Closets and trunks throughout our homes tend to be stuffed full of big, bulky blankets – even in the Winter when all the blankets in the house should be out being used. There are thin, thermal blankets available, as well as “all-season” blankets. Both types can offer year-round comfort without all the bulk. But for those people who love their big, thick, heavy blankets, there is a solution!
Space Bags can take all those large items and shrink their bulkiness down to about a third of their original size. Space Bags also protect against bugs, dust and moisture so instead of putting those newly compacted blankets back in the linen closet, you can safely store them in the garage or the basement
without having to worry about them getting ruined by pests or mildew.
Have you got any small appliances hanging around your kitchen that are so seldomly used you forget you even have them? How about those huge stockpots that come out only once in awhile? Maybe you have a stash of specialty cake pans buried in your kitchen somewhere (how often are you going to make a cake in the shape of a baby carriage?). These items are big and bulky. They don’t stack well and they take up space in our cabinets. Move them out!
If you have extra space in your pantry, move your large items from your cabinets to a bottom shelf.
Small appliances can be relocated to a wide shelf in a garage or basement.
Cover appliances with a tarp, plastic sheeting, dust covers (like the ones grandma had on her toaster and mixer), or simply put an old pillowcase over each item to keep dust off.
If you cover the items individually, label the shelf with the name of the item. You’ll know which item to take down and exactly where it goes back.
