I remember watching infomercials when I was younger, and one of them most often on was the infomercial for the Space Saver. I was always fascinated by the concept; is that weird? Anyway, I'm sure you've heard of it too, but in case you haven't, here is a recap: They are these awesome bags that you can put a bunch of stuff in and then *poof* they are small! Okay, not so much 'poof' as 'vvvrrrhhrhhrrrrrr' but still. Awesome. It makes me think of a quote, "PHENOMENAL COSMIC POWERS! Itty-bitty living space!" That was the first movie I ever saw in a movie theatre. I was little, and I was SOOOOOO excited to be seeing a real movie in a real theatre! With popcorn and everything!
Anyway, the Space Saver. There are all sorts of different shapes and sizes of bags, and even some that you can roll up to get the air out! You know, for those times you accidentally forget your convenient pocket vacuum. Happens to me all the time. See, look how many bags:
The roll-up ones are cool. I can't wait to use them on our next vacation! But I think my favorite are the extra large cube and the tote. Both are great for storing blankets, which is what I will be using my Space Saver bags for the most - blankets take up a lot of space, seriously. Okay, watch this...
Oh, scary! Big, messy, cluttered pile of blankets! What ever will I do with all of these?
Oooohhh! Aaaaaahhh! This is the cube. (Side note: not so much a cube as a rectangle, but whatever.) Just being in this bag is already taking up a ton less space. For reference, there are 10 blankets and 1 comforter in that bag. Wow, right?
Bwa ha ha ha, meet Mr. Vacuum! Dun dun DUUUUUUNNNNN!!!
And there you have it. A squishy bag half the size of the chair it was just about as big as in the beginning, and my vacuum (by the way, have you met Mr. Dyson? He's lovely, ain't he?) that takes up less space, and also makes it so I don't have to worry about spiders in my blankets. Seriously, that's something I worry about. Don't mock me.
All in all, I really do love the Space Saver bags and would totally recommend them to anyone needing to free up a little space, or just have fun like a juvenile kid. I've never in my life so badly wanted to stick everything in a bag and vacuum it out just to see what it would do. I shouldn't be allowed out by myself. And yes, I did get these freaking awesome bags for free in exchange for my honest review. Which this is. Honest. My opinion. Not necessarily your opinion. Are we good?
