tube size/compatability question.......

Will a 700x19-26mm tube work for 700x28mm tire? I know that they make tubes that are 700x28-32 but they are way bigger than the other tubes and my saddle bag is super full. So what I want to know is if I can get away with using the smaller tube so I can save space in my bag? Has anyone done this or had any experience with it?

Been using the smaller inner tubes for 40+ years.
