Travel packing ideas - Make your own DIY vacuum sealed travel bags for the kids' clothes. Saves about half of the space and keep clothes clean

With spring comes lots of family travel, and we’re getting ready with OshKosh B’Gosh clothes for kids! They have a bunch of cute styles for boys and girls and we just love the outfits we picked out. We took a road trip up the coast of California for spring break and hoped to pack with the least amount of bags and as light as possible. We accomplished that by using this space saving clothing hack – I encourage you to give this a try!

Spring adventure awaits! You can pack all of the cuteness and still save up to HALF of the space in your suitcase, all you need are your OshKosh clothing pieces and a plastic zipper bag to make this work. Here’s how to do it:

You will need:

  • OshKosh B’Gosh kids clothes
  • gallon sized plastic zipper bags
  • your suitcase or travel bag

OshKosh B'Gosh kids styles for spring

Neatly fold your clothing pieces into small squares. Fit as many as you can inside of the gallon plastic zipper bags by laying clothes flat next to each other. Roll some of the shirts if you need to in order to fit everything in. The smaller your kids clothing size, the more outfits you can fit into your bags!

Zip the majority of the bag shut, but leave a small corner open. Press down on the top of the bag to let out as much of the air as you possibly can and seal. Stack these bags flat on top of each other in your suitcase and you’ve saved TONS of space! In the photo below, there are 8 outfits stacked on top of each other and 4 pairs of shoes with plenty of room to spare.

I was able to get two outfits in each bag, girls size 5 and boys size 10. If you have infants or toddlers, you could easily fit 3-4 outfits in each bag! I love using these DIY vacuum sealed bags, they keep the kids’ clothes clean, saves space in our suitcase and it saves us money on checked baggage fees – we can use a carry on instead. Hooray for awesome travel packing ideas!
