Whether you’re hopping on a plane for work or frequent flying for fun, you’ve probably faced the growing challenge of fitting what you need into your carry-on bag. Airlines are doling out more and more economy tickets that require additional fees for bringing your luggage aboard, and the allowed dimensions are getting smaller. If you want the convenience of a carry-on (and the reassurance that your airline won’t lose it in the shuffle) but can’t fit all of your clothes in a bag that meets flying standards, the Dr. Save Vacuum Travel Kit can shrink your soft items for an easier flying experience.

This vacuum kit has a high-powered pump that can shrink your clothes up to 70%. It comes with provided reusable bags, and the pump is compact enough to come with you, so you’ll have room for your clothes and some souvenirs on the way home. Even if you’re not much of a traveler, this kit can create more storage in your home by shrinking out-of-season clothes, comforters, pillows and more. The vacuum-sealing even helps preserve your garments by removing the air that carries moisture, mildew and other odors.

Normally the Dr. Save Vacuum Travel Kit costs $69.95, but right now it’s only $39 — and with the increasing costs of carry-ons, the pump will pay for itself within a round trip or two.
