Space Bags Don't Work

When you're in that flurry of nest-building and organizing, and those absurdly over-priced Ziploc bags for clothing and linens that you suck the air out of with a vacuum cleaner look really appealing because of all that precious space you'll be saving, let me give you a little unsolicited advice: it's a gimmick. I know it's hard to believe, but it's true! They really aren't as good as they sound! I have been suckered by an "As Seen On TV!" campaign. Embarrassing since I used to work in advertising and worked on spots for similarly ridiculous products and we would laugh and laugh at people's stupidity.

Who's laughin' now, monkey girl?
