Organizing Cubes for Travel and Home

Lewis N Clark Compression Bags, Set of Four
AAA Member Price $14.99

Tight on space?  Compression bags are the answer!  These reusable multi-purpose bags provide up to 3X more space in a suitcase, gym bag and storage tote. Simply place items inside, seal with the sliding tab and roll to compress the air out the one-way air valves. That’s right, there’s no vacuum needed!

Great for storing bulky winter clothing like puffer jackets and coats under beds in unused luggage, or store extra pillows, towels, and fleece blankets in closets and RV’s. The possibilities are endless!

They are also ideal for dirty laundry –  they seal in odors!  Whether in your luggage or at home, zip clothes inside and store until you’re ready to wash.  And, since they are airtight, they protect against moisture, dirt, and insects.

Each pack includes: 2 Med 15” x 24” and 2 Large 17” x 28”

Eagle Creek Specter Sac Medium
Member Price $14.50

The Eagle Creek Specter Sac has a million and one uses to keep luggage, home, and RV’s organized.  At 10” x 8”  it is the perfect size to keep small accessories organized like electronics, maps, toiletries and more while traveling.  At home use it to store your travel toiletries inside your unused luggage – you’ll be ready to head to the airport in no time!

Speaking of toiletries, now is a great time to clean out bathroom drawers and organize all those travel-size shampoo bottles, lotions, and makeup samples – you know you have them.  Be “travel-ready” for future trips.  The gusseted Sac base enables it to stand up on a countertop, which makes it useful for cosmetics and toiletries when sharing a bathroom.

And the Specter Sac is especially great for keeping PPE (masks, hand sanitizer, etc.) organized for road trips.  Pack in the side pocket of a car door or the center console for quick access.

From day hikes to sightseeing – the swivel clip allows you to clip the sac onto any bag or backpack.

Size: 10” x 8”
Fabric:  30D Silnylon Ripstop
