As promised, I want to update everyone on my experiment with Space Bags. In short, they were a total and complete epic fail. As I had expected, the air very quickly escaped and now I'm left with a puffy bag o' comforter that is threatening to sneak out from under my bed and possibly smother me. Boo.
Just to double check that it wasn't user error (I like to cover all my basis), I checked with some fellow PO's (that's professional organizers). The consensus was the same. No one had any success using them and some even claimed to literally hate them. See folks, this is why I try things out before recommending them to you! A waste of money but it was MY money so you can all breath a sigh of relief.
I did, however, get a recommendation for these Ziplock Storage Bags. While Ziplock doesn't mention it, people have had success with vacuuming the air out of these as well! So, check back next week for a review on those...I'm determined to find a product to store these darn comforters already!
Remember, life is easier when it's organized!
