Prepper Organization – Using Space Saver Bags

Organize Your Preps

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.

This is a top view of two similar comforters. It’s hard to tell the difference the bag makes to compact the thickness from this view.

This is a better view of how much you can compact a comforter. The left side would have been even flatter if I didn’t include that orange blanket or if I would have flattened that blanket out.

 

Space Saver Bag Review

Here is a pic of all the comforters. I used all 6 jumbo bags! I wish I would have taken a before and after pic. But use your imagination.

 

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

 

Peace,
Todd
