One of my favorite things


I am often asked if I believe in using those vacuüm seal storage bags you see on infomercials (space bags). Most do not work well. If you finally do get them to seal up, the seal will likely break open and you may unfortunately finds your linens or other contents have “exploded” into your storage area.

Clear PEVA Storage Chests

As an option, I love the PEVA Clear Storage Containers from The Container Store.

    • they are clear so that you can see the contents of your bag;
    • the zippers are durable so that the contents may be removed &
      replaced time after time;
    • they have handles on each side for ease of use;
    • they come in 3 different sizes;
    • they are affordable $7.99 – $9.99 each;
    • they will stack on top of one another on shelves or fit nicely as under-bed storage.

I store extra linens in this way: comforter or sleeping bag / blanket / sheets / pillow — all in one bag. This way, when we have “overflow” company at the holidays (more than will fit into our 3 extra guest rooms) and we need to utilize sofas and bring out the air mattresses for sleeping, I can simply pull out one storage chest for each guest. So easy!
