Birthday Present Idea: The Vacuum-pak


While writing about my wardrobe recently, and looking in my closet even more recently, I came up with the idea of saving closet space.

The last birthday and last Christmas, I ran out of things that I wanted. However, I have something in mind now. They used to be real popular when they came out in the late 1990s, but I haven’t personally seen one.

That’s where you can take a bunch of clothes, put them in a plastic bag, and vacuum suck all of the air out of it. When this happens, the clothes become compressed and it looks like it’s all hard and wrinkled.

However, when you open the bag, the wrinkles disappear and everything looks all fresh.

I have a lot of clothes in my closet, and a good amount of it is all my fault for having gone some sizes up in clothing. However, space is a premium, and it’s something I would really like. Besides, it’s not as if I’m going to be wearing some of these 2x shirts anytime soon.
