Packing Tip: Ikea’s Big Blue Bag

We just returned from our fabulous wedding weekend, and thought I’d share one of my favorite packing tips.

Sometimes when we’re going away with a big group it’s easier for the hostess and ourselves to pack our own bed, bedding and towels etc…But when you get it all together it can become quite bulky and look something like this:

This is when the Ikea big blue bag comes into play, you know the ones at the check out for only 59¢? Seriously it’s the best 59¢ I’ve ever spent, I use it again and again especially on large items like these.

See look how tidy:

It’s perfect to pack in the back of the car, as it’s a major space saver.

Of course you don’t have to just back bedding, it’d work for whatever to cart around; I’m thinking it’d be supper handy with kids. Do you guys have any packing tips? There’s always room for improvement!

    Very thoughtful… I never considered bringing my own bedding. It definitely makes sense especially for large family events. I like the Ikea bag idea too. :)

    These bags are fabulous for storing sleeping bags and keeping other items together for camping. You can get two bags (packed into their own pack sacks) into a blue bag and still have room for other random bits. If your sleeping bags are down filled, I’m certain you can fit more than two in there.
