  • I put them in garbage bags then put the vacuum cleaner hose in to get out the air. It's not as effective as those bags you buy but it works well enough. Just remember to twist the bag shut as you're pulling out the hose and tie it tightly with rope or string of some sort.

  • Have any platic rubber maid tubs that you can clean out and use for the blankets? Or did you save the plastic zipper bags that the bedding came in? That's what all my bedding is stored in. Or those rubber maid containers are only 3 to 8 bucks each.

  • I store mine under the bed, I just fold it up and shove it under there. No one can see them and I'll never loose them there.

  • Oh yeah do what afeggan said. I heard that one on a helpful hints show. After you vacuum the air out and twist the bag shut you can then store them in those empty suitcases stored in the basement.
