your clothing MUCH smaller in a bag for storage that I find attractive. They look like they’re being sealed for consumption almost LOL.
Here is the after shot. I don’t know for the cost of these bags I really feel that they aren’t worth it. I mean it would be great for long term storage – to keep moisture, bugs, dust out. But then do your clothes come out looking like a pile or wrinkles anyways? And honestly it didn’t save THAT much space.
You get a couple of these bags in a box and they generally cost around 19.99. Is it worth it? I really don’t think 20 bucks for plastic bags are worth it. Nothing that my free Glad garbage bags can’t handle. I think I’ll stick to having my clothing folded nicely in garbage bags stacked nicely into my Rubbermaid reusable tote bins. You can put ANYTHING in those and they’re a quality produce that doesn’t fall apart in your hands. Spend the money on totes instead.
What do you think? Do you LOVE IT or LEAVE IT?
