September Storage Solutions Week 4: Big Comforters and Blankets – SPACE BAGS!!!

I get questions from people all the time about home stuff – what paint colors would I use, where did I get such and such item, what is that thing we use instead of having cable…etc.

Most of the time I can point people to a blog post that I’ve written and it gives them all the info they need. But, occasionally I get a question about something I haven’t covered.

Here is what my friend Lisa wrote to me in a Facebook message:

This is a GREAT question! And honestly, one I hadn’t tackled yet.

Until tonight – yayy!

Here we go –

Smaller blankets: they go in our linen closet – a huge mess. I’ll tackle that later.

Sleeping bags: those are rolled up in the bottom of one of our closets.

Handmade quilts from my grandmothers: folded on the top of this cabinet in our hallway.

This is a free cabinet someone left in a house we sold – and I have big plans for it one day!

Now – for the biggy – Big Huge Over Sized Stinkin’ Comforters:

Yep. There you go. They are currently folded at the end of the bed in our spare bedroom – which, if you didn’t know is currently holding ALL of our accessories from our house. This was my experiment during July and I haven’t felt like putting anything back up yet. So. Here it all sits.

I have a handful of these big comforters. I don’t like to get rid of them because I like to change them out with the seasons on our beds and also put them inside duvet covers. I got most of them for SUPER cheap and I don’t like to pay a lot of money in this area.

Tonight, we came up with a solution = SPACE BAGS!

Brian and I went on a cruise about 10 years ago and decided to pack our clothes inside these space bags. It was genius. We got them at Big Lots for about $10 a box I do believe.

We used the XL bag and the 2 Large bags tonight for 3 big comforters.

Here is a size comparison of the XL bag – next to my rather Xlarge size 11 feet – HA:

And sorry – I don’t measure things, so I have no idea how big this is if you’re wondering. Ask Brian if that is something you really want to know.

We took the biggest winter heavy comforter and laid it out to go in the bag.

NOTE: This takes 2 people.

We doubled it over when we got it all the way inside.

Pictures really don’t do this justice.

Then, we worked on the 2 smaller comforters.

And now – all 3 of the big huge comforters are about as small as the one big one and fit nicely under our bed!!
