Stuck with a small closet in your bedroom? Does it seem like there’s never enough space for all your things in your closet? I get it; I’ve had the same problem. Today I’m sharing a small closet organization trick that will make it easier to fit more clothes, blankets, pillows, and more into your closets.
Recently my husband and I redid our bedroom: new paint, new flooring, and new organization. The big closet that used to hold just my things is no longer just mine. Due to the way we restructured our bedroom, I was now going to have to share my closet with my husband.
I got rid of over half of my clothes, which actually felt quite good. We still needed to consolidate, though, so we went to Lowe’s to buy some Ziploc® Space Bag® products.
We found the products on an end cap at the very back of the store in the home organization section. There were lots of different sizes and types of bags. We ended up getting the Ziploc® Space Bag® 2 Cube Variety Pack, a Ziploc® Flexible Totes Jumbo, and a Ziploc® WeatherShield Box.
The Ziploc® Space Bags® are SO cool and fun to use! Just pack the bag with your items, zip it up, then place your vacuum hose on the round circle to remove the extra air. Then watch the magic happen. Your things will shrink almost instantly right before your eyes! When most of the air has been released, just close the lid over the hole.
It’s incredible how much space you can save with small closet organization using these bags! They provide 3x the storage as compared to uncompressed storage volume, and they protect my items from dirt, dust, moths, and mildew. They also have a new film with Shield Technology that offers the toughest protection for your things.
I placed four standard pillows in the XL bag and a big blanket in the L bag. You can see how much room these items took up in our closet before.
I placed the cubes inside a Ziploc® Flexible Totes Jumbo, then placed the tote in my closet. I want to go back to Lowe’s and get more of these. I can easily fit another XL and L cube inside the box because I still had plenty of room in it ,which means I can go buy another comforter set. 🙂
I placed our good white down duvet in the Ziploc® WeatherShield Box. It was a perfect fit, and is a great way to store my duvet since it protects it from moisture, dirt, and pests.
So here’s what my closet looks like now after my small closet organization. I love how organized and clean it looks! The same items take much less space in my closet now, and I still have more room to fit two more bags inside the Ziploc® Flexible Totes Jumbo.
