are those space pants your wearing?

As seen on TV!! Increase your storage space! Yeah, I know, I can't believe I bought them either. They were on an end cap in the evil store known as Target. BFF swears by them and if BFF swears by them, they have to be good. So I succumbed to temptation and bought some Space Bags. Since it is supposed to be summer sometime soon in the Midwest, I have taken all the blankets and down comforters off the beds. This creates havoc on the linen closet and decreases storage to less then nil. What harm could they do?

This morning I decided to put them to the test. I stuffed, I sealed and then I sucked. Well I didn't suck. I let the vacuum do that! What kind of girl do you think I am.... Never mind, don't answer that! Surprisingly they actually performed as they said they would - woo wee! Then the OCD kicked in. What else can I squish down to nothing? Ooo, my sweaters. Oh and maybe all of Drake's winter pants. Maybe the cats.... no I'm just kidding. Though it would alleviate all their fur that seems to be plaguing the house as of late. Then hubby walked in and got caught up in the excitement. He found bags that can hang in the closet - "Maybe I will do all my winter shirts?! Let's go to the evil store that is Target and get some more!" Sigh...and the addiction begins.

I use these all the time. I have put all baby clothes in them by season and size then woosh...flat as a pancake and ready to stack in attic. I also like the ziplock XXL bags. They work about the same and are lots cheeper.

Aren't they great? I use the mini ones in the car to store spare clothes for the boys in the event that the weather suddenly changes and we need an extra layer or two when we are away from home...

I'm sure there is a recovery center somewhere.
What shall this be called?
SBA. (Pronounced "spa")
Space Bags Anonymous, maybe?
That wouldn't sound so bad when telling your family and friends would it?

Ohh, this is a good addiction that I will try with you the next time I am at Target.

I have storage issues, anyway!

I am totally addicted to these things - totally - half my life is under my bed currently deprived of air. Someday my beanie baby collection will breath again. Okay, I'm kidding about the beanie babies but maybe not the ex-boyfriend. Whoops, did I say that outloud.

Anyhow, I'm a sucker for the As Seen on Tv stores in the mall. I'm shocked that my couch isn't bedazzled by now.
