I haven't tried those spacesaver bags but I wanna try them.  I've heard mixed reviews about them.

Anybody use them and are they easy to use?

I have some. They are ok. An alternative is just ziplock bags. They have the big ones or gallon depending on what you need them for. I just put them on the ground and kneel on them while I zip it shut. That gets them just as squished as the space saver bags

I had them but after a month or so they would reinflate themselves and I got sick of redoing it so I pitched them.

I did not like mine, I liked the idea but was very disappointed in the end result.

I thought they would be great but mine also kept re-inflating so I used them for trash bags and pitched them.

Huh I've never had mine reinflate. Weird. But really just use ziplocks.

I didn't like the small ones, but the large ones that are meant for underbed storage : they have a canvas colored exterior bag and straps that clip over the space bag to help it stay down - those we like.  We use those to keep our out of season bedding in.  Holds a ton.
