Space Saver Bags

...the ones you can use your vacuum to suck the air out and take up less space...

Are they worth it?  Any experiences with them?

I haven't tried them, but I have a good friend who swears by them. She has 7 kids and has been using them for about 8 or so years now. Ever since her MIL bought her a Starter Set from an Infomercial.

I have some! Love them. We just wash our "winter" blankets, Christmas tree skirt, stockings, table cloths, etc., fold them up and place them in the bags and then vacuum the air out. I place mine in a large Rubbermaid and shove it in the garage. I think I have three comforters, a couple of men's heavy coats, and holiday stuff in one Rubbermaid...which used to fill about 4 totes, not in bags. If you have a lot of stuff you use occasionally every year, they're worth it. I have found that I can gat them fairly cheap at Bed, Bath & Beyond with a coupon.

I have several.  I really like using them to store baby clothes.  We stored all of my daughter's infant clothes and baby bedding in space bags in preparation for our second child.  Now we use them to store my son's infant clothes he has not yet grown into.  I think I bought mine from Walmart.

I have found that if you don't move them around to much they work great. I've had the seals Pop open on me if I move them to much. So of you have a place to store them, they are fantastic. I'm pregnant right now, so I have all my clothes I can't currently fit in a giant space bag under my bed. :)

I use them to seal baby clothes to store. They work okay, i get them at bjs w a coupon so they are cheap. They get super heavy when you suck the air out. I didnt expect that.

They are ok, not as good as they claim. Mine don't stay sealed :(

 I've wanted to try them, but I've heard that they make your clothes really wrinkly and the wrinkles are almost impossible to get out.  Has that been the experience of anyone who has them?

Not in my case but I usually wash and dry the clothes I have stored when I take them out of the bag.
