All of the "stored" clothing was put into Ziploc Vacuum Bags. I was given this tip by a friend and these bags are fantastic! I can now store a year's worth of clothes on one shelf in the basement, where I used to only be able to fit 6 months of clothes. The bags were awesome and super easy to use. (I am not being compensated for this opinion. I just want to share a great product with you.) I have all of my daughter's clothing in 3 of these Ziploc bags.

They worked great! I highly recommend them.
