I live in the tropics where the air is very damp and mold on everything including clothes, shoes, and other leather goods is a big problem. I have had lots of success using the Space Saver brand plastic storage bags. They are available at K-Marts, Walmart, and Target, and come in various sizes.
Items are placed into the bag, which is then zip locked shut. A vacuum cleaner is used to suck all of the air out of the bag, which not only results in the ability to store more items compactly, but items are protected from mold, mildew, moisture, and dust for very long periods of time. I also use Space Saver bags to store guest towels and linens.
