Space Bag To Go: Travel Cube

As many of you know, we make lots of trips to Green Bay (that’s about a four hour drive from where I live). My family lives there, so when we go, we stay a couple of days. Last time we went, I packed for 4 days. Normally, we end up with 4 duffel bags which take up a ton of room (especially if we take the Prius, and we are dealing with a fairly small trunk space). This is what the kids clothes looked like before:

You are looking at for Will:

4 pairs of underwear
3 pairs of socks
3 long sleeve shirts
1 sweatshirt
2 t-shirts
3 sets of pajamas
3 pairs of pants

For Madison, I had:

2 sweatshirts
3 T-shirts
2 long sleeve shirts
3 pairs of pants
3 pairs of socks
4 pairs of underwear
2 pairs of pajamas

Definitely a lot of clothes to be packed. Here’s what they all look like in the Space Bag (after I took the air out):

Now, to get the air out, you can either roll the bag or use a vacuum cleaner and suck it out. Here’s what Bill and I packed:

You are looking at for me:

2 long sleeve shirts
1 pair of jeans
1 set of pajamas
4 pairs of underwear
2 sweatshirts
3 pairs of socks

Bill packed:

1 pair of pajamas
2 T-shirts
2 long sleeve shirts
3 pairs of underwear
3 pairs of socks

Here’s what our stuff looked like in the Space Bag:

Here’s what amazed me the most:

That’s both Space Bags in one duffel bag!!!! I’ve never gotten all of our clothes even into 2 duffel bags! Now, I know you have to be wondering if our clothes were wrinkles. Honestly, they weren’t too bad. A little wrinkle releaser, and we are set to go. The only thing I would do different next time is to have each person’s stuff in their own Space Bag.

I loved my Space Bag To Go: Travel Cube. I can’t imagine traveling without them now!

  1. Awesome, thanks for posting about this, I live in an apt. and that means a small space. I have a million baby clothes and a million clothes for myself and since I share a closet with my daughter it looks like a tornado went through my closet, I'm afraid to open the door at times. I've been thinking of trying these and now I think I will since they really do seem to save space.

    • @Jenny, I always wondered if they worked as good as they do on TV. I can say they do. I'll be actually getting a few more sets for my attic. I've got clothes upon clothes up there, and this will definitely make more room up there!

  2. Your blog seems pretty good. You got yourself a devoted reader. Keep up the good work.

  3. Space Bag is one of those products that you really have to use to understand how well they work. Watching a commercial for them just isn't the same as seeing a huge pile of stuff shrink down in person!

  4. I've heard about these bags some time ago, but I didn't realize that they can be so useful when traveling. I have to handle to you, you save a lot of luggage space, but I have one question: by using such bags to the clothes wrinkle?

    • @Mia, The things made out of cotton had more wrinkling in. However, I brought some wrinkle releaser with me that took them right out.

  5. Wow! That is awesome that everything fit into 1 duffel bag! It looks like Space Bag can really save you some room. I wonder if the amount of time you leave the clothing packed in the space bag gives it more wrinkles? For instance, if you use it to store clothing from winter during the summer?

    • @Lindsay @ Laughing Lindsay, I don't know for sure. However, the stuff that comes out of my attic this spring will be wickly wrinkled anyway. LOL

  6. I LOVE using Space Bags, especially for travel. They make packing so much easier.

  7. So, did it come out any more or less wrinkled than before?

  8. with the way flights are these days, I should really think about investing in some of those bags!

  9. Ok, I need about 20 of those!

  10. That's amazing!

    I didn't realize you could roll the air out. Duh, me.

    Thanks for sharing. I need to get some.

  11. i could never get them to work as well. thats awesome though!

  12. I love my space bags, we have used all different sizes for years.

  13. I actually own a few of these, but never remember to use them. Thanks for the reminder and showing me that they really do work.

  14. Wow, I never thought of using those for packing a suitcase…. I always take too much stuff!

  15. I love these, they are really handy and I need to get some soon. My friend has them and I steal hers every time I go anywhere!

  16. Wow, cool bag! I think I could pack some 5 t-shirts, jachet, my favorite blue ans khaki skinny jeans and there still be a lot of space for something usefull :) I think I should buy one.
