Homemade Space Bags

I read in your column awhile back about someone using black trash bags and the vacuum cleaner to make a large space bag. Does anyone remember this?

I've done this! I was at my brother's and didn't have enough room to bring all my stuff home so we took a black garbage bag and put all the stuff in there and used the vacuum to suck the air out. It worked perfectly. (04/20/2007)

It works as well as the junk you buy. The problem is getting the bag to stay closed and keeping out the air. Under no circumstances waste your money on the commercial ones. They are flimsy and leak. Donate, recycle, and discard something for every item you purchase. Best way to get more space. (06/24/2010)
