Recently, I just had my “last season’s” clothes off of my closet and as I was having my morning stroll in a department store this morning, I spotted this awesome invention–It’s a vacuum-type resealable bag. Perfect for jet setters or just simply organizing your closet, I gave it a try and got myself the medium size.
Lock N Lock, makers of the famous non-leak food containers ventured to a new product, which is another remarkable invention: SmartBag. Made from Korea, these resealable bags have this special one-way valve that works with any household vacuum cleaner. It sucks the air out of the bag and saves you up to 60% storage space.
Since I was planning to send some bulky sweaters over L.A., this is perfect to save some space in my package. I put in two thick sweaters, a foldable hamper, and other whatnot inside the bag. Sealed it to place and stuck our vacuum cleaner to the one-way air valve. Then, voila! My bulky package is zapped into a thin vacuumed piece of plastic bag.
It’s really awesome. You can get the same thing from any ACE Hardware outlet or SM department store. The medium 48 x 60 cm bag (like the one in the picture below) is only at Php 299.75 🙂
