Hopping on a plane and discovering a new destination is one of the most freeing things a traveler can do. The one thing that sets you back? Your airline’s ever-shrinking carry-on limits that force you to choose between another outfit or a souvenir for the fam.
The good news is that you don’t have to hand over a chunk of cash to check your bag anymore. The Dr. Save Vacuum Travel Kit squishes your clothes to about half their size, giving you more luggage room for that handcrafted street art you couldn’t live without.
Similar in mechanics to Space Bags, these vacuum bags are a small-space savior. Each kit comes with four airtight bags and a high-powered pump that shrinks your favorite sweaters and leggings by up to 70%. The pump is small enough to fit in your carry-on, so you can also use it with a weekender bag.
This space-saving gadget doesn’t just help out on the road, it’s also a great option for anyone who needs to KonMari their closet. It shrinks blankets, out-of-season clothes, linens and more to get your dresser drawers and closet shelves under control. The vacuum sealing also protects your favorite tops and jeans from moisture, mildew and odors that plague poorly stored clothes.
Usually, you’d fork over $70 for this space-saving kit, but you can efficiently pack for your next trip (or finish up your at-home spring cleaning) right now for $39 while it’s 44% off.
