These durable vacuum storage bags will be your secret weapon for spring cleaning, and they're 50% off

Spring is almost here, and that means spring cleaning. Which will you attack first: the ungodly mess that is your wardrobe or your beyond-chaotic linen closet? Either way, it'll feel great to stow those bulky winter clothes and heavy blankets and finally restore some order. Here's the efficient, economical way to do it: Spacesaver Premium Vacuum Storage Bags. They're the kind of thing you never knew you needed until you got your hands on some — and resolved to never be without them again. A variety pack of 20 bags is up for grabs from Amazon for a generous 50% discount.

This 20-bag pack contains five small bags (16 x 24 inches), five medium bags (20 x 28 inches), five large bags (24 x 32 inches) and five jumbo bags (30 x 40 inches). You also get a hand pump.

Why is this a good deal?

These bags are just $31, down from their usual price of $62. When you consider that each bag can hold up to 5 pounds of stuff and you get 20 in this pack, you're only paying $1.55 per bag. They come with a vacuum pump for compressing your items too. This is the best price on the web you'll find right now.

Why do I need these?

How do Spacesaver Storage Bags work? You simply load them up with whatever you want to store, slide the clip across the top to create a double-zip seal, attach your vac's nozzle to the plastic port, and suck out all the excess air. The result: That bulky, unwieldy pile of clothes or bedding is now up to 80% smaller.

Now, imagine that times 10 bags. You're looking at way more storage space in your closets, your drawers, under the bed — and a tidier, more organized home. Planning a move? Meet your new best friend. Another great feature: These will keep your clothing and linens hermetically sealed and protected from dust and other grime. They can also help you pack for vacation, adding up to 80% more space in your carry-on, duffle or suitcase. The free hand pump will make prepping your luggage for the trip back home doable (and let you make room for all that fab shopping you did).

These bags come in a variety of sizes. To get an idea of what the sizes mean: A small bag will fit six to eight sweaters; a medium bag, eight to 10; a large bag, 10 to 12.

What reviewers say

Over 51,000 shoppers have bestowed five-star raves on these Spacesaver bagsa recent shopper even called them their "best purchase this year."

"I have used the Spacesaver Bags for over 20 years," said one loyal buyer. "These bags are durable, easy to use (and re-use) and the company truly backs their product. Follow the instructions, don’t overfill and you will get years of use out of your bags. Don’t forget to think outside the box. We recently used the largest size to seal some of my daughter’s belongings that went into storage during a relocation."

"My tendency to buy clothes and let them languish in drawers and closets led to overflowing chaos," said another five-star fan. "Desperate for a solution, I skeptically tried this space-saving marvel—and to my delight, it exceeded my expectations! Now, not only are my clothes shielded from the elements and pesky bugs, but I've also reclaimed a significant amount of space. Two closets and three drawers condensed into two roomy drawers, leaving me with a newfound sense of organization."

"I am so a fan," raved another shopper. "I have a large inventory of crocheted afghans for my shop plus the usual clothing and comforts one just can't let go. My walk-in closet was not walk-in for all the stored items. Now, it is a walk-in again and neat and organized."

"It's quite amazing how much space can be saved by sucking out air! I tend to use my Dyson, but got lazy once when I didn't have the vacuum in the basement and used the pump which also worked," said a final reviewer. "Note: If there is air leakage, be sure to put your ears closer to the bag and you can actually hear where air is escaping. Then you just seal better."

Even the smallest bags in this set can compress several bulky sweaters.
