The Garbage Bag Solution!

July 19, 2012
Nowadays I like to buy my garbage bags in a pretty pink color, with a drawstring and a nice smell. They make me feel like a good little housewfie.

Sómeone forgot to replace the garbage bag!

Whenever I take out the trash, I make sure I immediately put in a new garbage bag. Unfortunately my husband doesn't, so there are times when I throw something in the trash can, only to realize belatedly there's no garbage bag in there! Of course this is all my fault, or so my husband tells me. Because I put the garbage bags in an odd spot. Like the kitchen cabinets next to the garbage can.

Tip for garbage bags!

But now I have found the ultimate solution to this problem: I simply put the garbage bags in the garbage can! So whenever hubby pulls out the full garbage bag he can't help but see the new garbage bags! They are looking him right into the eye!

What are you looking for in a garbage bag? Drawstring? Perfumed? Color? Size?

  1. My husband likes to put new bags into the bottom of the can like that. I like the scented bags too, and definitely drawstring!

  2. We are attempting to reduce our trash, thank Heaven, but we do also put the trash bag at the bottom of the bin to avoid "accidents". Great idea!

  3. I put the garbage bags in the garbage can too...but hubby won't replace a bag still, if he's the one to take out the garbage (which he does if it's garbage day). I also put a laundry basket in each bathroom, but his clothes end up NEXT to the basket, on the floor. *sigh* :)

  4. What a great tip! We did this at the hotel where I was a housekeeper many moons ago, but I had forgotten how helpful it can be!

  5. Great tip, we do this, but we use the store grocery bags to recycling them instead of buying one. :)

  6. Great solution!!! Although.. what I do is place one or two just in case of trash leakage. Blessings to you and yours!

    1. The Leakage Risk is wellknown to me, but it hasn't happened yet!

  7. I do the same thing! Makes it so much easier for whoever empties to put the new bag in. Only requirements are large with drawstrings for me. Haven't tried the scented ones, but may have to pick some up the next shopping trip. Thanks for sharing!

    1. The scented ones are also great for storing your Winter clothes during Summer, and your Summer clothes during Winter.
