I always save the clear zippered bags that sheets, comforters, etc. come in to use for storing sweaters in the summer, children's puzzles, toys, heirloom baby clothes, or anything that comes to mind. Great storage for just about anything!

Never store anything in plastic that needs to breathe, like cotton heirloom clothing, quilts, etc. All those natural fibers need air to breathe. Do store them in cotton only pillowcases to let them breathe and to stop them from mildewing!
I needed storage for a lot of skeins of yarn after filling a huge tote of them and came across the zippered bags that I had kept for "in case". They worked out well to put the rest of the yarn in and compress down. You can see the colors you have and how much. I use the bags also for storing finished or unfinished projects until I am ready to use or give as gifts or complete.
