It’s weird how happy getting rid of things we don’t need anymore can make a person.
I’m in the process of doing just that right now actually. I’ve been going room to room and getting rid of things and trying to be ruthless about it. It’s hard for me to get rid of things actually – for some that’s called hoarding. For me, let’s call it not hoarding, but a deep appreciation for things I’ve spent money on and am unable to toss.
Also, known as hoarding in denial.
I was recently sent some of the Ziploc Space bag product line to help me as I organize and and try to gain some room in my closets and storage areas. I’ve used some of these before and I’m a big fan. I especially LOVE using them for winter items not currently in use. I’ve used them for storing out of season blankets, duvets and comforters that take up so much space in the linen closet. The bags come in tons of sizes so you can use them for bigger items like I’ve mentioned, right down to smaller ones for travel.
They come in Jumbo, X-Large, Large, Large Cube, Medium, Carry-on Travel Size and Suit Size hanging. It’s kind of insane how much will actually fit into just one bag. The Jumbo size will hold 2 comforters and 4 pillows. The large will hold 10-12 sweaters – that’s just crazy talk.
I didn’t even know the suit size option existed – I think the Suit size hanging bag is perfect for storing all the winter coats/items that we lovely Canadians get to enjoy for months on end (BOO – DOWN WITH WINTER!)
When you finally do re-open the bag, the items inside will be wrinkled so you need to get over that. Personally, it’s a small price to pay when you consider the advantages of the amount of storage you’re gaining in the end.
