Organize Your Preps!
Preppers need to learn how to organize! Some would say we do this because we horde stockpiles of “stuff,” but the reality is, we just want to be able to find what we’re looking for when we need it! So, prepper organization is important and having a strategy and some tricks up your sleeve is always a plus!
Recently, I moved back into a room I can call “my office.” Getting the oldest son married and his room cleaned out with stuff he left behind was exciting because now I can do the podcast and videos from my new office.
As a result of moving stuff around and cleaning up, we realized we had a bunch of comforters, sheets, and pillows that we have accumulated over the years. Most would donate the items (and I do that a lot), but being that comforters are valuable in winter, and you never know when you’re going to need some extra blankets, I decided to keep them. BUT, they take up so much darn space that I needed a solution.
My solution was Jumbo Space Saver Bags. These bags allow you to put items in, seal them up and then suck out the air with a pump that comes with the purchase. The bags I purchased are huge, 40 x 30 inches!
Unfortunately, I didn’t take a picture of all the comforters and blankets I had to store, but I did grab some pics after I realized how well the bags were working. I share the pics below with some commentary.
If you are looking for a space saving solution for your comforters, blankets, and towels, then you should consider Space Saver Bags. You can purchase them on Amazon.

Have you used Space Saver Bags before? I would like to hear your thoughts?

Just joined the group today after spending the afternoon reading articles.. Very impressed.. thankyou.
As for the vac bags, I have used them extensively on several mission trips and incorporated them, or food vacuum bags in both my EDC and Bug Out bags… Saves space, keeps everything dry and if done right, re-seal and re-use.
Keep up the great work.
Thanks for checking out the articles and the encouragement.
I really like these bags. They really compressed these blankets down. I know a friend who has taken students on mission trips who has used the bigger Ziploc bags in this fashion to compress clothes to save room. They work too! 😉
