Forget about those clunky space-consuming Rubbermaid containers forever (save ‘em for your sukkah decorations). These storage bag organizers are the best for storing out-of-season clothing.
There are a few things I dislike about Rubbermaid storage containers. They take up way too much space. They get really heavy. And it’s really hard to organize items within them.
These soft storage bags are simply so much better! Because they’re smaller, you can easily store one category of clothing in each one, so you don’t need to dump a container to find what you need. It’s so easy to take out your winter sweaters, and put away your summer tops in the same bag!
Because they’re small and flexible, they’re also sooo much easier to store in a convenient place (like on the top shelf of your closet!). But, since they have a view window, you can actually see everything that’s inside.
If you hand down clothing, you can use one storage bag for each size/season (i.e. size 4 summer) and they’re a perfect size.
So, save the Rubbermaid containers for the items that belong in your garage.
