In search of clothes storage bags for keeping your seasonal wardrobe in check? Or, perhaps your closet is slightly rammed at the moment (hey, holiday sales), and you're trying to source somewhere to tackle the overflow?

Clothes storage bags are a smart buy since they are budget-friendly — especially in comparison to buying another piece of furniture (aka a clothes rack or dresser). Instead, a clothes storage bag can be used if and when you like, since most of them fold away to be stored from wandering eyes with ease. 

Whether it's your winter outerwear collection or the copious amount of bedding you've collected from going from rental to rental, pop all of this stuff into a sturdy bag and you're all set. Looking for something a little more hard-wearing? We've also rounded up the best clothes storage containers. Not only will these protect your items from moths and dust, but it's an easy way to help you stay organized even when you feel like your bedroom is a hot mess.

Zipper clothes storage bags

Keep your clothes tightly secured in a zipper storage bag. Not only does it look tidy, but the zipper also keeps anything from falling out. It's a great solution if you're in the process of moving — simply pick up the bag and go, no packing required.

Vacuum clothes storage bags

If you've never used a vac bag, welcome, dear reader, to the most satisfying corner of storage solutions. Taking the air out of your clothes makes them smaller and easier to store, all while warding off mold and unwanted moisture. You won't believe how small a stack of clothes becomes.

Garment storage bags

Some pieces deserve a little more TLC than others in our wardrobes. Whether it's the prom dress you've hung onto or a precious family heirloom — it's best kept in a garment storage bag free from moths, dirt, and unwanted dust. Oh, and quite handily, garment bags make separating your formalwear from everyday casual that much easier. 

Under-bed clothes storage bags

Making use of your under-bed storage is a super smart way to store more in your bedroom, all while using floorspace that's already unusable. Under-bed storage bags come in all shapes and sizes — you can even buy ones specifically made for shoes — but these are the best for storing clothes.

What to think about when buying clothes storage bags?

Think first about where you'll be storing your new clothes storage bag, whether that will be under your bed, at the back of a deep built-in wardrobe, or in a garage. If you're storing clothes in your garage, you might want to consider boxed storage that's water-tight, lidded, and heavy-duty such as the Really Useful Box from Amazon.

If your clothes storage is going to be on show in your home — perhaps poking out from under your bed — it'd be smart to opt for something that looks nice too, such as a decorative basket. However, if it'll be tucked way under your bed, prioritize practicality over looks.
