Pillow Storage Idea

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker

Have you all had problems finding good storage solutions for your pillows? Well, I discovered something that works pretty well. I bought those zip-up garment bags that hang on a rod. You can stack about 12 pillows in them and the pillows fit the size perfectly. If you get clear ones then you can organize them by color. This way they are protected from mildew, dust, critters, whatever and you can keep them really organized. I just hung a rod in my garage and can hang several of the bags on it.

Here is a picture. One note, if you have a lot of these they can get pretty heavy so make sure your rod has good support.

I love that idea.  I have been keeping my pillows in boxes, but the boxes take up so much room.  Keep the great suggestions coming!

Kelly, great idea and thanks for the photos.  I have too many tubs of pillows, taking up too much space and this looks like a great solution.  Now I just have to get a clothes pole up to hang them.  The great storage debacle never ends!

Excellent storage solution Kelly for pillows.  I was toiling with space saver bags but hated the idea of always having to reseal the bag after finding the pillow I needed for a project.  Thanks.

Kelly, so simple and so obvious...just not to me!

Thank you so much for this post and picture. I have a couple of those bags hanging around and of course a bunch of pillows...time to unite them!

Great idea Kelly. Now if there could only be clear zip up storage bags! Thank you for sharing this tip.

Wendy, Ziplock and Space Bag both make XL and XXL heavy duty clear zip up bags.  I can get a cal king comforter into the XXL size.  The same size will hold 4-8 pillows depending upon how "plump" they are.  They are handy, particularly for transport. 

I get mine at WalMart.

Kelly,
That is a great idea! I have been trying to figure out a good way to store my pillows when they are not being rented. Problem solved!

What a fabulous idea...I can't wait to try it.  I currently keep mine on a shelf, they take up way too much space on the shelf.

Thanks for the tip,

This is a fabulous idea.  Thanks for posting a picture.  I've tried using XL Ziploc bags, but they don't hold many pillows.

Kelly - How did I miss this?!  Excellent idea - and the after Christmas sales have already started - I'll be out looking for these (clear) bags in the next day or so!

Excellent idea, right now I have them is large (king size) clear pillowcase covers but you can only fit a few. It is funny how we stagers come up with ideas for other items. LOVE IT

It looks like you have a whole lot of different pillows at home in storage there! I should think that a vacuum seal bag might help you to save a fair bit more space though, or perhaps getting rid of the cushions altogether since they're just sitting in the hanging wardrobe! You can always keep the covers and rotate those when you want to have a change of look on the sofa!
